The food is ambivalent: the quality of the used products is very good, the cooking as it should be, but the dishes are almost tasteless. Vegetables and fish are prepared without salt, herbs or spices. Only the meat dishes had a kind of (dull) taste. Desserts also without any creativity with the worst icecream we had for years. All the... More

Dear Guest, We regret reading your disatisfaction. Our cuisine is indeed prepared with the best local seasonal fresh products, cooked with as you mention little salt due to dietary expectations of our guests today. We display salt and Pepper on the table for our guest who like saltier taste. The spices are proposed in a "condiment" aside to allow our... More

We've been invited to attend a wedding at Chateau Coudree. First of all, the location is great, at lac léman. We had the wedding reception / Cocktail in the beautiful garden, the athmosphere there is great. snacks being offered were ok (missing some more spices and herbs - but tastes are different), and there was enough champagne.

Inventive food, well presented. Unusually for France, spice was involved as opposed to only herbs. Good use of local ingredients like lake fish and quality meat, together with a good variety of vegetables, all cooked to perfection. Deserts are particularly good. If you arrive early, good luck with trying to locate a barman.
