One of the best places to eat in Ferney, more upmarket than most other places yet still good value for money.

We went for dinner - a good choice of 5 main dishes - fish/duck/risotto/hamburger/beef, with small appetizer thrown in for E25 a head. With wine, dessert and coffeee, count E45/person. Pleasant atmoshere, with different sized tables and subtle wall colours and good lighting, service was efficient and discrete. An agreable place to take friends.

The restaurant serves a unique entry, and a limited but entirely sufficient choice of main dishes. All the main dishes we tried so far have been very tasty - try the burger, the fish with "salsifies" sauce, or the duck. The entry is usually good, but there are unfortunately some exceptions (such as the chestnut pannacotta which was rather tasteless).... More

Versatile and charming restaurant with sizeable "terrasse" AND welcoming interior - so in other words, suits all four seasons. Good lunch menu for under 20 euros, and well-selected wines available in many quantities. Beautifully-presented food with colourful accompanying vegetables. Helpful and patient staff. All in all a lovely lunch treat. I will try dinner there some time soon.

I read about this place here and sought it out. Ask for the English menu - I hope they do not change it as the direct translation is rather special The food was good and the service friendly.

Friendly, tasty and casual. I never hesitate to go for a lunch there. The strange table around a fishtank makes for interesting conversations

A colleauge of mine recommended this restaurant to us. Good choice indeed, the food is delicious and service is ok. I had the Souris D Agneau while my friends had the tartare de boeuf. It was great. Dessert was delicious as well, Gratins d Agrume was light and tasty.

Thank Liany
