Rather crowded, rather noisy. Service depends on who is serving. Speedy but impersonal. The wife of the owner who runs the restaurant can be brusque.Good fondues, but the wine list is more than limited because it caters to a 18-25 years old crowd on weekends.Mojitos made from a mix are de riguer. All the chalet decoration comes from the owner's... More

Lovely place outside Paris. The place itself makes you feel in the mountains. Sometimes they have concerts but I didn't get the chance to see one yet. Food is very good.

Everything is in the headline, if only they could be a bit more friendly and be more timely with the food they would rate much better....over 45 minute wait for 4 simple crepes....

The atmosphere is nice, there is a parking, but we have done the mistake to take the Fondue. It was the worse fondue I never ate. The taste was not good, i think they forgot to put wine on it. Normaly at the end we could have eggs on it, but this time it was not proposed and very expensive.... More

Highly pleasing to the palate. The nutella crêpe (la Marmotte) was absolutely fantastic. The "chocolat chaud maison" (hot chocolate) was great (not too sweet, not too bitter, richness of taste). My only complaint is that like most outdoor establishments in France, you will find scores of cigarette smokers and if the wind is not favorable, you will likely have smoke... More

I was visiting Paris on a business trip, and my colleagues suggested to visit this restaurant. The restaurant has an alpine theme, and is set within a wooden cabin. Most of the food is either a choice of crepes or cheese fondue, although there are other items to choose from. Service was very good and attentive. The restaurant was full,... More

If you like cheese, and the whole Savoyade fondue thing, you'll love this. The Palaiseau locals seem to - it was very busy and I guess you need to book ahead. Good dinner.
