Off piste

Difficult access by off piste "blue" with significant uphill section for last 50m... you will need a drink once you get there! Salad starters were more than enough for lunch, very welcoming log fire and pleasant staff #middleofnowhere

We found this place by accident. It's a little off track but didn't seem to matter as it was 3/4 full already. Food excellent, choice excellent and great value for money

Superb location and very good food. Perfect place to recover after hiking though it is a little difficult to restart again. The restaurant is nicely located next to a lake with of course fantastic scenery. The food was really good hearty mountain food and the service was very friendly.

Nice enough location but overpriced for what you get.. Go to the lakes up there but eat in town as you will find more choice and better value for your money.. Or just picnic next to the lakes..

First the food: traditionnal and regional french dishes, freshly cooked, beautiful plates, generous portions. We were 4 and were all satisfied. Second the service: the woman was SO friendly, quick and efficient. She offered us in the end the Genepi Third the location: located not to high in the mountain, you can easily reach it. The terrasse is wonderful when... More
