Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: From our 160 seats south orientated terrasse, or from one of our 4 inside dining rooms with a total capacity of 160 seats, you will can start your meal by one of our salades, snails, or other house made soups, by our home made Foie Gras, or our beef carpaccio with or without fries. You could follow by a beef tartare, or a breast of duck, or a piece of lamb For the most hungry ones, you will choose our 500gr XXL entrecot, or our ZLATAN Burger and its 360gr steak!!! Obviously the specialities like the fondues, raclettes, and other hot stones, tartiflettes, would satisfy the traditionals savoyard cuisine! For the smallest apetites, our home made pizzas could be taken away. We do not forget the sweet adepts, with our home made deserts like tiramisu, chocolate cake, tatin tarte, or our revisited blackberries tarte... and our ice cream.

There are better places to go to. The staff are more like prison wardens. It's very expensive and the ordering system doesn't work

Food good.... salads plentiful...
All mains around 20 euros....
Drinks around 6euros for a beer and around 5 for soft drink..
Coffees 5 euros...
We had seafood salad... salmon lasagne which was delicious and a burger..
Service was good despite a being Easter Sunday and we did not book... although for some reason they jumped us in front of another family who were waiting before us...
However my parting memory will be the gents toilet which can only be described as a disgrace, and falling apart... literally.. considering the cost of food the restaurant should be ashamed...!!!

Great food traditional in particular. Right on the edge of the pistes so we returned for lunch when we were again pleased with the food. The location and the food are the attractions the service leans more towards the disinterested French stereotype. Still we went back!

Group of 14 of us visited. Booked 3 days in advance and when we arrived they had split us on to separate tables even though large tables available. 4 Powercuts! First 2 bottles of wine we wanted were out of stock. Mains out of stock! Desserts out of stock! Left over 10% tip on top of large bill yet staff chased us out the restaurant saying we had under paid by €5!!! We had not as he couldn’t count and we had to count it in front of the staff. What food was available on the menu was very good. Personally I would choose other restaurants around the area.
