First let me tell you my prejudices. I take no pleasure in restaurants that feel they simply have to serve something totally 'different' by combining unexpected ingredients however ill advised. Nor am I impressed by presentation that comprises decoration plus sauce in miniscule dots all at the expense of superb taste. And it is many years since I have come... More

Having just dined at some of the highly regarded restaurants in Milan, I can safely say that Lou Bequet would rate highly wherever it was located, and it is no surprise it rates as #1 in the Cogne area. The specials list today was at least as long as the normal menu and carefully explained (translated) by the multilingual and... More

I had read about Lou Bechet on Tripadvisor; and our host at Les Trompeurs referred my husband and me to it, telling us that it was his favorite restaurant. Indeed, we saw him and his family there! The restaurant's location, with a view over the valley, is spectacular--and the view is at least matched by the cuisine! Not only are... More

We have enjoyed everything in this restaurant very easy to find on main road from Aosta to Cogne in the small village of Cretaz. The decoration is simple and elegant following the best alpine style. Background music was very welcoming as well as all staff members. Home made breads were really a must, served warm and fragrant. Delicious starter with... More

After a two year intermezzo, we recently dined at the Becquet two times and we must say: although difficult the cuisine has become even better. The style has traditional Aosta-influences but remains creative and stylish. The wine list is nice and very reasonably priced. The staff is friendly. Good children's choices also. Well worth a detour, even coming from the... More

Our family of 7 enjoyed a great evening meal at Lou Bequet. We walked the short distance (around a mile) from our B & B in Cogne to Cretaz. The menu featured local foods. We enjoyed several courses and wine. We all agreed that this restaurant was one of the best we enjoyed on our trip to Northern Italy.

The place is very cosy, we had to take the car because it was a 20 minutes walk from the centre of Cogne, but it totally worth it! The staff was great, we had a wonderful meal for a good price and the wine list was very good too! I would definitely come back!

I've tasted the greatest steak in my life there. The owner told, that the meat is from the Ireland and there is no such tender meat produced in Italy. So next journey will be to the Ireland )) We also had some free grappa and some free wine-like drinks from the owner/chef (probably because we stayed for way too long))
