Great find on a side street. My foody friends were not disappointed. From the warm, friendly service and a birds eye view of the chef preparing mouthwatering dishes, the best was yet to come. Our waitress was wonderful; helpful and knowledgeable. There was not one of us who were disappointed. Every dish was well presented and a taste sensation! A... More

If you only eat in one restaurant in La Clusaz, make sure it's this one. If you're not even going to La Clusaz, go and eat here. It's worth making the effort to go and experience, if you're in the town anyway you have no excuse: GO! The staff were absolutely charming, the atmosphere, lighting and decor were perfect and...

I’ve known La Clusaz since the mid-seventies. It’s a lot larger now and the restaurant offering has changed (hasn’t it everywhere?) from very traditional Haut Savoie French to a great variety of food from cooked cheese and charcuterie to food with bells on that costs a lot. But this restaurant serves excellent food that is well worth that bit extra... More

This restaurant has a great reputation but I didn't order well and had a very odd Salmon dish which was cold and when I saw all the lovely meat dishes ordered by my friends I was disappointed. Ask the sommelier to recommend the wine they have great selection and he is fantastically experienced.

Excellent menu and ambience but the tables are turned over twice in the evening which means you eat at 7 or 9. We had to vacate our table for 9pm which was a shame. All courses cooked well, very friendly atmosphere and staff and a lovely ambience.

We had high hopes given the good reviews but felt disappointed by our meal. The food arrived very quickly and the chicken dish which was €38, was dry as if it had been prepared some time ago. Likewise my husband's lamb was quite dry. Funnily enough they were both suggestions from the maitre d.

This was the gastronomic high spot of several restaurants we ate at in La Clusaz. Earlier reviews suggested this was a wine bar trying to operate above its station in life, but things must have changed as although the setting and atmosphere remain informal (the ubiquitous rustic wood interior), some of the food is quite sophisticated, a girolle soup being...

Wow, we've just returned from a fantastic evening in this restaurant. Someone recommended it during the day and we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely enthusiastic about the food, which was just excellent, the wine recommendations were great. A wonderful meal in a beautiful setting, lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced. We'll definitely eat there again soon!
