“Delicious food in a cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

L'Auberge des Vieux-Bois has been renovated in an alpine-chalet style, giving it a very cosy atmosphere. The service is attentive and friendly, and the menu outstanding for the price. There is a 3 course menu for lunch during the week including beverages for 13,50 euros, you can't beat that! We tried both other menus (22 and 30 euros) and the food and presentation on the plates were a treat. The portions are very generous, too, with lots of greens and veggies. Parking is easy, and there are playgrounds for the kids.
Reservation is highly advised!

“A really great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Having eaten at this remodeled restaurant several times this year, I can honestly say it goes from strength to strength. The young owners have transformed l'Auberge du Vieux Bois into a pine-clad country delight, serving good wholesome meals at reasonable prices -one can't say that about many other restaurants in this area. Their success means you definitely have to reserve most evenings, but especially Fridays and Saturdays. The menu remains interesting and varied and the desserts are to die for. A warm, friendly atmosphere prevails. Long may it reign!

“Great renovation of an older Auberge !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Diverse offering reasonably priced. The set menu is a real deal !
We loved the presentation on modern plates, very nice food and wine at a fair price.
Hope it will stay the same.

Do reserve on a Monday night !
