Our friends recommended this restaurant and we were happy to be the guests thereof. The fondue menu is not intensive, but very tasty. If you wish to try Savoi food then this place is the must)))

We ate at the tables outside but make sure you have a good look inside as the place is packed full of interesting items, from a Polar Bear to Extremely Old wooden Skiis! we had very traditional Mountain Fare, a large pot of Hock and Stew washed down with the local Blonde Mont-Blanc Beer, the waitress was charming and dressed...

Warm, vibrant, convivial, welcoming, and fun are some adjectives that spring to mind. Add to that good food and perfect service in a superbly decorated venue and all for very good value. Definitely to be recommended.
