It is always a pleasure to eat at Contresens. The food is excellent and the prices are very decent taking into account that the owner has another 2-Michelin star restaurant in Annecy. The ABCD concept is very pleasant as it gives you flexibility and you chose based on how hungry you are. You need to book beforehand even for a... More

Having been lost finding our hotel we finally were ready for dinner about nine thirty at night. Contresens was around the corner. We were close to kitchen-closing time but we were quickly attended to. Food was very good and authentic to the region. Worth a repeat visit.

The cooking is more than average and the service is definitely a problem: snotty waiters all along. There are much better choices in Annecy.

It is the third time I have visited this restaurant. The first time was very nice (service,food,...). The second time, the service was quite slow but food was still nice. The third time was a disaster! Service extremely slow (I am very patient but 45 min between the order and the starter, then another 25 min betwen the starter and... More

I have been in France for 10 days and it has been the best meal I have eaten by far. Great quality for the money. My favourite was the tartlet entrée with several varieties of radish, fresh and pickled. I was eating alone, and the staff were very welcoming and helpful.

Contresens is an excellent choice for casual dining in Annecy but do book for a table. The menu is simple once you understand the ABCD format. Essentially as you eat more each dish becomes a little cheaper but even at full cost the price is very reasonable for the quality.
