nice little place

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

We enjoyed our meal here so much that we returned for another dinner. I had mussels royale one night, which was delicious - a large portion of mussels with langoustines and scallops. The next time, I had cassoulet de saint jacques - the scallops were perfectly cooked and the sauce was flavoursome. The other diners had a duck dish, a... More

We came to L'Estaminet based on the good reviews we see and are not disappointed. We arrived at 5pm and was told that they are not serving dinner until 7pm. So we just grabbed a table outside and had some beer and dessert. It is a great place for people watching and enjoying the street music. The prices are reasonable... More

We came here for lunch having seen how busy and popular it seemed the previous evening. On arrival, we requested a table for four, to which the waitress responded negatively, saying she could only get us a table for two (this despite the fact there were tables available that could be joined, and the fact there were other tables of...
