I have to say that this is the worst place we have eaten at EVER. I really don't know which restaurant the other reviewers visited (that the French reviewers had a better experience does not surprise me, more about that later). We came to the restaurant (still empty) and asked for a table (3 people) - the only table they... More

We wanted a traditional meal of the Rhone Alpes area so what could be better than fondue? After polling the hotel staff we got 2 restaurant names, one was closed so our choice was easy. L'Alpin seemingly was run by a couple. Service was friendly and excellent. We enjoyed a regional charcuterie platter and a huge pot of melted regional... More

I'm in Annecy from time to time and always eat here. Love the tartiflette, which I suppose is a local specialty. It's a nice and cosy place, friendly waiters.

While shopping this season, we stumbled upon this little jewel. An unassuming place but the food was very nice, specifically the gratin d'onion. The servers were a treat.

Strolling through old Annecy, passing many touristy restaurants, we came upon this little gem. Lots of regulars having lunch. We had the daily special, a raclette with sausages. Good portion and delicious cheese. Would definitely go back.

We chose this place for lunch just because of the past du jour....a tartiflette, of course. Friendly place. Quite empty when we arrived but filled up quickly....lots of locals and regulars. Lunch was very good, bubbling hot in a little cast iron pan, substantial portion with charcuterie and salad. Quite drinkable house wine. Service was OK. Considering how busy it... More

I visited on a recommendation and was lucky enough to get a table on a Saturday night without booking, but I'd recommend booking ahead if you're planning on coming at the weekend. Bamboozled by the menu I simply had their signature dish which was fantastic and washed down with a lovely bottle of red all for a fairly reasonable price.... More

Local rich food in a nice atmosphere with friendly service. You couldn't eat this rich food every day...but for a one-off, excellent.

We enjoyed excellent tartiflettes accompanied by a really nice Provencal rosé wine. However, the service from two female members of staff was rude and brusque. That spoiled the overall experience. What a shame.
