Delicious lunch with immaculate presentation

We booked lunch at Le Bois Joli in part because of the panoramic view across to the Alps; unfortunately on that count we were disappointed, as a thick fog closed in. However, this did not spoil our meal, which was excellent. The cuisine is traditional French: I had escargots to start followed by... read more

As the temperatures soared to almost 15 degrees on a Saturday in January, I took a quick look at the mountains from the top of the ski lift at Crozet - deserted as there was little snow - and then proceeded to le Bois Joli. The sun was peeping through the clouds and the view across Geneva towards the Alps... More

Restaurant has great view for Geneve and Mont Blanc, seems to be popular (means quite crowded on Tuesday evening), but our food was average at best. Fondue savoiarde was quite good, but chicken was overcooked and hard. The service was quite slow - they kept forgetting about as, we had to remind that we are waiting for some dishes, even... More

A restaurant with very good foods quality and good views of the Mont-Blanc. Good option for lunch/dinner with friends or couples. The price is very similar than other restaurants around Crozet, Saint-Genis Poully, Ferney-Voltaire. In July 2014, the price of the menu was 28€ per person. The menu was: Ocean salade, entrecot (steak with chips and salade) and chocolate cake,... More

Have eaten here three times in febrary 2014. And twice in December. 2013 Each time it was a positive experience. The food is not haute cuisine but aside from that the food is excellent. Great tasting dishes, plenty of it and good service. The view is spectacular and climbing out of the fog filled valley into the brilliant sunshine is... More

This restaurant is in a small hotel in Crozet about 5 miles from the Swiss border. It is situated a little up the hillside into the Jura so the view is spectacular. The food is very good with prices to match. Best to go for lunch on a clear day and sit on the terrace with a view of Lac... More

I have been twice in two weeks. The first time I had the duck, which was well prepared and served, while the second I had the chicken, which instead was hard and a bit overcooked. It might be better when not too crowded.
