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.

Had the cheese fondue and we could feel our arteries blocking but boy was it good! Friendly service and spoke English. We were even given free very potent juniper shots which hit the spot. No booking was required as it wasn't a busy period. I would recommend it.

Warm and friendly staff, traditional setting and delicious Savoyard cuisine. We would particularly recommend the house special which consists of 3 dishes - tartiflette, crozet (pasta) with mushrooms and gratin of diots (spicy sausage) served with charcuterie and mixed salad - delicious!

We stay 2 days in Annecy and we go two times. Waiters welcome you and are very friendly (not easy in France..) . Not to many dishes but everything ok, don't miss 'cheese fondue', tartare and the trio. Good choice of wines and also price is ok. To go.

I went here recently with some family and was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't look like much from the outside, especially in winter, but inside is very cosy and decorated in chalet style. We were even more impressed by the food. We ordered the tartiflette and the trio Savoyard--basically 3 ramekins of baked cheesy, caramelized goodness. The salad they came with... More
