So welcoming

Imagine a cold, very wet holiday evening. Desire for warmth and good food essential. Found both here. We were made so welcome. The food was basic mountain food but very well prepared. The service was exemplary. Would recommend this to anyone

We had a great meal at this welcoming, friendly alpine restaurant. The food was of good quality and the service was excellent. We ate with our 14 month old son and the waitress could not have been more helpful. A lovely evening all in all.

This place is fine but really, France is supposed to be renowned for good food, and this place is not good enough to survive a week in London. Expect a friendly unpretentious place, average food, and prices that are not too expensive but in my opinion, are a little too high given the basic level of food on offer.

Went here on the basis of T.A. reviews but it did not live up to expectations. Agree with previous reviewer about the pork and the pate starter was not much better. Nice place with good, friendly service but would not go again and agree there is much better food available for this price range even up on the slopes.

What a stunning building. I was surprised by the charm of the space inside, having walked past on a number of occasions. The food was average french fare, but with a price tag of 24€, this felt like poor value in comparison to other restaurants in the town. My salad Savoyard was nice but not special as was the pork...
