My french is quite poor and the waiting staff just got by in english, but still they managed to throw a few jokes and made the evening quite pleasant. Make sure you reserve... read more

Went here with a group of friends, booked in advance due to reviews on trip advisor. It is not in the hub of the resort but worth finding it. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the food delicious. We ordered cheese fondue, tartiflette, meat fondue and piraude between 8 of us. All tasted amazing and came with very yummy salad...

As a non-French speaker, I would never have gone to this restaurant if it wasn't for my French friend. So glad I did, and I would recommend it to all. The food was lovely. We had the duck/beef and, with that, had a personal grill on the table with us. The cuts of meat were fantastic. The service was great... More

Besides the quality, also the quantity is good. The... More

A group of six had a great meal here, with a raclette, steaks and tartiflette. Everyone enjoyed it, decent house red wine too. Will revisit next time for sure.
