“Lovely meal in charming ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Food was delicious, especially the lamb shank cooked in garlic. Large portions, friendly staff and our waiter spoke excellent English. Very cosy, rustic, traditional decor inside with a roaring log fire. An excellent meal and evening!

“Could've been better for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

We were all excited to eat at L'Ancolie following reading favourable reviews and checking the menu. We dined on our last night in La Rosiere and were looking forward to a nice meal to conclude a pleasant trip, however the meal did not live up to expectations.

There were six diners in our party and of the six dishes we ordered three meat dishes were cold. My friend ordered filet steak but it was extremely tough and had lots of gristle - it didn't look like filet steak at all and was sent back. Another dish was supposed to come with rice but was presented with pasta instead. We ordered a 2007 Crozes De Hermitage but were given a 2010 bottle that wasn't very nice (we were still charged for the 2007). Overall could've been a lot better for the price.

“Expensive mistake”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

We can only guess that the chef did not turn up.
Long wait, poor quality almost cold food, not as selected from menu.Probably bought in, but we shall never know. No attempt to apologise or explain the problem. Very unprofessional.
