A return to a favored restaurant from years gone by with three guests was disappointing in many ways - facility was drab (no charm), table settings ordinary, service rough with food brought to wrong person, spills that were ignored and generally unimpressive. Food was good...More

We took a private party upstairs with some great views over the lake. Quality wines and superb menu. The lamb was very memorable. Top service.

It is very nice to confirm the reputation of a restaurant with Michelin distinction. All selected courses were of unique value. Soles meunières & turbot are strongly recommended.

While the view on the lake is magnificent, the service is quite disappointing. Your orders are poorly met and waiters are very arrogant.

What more to ask for? A beautiful terrace with some view of the lake (less so than from the restaurant, but still). Good cuisine based on excellent products. Discrete and efficient service. A truly fine address.
