Rob is a great chef. Le Renard has a great atmosphere for dinner, and small bar for drinks pre or post dinner. Great for small or larger groups.

I visited La Renard this evening with my family. As a vegan I find it quite difficult eating out in Chatel. However we booked our table here in advance and I mentioned I was vegan, and was told they could cater for me. I had a lovely meal. A huge salad with mixed veggies and bread for starter, aubergine gratin... More

Fantastic value for money. One of the best set menus we have ever had in France, and we've been regular visitors for over 25 years. Friendly and helpful service with well presented food.

Visited Le Renard last night with family. Warm welcome from the staff (and the dogs!) into a very warm and comfortable environment. Went for the traditional Savoyarde fare - Raclette and Fondue, both of which were excellent. Proportions were generous but we found room for dessert which was equally good. A hidden gem away from the mainstream Chatel restos. Would... More

Visited Le Renard a week ago during friends annual ski trip to Chatel. Great cosy atmosphere and very good value for money. Only slight criticism was that the soup of the day was a little too salty for my taste. Otherwise would highly recommend.

A regular visitor to this restaurant, I can vouch for the quality and quantity of the meals. There is a choice of menus from a la carte to a set menu. Salads are quite special and leave you with little room for the main course let alone dessert. There is an extensive wine list. The clientele are a mixture of... More

4 friends of early 40's from Bristol stayed in Chatel area and visited Le Renard upon a recommendation. We all enjoyed the menu of the day at 28 euro which was excellent value despite we couldn't all manage a dessert after the selection of cheeses and even passed up on the coffee. After a tough day on the slopes this... More

We (my family and I) have visited Châtel every year since 1995. Our holidays are not complete without visiting Le Renard! They manage to keep the fresh food, services and hospitality at a high level. Cheers!!
