A little gem......

Although we have passed this restaurant many times in the past, we should not have! Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers all found something to suit in this typical Haute Savoie restaurant. The menu is small as is the premises. The owner was welcoming and efficient and the food was delicious. We... read more

Having enjoyed countless meals in this wonderful little restaurant we returned to Samoens again this year to ski and as family tradition dictates, made our regular pilgrimage to see Fred and his chef wife at Au Rendez Vous for a much anticipated slap-up meal. We were somewhat taken aback when we got to the restaurant as we discovered it had... More

I write this with a heavy heart. This is a lovely small eating house run by a husband and wife team. There is always a very warm welcome. But here comes the problem. I recently visited September 2014. The welcome was as good as ever, but some items had been crossed off the menu and the one my wife chose... More

Well worth checking this husband and wife team out. A small but charming restaurant with a relatively small menu. The service is low key and fabulous, its an evening experience that represents really good value for money and perhaps the most important element, the food is truly excellent. My wife particularly enjoyed the lamb shank and mash when she opted... More

As a family of four we booked a table for New Years Eve for the fixed menu gourmet evening. We had an absolute feast over the whole evening which lasted from 8pm until past midnight. As usual the service and friendliness from the host was excellent. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience at our family favourite restaurant in... More

This place is often open when others are closed. You will not get a better welcome anywhere. Food as usual always excellent and good value. Their chocolate moose is outstanding.

Had lunch here over Easter in the sunshine on the balcony. Food was good and friendly service. We will patronise this place again

A small but charming bistro. Delicious traditional savoyard food. Try the baked cheese box or fondue. Daily specials also great.

We dined as a family of four on Easter Monday having the lamb shank & mashed potato which was lovely. All swilled down with an excellent savioe rouge. The service is always good. We have booked again for Friday night. We like it

Our favourite restaurant in Samoens. Always a warm welcome from Fred, who seems to know almost all his clients personally - or at least he makes you feel that way! And the food is excellent - a mixture of typical mountain fare, well prepared, and a few specials for variation when you get tired of Tartiflette and Raclette.... Best to... More
