Mais quelle ambiance ...

Loved it. We were two the three other tables habitated between 18 to 24 people, each one eating like a Darfur refugee with big plates. Local kitchen- Fondue, smoked pig etc.. Delicious.

Following recommendations from friends in the Jura region and Trip Advisor reviews, I planned my dad's 80th family lunch at La Finette. Our party selected local dishes of Salade Franc Comtoise for starter and a variety of chicken or beef with "morilles" and vin jaune. My partner and I shared a "fondue", melted Comté cheese one picks up with bread;... More

Nice interior, staff very friendly. Food is good and priced well. Great experience. Only one negative point : they have many tables, so waiting time is slightly long.

We came here with our family for out first night out on our vacation in Jura. The salads were excellent and very filling. Really nice atmosphere on the terrace with welcoming wait staff.

This restaurant was a little out of town so a car would be an advantage. We went for lunch and both had the Poulet. The servings were large with a rich vin jaune sauce. Our table was a little tight which perhaps reflected it also being a tavern. The service was good. There is parking in the back. Not fine... More

Liked this restaurant, which was quite large but felt cosy. It concentrates on local specialities and offers good value. Well-trained, pleasant waiting staff. La Finette aperitif and the onion soup were both of particularly good quality.

Sorry but we don't call this cooking. Don't try ti order a menu here, you simply can't eat it, too much and no quality. I can't understand why this place was so filled up with people. Our steak was 4 mm thick, and they ask how you want it prepared?! Saignant, yeah right... The wines were of poor quality too.... More

Virtually the only place open in the Arbois in the evening (besides one or two more expensive places), La Finette is generally a busy place. Last week I could not get in (had no reservation) It's a big restaurant, decorated in semi-log cabin style, a bit artificial, but still cosy. I had a local fine meats starter, which was pretty...

We ate here while we were driving back to Switzerland and we wanted to try Fondue. It was good quality, nicely presented and very tasty. Fondue was complemented with Salad and portion of meat. Waiter/waitress were friendly and everything was presented nicely.

We really wanted a more relaxed meal on our last night in Arbois and this was just what the doctor ordered. Wish I had had the appetite to have a fondu!! Looked and smelled amazing. Nice, simple food at a good price. The waitress was lovely and really friendly. Best 'café gourmand' of our holiday.
