Great lunches

We had lunch here twice and both times chose the competitively priced plat du jour. The first occasion was a pleasantly sunny day when we sat outside and enjoyed trout on a creamy risotto with courgette cream. The second day by contrast was grey and wet so we went inside and were surprised to... read more

This one is next door to a restaurant recommended by R Steves. We liked the looks of this place and were rewarded with good food, quiet but active enough to be interesting, and good suggestions from the waitress.

Stumbled upon this restaurant during a solo shopping session in Annecy. Went for the couscous, which was divine. Generous portion with huge amounts of meat - large chunk of kofta, big merguez sausage, nice helping of stewed lamb and a chicken leg. Everything wonderfully seasoned, the best couscous I have had in ages, and the best ever in a European-style... More

We were recommended this small restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel and gave it a go for an evening meal. The waiter did not speak a lot of English - why should he, but we were made welcome and were obviously the only English speakers in at the time. We chose a fish dish and a beef dish and... More

We ate lunch and had a full meal after traveling twenty four hours. We all had some type of fish and it was very light and seasoned very well. The service was very good and the owner was very helpful to non French speaking Americans. The outdoor dining was very enjoyable. Would recommend it.

We wandered up Rue de Paquier, and stopped here for a wine or two in the afternoon, basking in the sun. We met the very owner and checked out the menu for dinner that night. After struggling with a good meal in Paris (tried many recommended on TA), this was a suprise. Settled on tuna and avocado wrapped in puff... More

We ate here on our 2 nights in Annecy. The food is unique and eclectic, a tagine, a couscous dish for example along with classic French dishes. The seafood I had was perfectly cooked from salmon to shrimp to scallops. The food was subtle and flavorful (wonderful fresh herbs in some dishes) without being over rich or salty. There is... More

Our french friend in Annecy took us here for lunch. The menu options are great, all sorts of meat and fish. I had a chicken curry and my husband and our friend had a veal dish that was just delicious. The prices are higher than what we would normally spend but the quality of food was excellent.
