“SPEEDY WAITER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is a great place for an excellent value meal, especially recommend the set menu.
The speed at which the waiter works might leave you with a headache!!! but he is fun to watch.
Must book in advance as very popular .

“Wonderful ambience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

A late afternoon choice for evening dinner having just come down from the pistes and feeling too tired to cook, and what a little gem! Quaint and cosy with Maurice (wonderful gruff voice) waiting on everyone, taking orders by memory, and serving delicious food. Filet mignon was my choice and it was excellent. Sadly having eaten well at lunch time, none of us were that hungry and so did not stay for desserts. Well worth a visit.

“Tartiflette heaven.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Eaten here many times - yes the waiter is a whirlwind of frenetic energy - yes it can be busy and feel a bit crowded - BUT the tartiflette is amazing and never fails. On this visit the service was excellent and friendly. For a restaurant in a ski resort in France it was also good value. Happy days!

“Chaotic atmosphere but good Savoyarde dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We've eaten here a few times and tried to get in the other evening without luck -- it was a Friday night in high season, so we expected difficulties. Every time we've gone it has been chaotic service -- lots of running around but not much actually being delivered to tables without multiple requests. The fondues were very nice as was the tartiflette, just don't expect to relax and enjoy the atmosphere and service.
