Lovely views, service not great

We luckily managed to get a table on the balcony over the river which has some gorgeous views of Annecy. The restaurant was recommended by locals for doing good local dishes. The food was lovely but the service was slightly disappointing as the waitress was stand-offish. Nevertheless, we would go... read more

Good food, wide choice, value for money. A multitude of drawings, photos, funny proverbs inside this quaint bar/restaurant. Numerous celebrities have been to this place. Delicious draught beers as well as small dishes and appetizing cold platters to accompany your drinks. Super atmosphere. If you speak French, you'll find that personnel is real jovial, with a good sense of humour,... More

I had my first dinner in Annecy in L'estaminet, the food here was amazing, waiters were very chill and friendly, the atmosphere here was very comfy. I highle recommend this restaurant for friends gathering or couple casual night out. The foie gras with duck breast and entrecôte is a must. 這裏菜好吃服務也好,Annecy 必吃。鵝肝跟牛排一定要點,非常好吃。

If you can get a table on the back terrace, then it is one of the best spot in Annecy! The food is good and the service is nice

Great food, great staff, great atmosphere! The moules aka mussels are amazing here, best I've ever had. Had one of our best meals in France here, highly suggest it for a delicious meal and close proximity to good people watching!

Came in today as a party of 5. They were clearly busy when we arrived, so things took a while to get moving. Three of us had mussels, and we were underwhelmed. Sauce was bland, mussels were overcooked and had appeared to be sitting around a bit before they got to us. The lamb dish was tastier. We had to... More

Cool place with easy going efficient staff. Really enjoyed eating here esp salmon salad. Always busy and people seem to stay for a long time. Seating available inside too if there's none left outside. Our accomodation host recommends the dessert menu too.

The four of us had a great lunch in this restaurant. Sausages with potatoes, duck, moules and salad - all equally delicious and well presented. It's hearty food served in generous portions with tables packed together. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We'd all go again!

We dined at L'Estaminet - recommended by our B+B (La Ferme du Champ Pelaz in Thusy, just outside Annecy) - on a Saturday night in early May 2013. The food was what you would expect from a good tavern - traditional fare, good quality produce, well cooked and not too badly priced. The service was friendly and we really enjoyed... More
