“MOUNTAIN TREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

On a chilly August day with intermittant rain showers it really was a treat to arrive for lunch at the Refuge and immediately be made welcome by the staff. No sooner had we sat down than we were presented with plates of picked-that-morning mushrooms in the lightest of batters which were absolutely delicious and set the tone for the rest of our meal which was excellent and very good value. Set in the middle of meadows under La Tournette, the atmosphere at the Refuge is charming and rustic and everything is managed beautifully by Evan and his team.

“Mountain Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

We were staying with friends near Annecy who suggested we might like to go to lunch in a local restaurant. The weather was not too good so we could wile away an hour or two waiting for the sun to shine. How lucky we were to be taken to the Refuge! The delightful owner/chef Evan produced for us one of the best meals we have eaten. The ingredients were all local and the quality sublime - and at the end, we were pleasantly surprised by the the cost. It was excellent value for money. We have have paid much more for meals in fashionable London restaurants which came nowhere near in terms of quality and enjoyment. All in all, tremendous food, lovely staff and a super venue. We will definitely go again when we are in the area!

“Best ever birthday lunch venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Despite all of the wonderful restaurants in Annecy we decided to venture to this special refuge in the mountains just below La Tournette. After a warm welcome by Abby we soaked up the atmosphere surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery as we enjoyed Evan's snail creation and 'reblochonette' complimented by an excellent Rose wine. Not only the best location, but great food and warm hospitality too. We will be back soon...

“The best meal EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Staying in Annecy we were told to go for a special meal at Pre-Verel at the foot of La Tournette. We had the rib of beef (for two to share), dauphinois potatoes and salad. Aside from the fantastic food, the setting is perfect. Stunning views and cow bells chiming in the distance, and full flowery meadows. Made all the morse special as we had climbed La Tournette the day before. This meal was by far one of the best meals we've ever had - very rustic and French. Absolutely recommended for a special trip!
