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...

A bit cramped, but very tasty, hearty Savoyard food. The galettes are great, and there are many more choices - everything looked delicious! It gets crowded, so best to make reservations.

Friendly service and good Savoyard cuisine, all reasonably priced, particularly the wine. Loved the cuckoo clocks!

We choosed this place on New Year's Eve and it gave us what we expected, very delicious dishes. The only minor problem was that they did not have an English Menu, but this gave us a chance to met a very friendly French couple sitting next to us and speaking English.

French through and through, small and inviting, quality French menu, don't bother if you simply want English food. We will visit again.

Along with almost every restaurant in St. Gervais, this place specialises in Savoyarde food - variations on melted cheese, potatoes, and cold meats. However, it also does a range of pancakes, both savoury for your main course (Gallette) and sweet for desert (crepes), which thus offers rather more variety than the other restaurants in town. Food was very tasty; prices... More
