“Cozy and tiny eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Cozy ambient, fireplace, just a few tables, booking is highly advisable. Basically a mountain shack, with a couple of rooms for the night, if needed. Menu varies, with interesting interpretations of regional flavors, and good choice of wines. Recommended. The only flaw was the entrecote: the meat was thin and rather chewy and nervous; other than that, I would give it another try.

“Absolutely charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

We chanced upon this little gem on a sunny lunchtime in February, and what a find.
I couldn't believe it hadn't already been reviewed on Tripadvisor, as it deserves to be better known.
It looked like a cute little chalet beside the road, in a sunny spot. There were a lot of cars parked outside. we took a chance, parked and went in. The restaurant was full inside, but we were offered an outside table, in the glorious sunshine, with an amazing view of the surrounding mountains.
The young waitress was the perfect hostess, friendly and efficient. Everything was lovely, even the crockery and cutlery, which i would never ordinarily notice.
But of course, as with every restaurant, the food has to be be up to scratch, and this place surpassed itself. I could rave on and on.
Basically its a simple Auberge, not pretentious in any way, just charming. The best meal we've had on our extended trip to France.
