I just came back from that hotel, it's a terrible interior design and decoration! Staff was very unfriendly, rude. Especially in restaurant Les Cygnes, the waiter was completely nuts, when I ordered lactose free food, he brought me dish fool of cream with creamy souse, when I mentioned that there is a cream in the food, he answered: There is...

Wonderful gourmet food, sophisticated casual dining under the stars. Watching the sailboat in the sunset while the waiters attended to a lovely dinner. It's a little bit outside of the middle of town but worth the walk or drive!

I was sat in the dining room for 20 minutes before a waiter brought me a menu. During that time the kitchen closed after I had made sure that I would be there on time. A meal was flatly refused , being a hotel resident made no difference.

My husband and I travelled for 3 weeks in France and found this restaurant charming and delightful. It was my favorite meal on our 3 week trip from the service to the excellent food. The setting is idyllic- right on the lake with grape trees surrounding you and umbrellas over the top on the patio in case of rain. The... More

This is about as French as French can be so in return for an idyllic location on the lake and excellent food you will have to accept some Gallic idiosyncrasies such as disorganised service. The setting is simply stunning particularly in the evening at sunset. The food is very good and the desserts in particular are imaginative. Wine is a... More

We decided to eat in the restaurant rather than walk into Evian . In fairness , the meal comprised generous portions and some well - executed cooking . But by the time you've waited an hour for the starter to arrive you've rather lost interest . Further delays with subsequent courses . Service in the restaurant was genial but slow... More

My wife and I were entertained to lunch in this restaurant in Evian by two friends who have a chalet in the Alps and who had been here a number times. We dined on the outside terrace and our friends recommended the menu du jour which they had enjoyed before. It was tremendous value at €18 with all three courses... More

Les Cygnes is a delightful hotel and restaurant right on the lakeshore in Grande Rives on the outskirts of Evian les Bains. Furnishings and decor have an early 20th century traditional feel, with a predominance of red. The food is classic French country cuisine and the service is attentive and efficient but never overbearing. Our party was particularly impressed by... More

Beautifully decorated inside - it's ornate so don't look for modern furnishings- with a lovely terrace outside for the summer months, Les Cignes is an absolute treat. Evian does not have a fantastic choice or restaurants to eat at, fortunately Les Cignes is on hand. This is a traditionally French, small, hotel with a very personal touch. We ate at... More

The restaurant at Les Cygnes is highly recommended. The restaurant's decor, whilst evidently not to everyone's taste is I consider beautiful. The dining room has an ambiance to it created by the furnishings. The menu comprises the typical choice of selecting from a fixed price selection from quite modestly priced to a price which is perhaps quite expensive or alternatively... More
