We had ordered a well done, so the first time we ask to re do it for well done, they just placed it in the microwave. The. It came back the second time and it... More

Although this restaurant is a good copy of the Belgian brasserie (pub), it is not only focused on Belgian menus. International and regional choices are widely available even though some typical Belgian meals are also served. Focus is on beers lowering the choice of wines especially half bottles. We received a 2010 Chignin Bergeron half bottle which was a little... More

We arrived at 9.15 for our table that we had booked for between 9 and 9.30 to be advised we would have to wait for another 30 to 40 minutes. On challenging this and requesting another table, not on the terrace if necessary, the proprietor seemed to think we were being unreasonable and kept showing us the time on his... More

Went to the place to have lunch on the terrace. As there was no service in sight and all tables besides one were empty we sat down at an empty but not cleaned up table (they were all not cleaned up) and looked out for the waiter. When he came he didn't even say hello just stood there and starred... More

we sat down at a table which hasn't been cleaned up.The waiter said" you wait until this table is cleaned , than you ask me and than you may sit down" we thought he was joking. NO! He came back and told us to stand up. We walked away. A waiter educating his customers. Very arrogant.

Liked the vibe of this place, bit like an old English pub - had the seafood salad and it was very tasty, the best smoked salmon I have eaten - for a casual night out that won't break the bank I recommend L'Estaminet.

Had lunch here recently and was recommended by a friend living in Annecy and it was really worth going there. The food is great and the people are very nice, especially the owner who was very kind and helpful. It can be crowded during weekends, especially brunch/lunch time and better reserve a table in advance. Try their signature dessert if... More

We have been here a few times now and every time we go we are never disappointed. The food here is great and there is a big variety, from muscles, to steak, to fish! The staff here are very friendly and a lot of fun. I highly recommend L'Estaminet to those looking for a nice restaurant in old Annecy.

Saturday evening, we had to kill some time before going to the restaurant so we picked L'Estaminet for a glass (or two) of wine. I cant say if the food is good or bad cause we didnt eat there but certainly the meat dishes looked really really good- plates of thick steaks and baked potatoes kept passing next to us... More

We were staying at the Hotel Alexander where the owner very kindly recommended some restaurants close by. One of these was the L'Estaminet. The weather was being kind so we sat outside and enjoyed a glass of local wine before eating. My wif had the local fish (from the lake) which she said was delicious. I had half of Reblachon... More
