The food was simply perfect. When my friend and I came there we both weren't hungry but we wanted to visit this restaurant and try its dishes. That's why I had only fish and my friend decided to order a 32€ menu consisting of a starter(can't recall what was exactly but was delicious), pork, cheese and cake. Gaultier, a waiter... More

The name Chineur apparently means someone who seeks out old interesting things - antiques for example - and the restaurant prides itself in finding or developing interesting dishes often based on old recipes. So when we were there the menu offered snails cooked in a mushroom sauce, Jerusalem artichoke soup, roasted bone marrow, chicken and cheese quenelles (the ones often... More

Great location to explore the historical center. The "Menu du jour" (17€ for a 3-course lunch) is an excellent deal. The food is quite original and a bit sophisticated. The wine list is short and rather expensive, but they have decent wine by the glass. Frendly and attentive staff.

Friendly and helpful service. Cosy (perhaps a little cramped, but it did not matter), relaxed and characterful. Interesting and original menu with dishes all prepared to a very high standard. Some fail safe options also for the less adventurous.

It can be hard to find a table at a decent restaurant in Annecy on a Saturday night without a reservation, so we ended up at Les Chineurs by luck and trusting our instincts. The food consists mostly of classics, deliciously revisited. I found the service fast and efficient. Prices are not the cheapest but definitely worth it.

I ate at this restaurant on a cold wet Saturday evening on my own. I chose the fillet mignon with foie gras and it was delicious. The service was efficient, perhaps a little too quick and I didn't feel there was much warmth from the staff, they all seemed very busy even though it was very early in the evening... More

I have written dozens of reviews on Tripadvisor, but rarely anything negative, yet this will be the second negative review in Annecy. After our disastrous experience at Sarto, we thought we would try something a bit more upmarket, hence booking at Les Chineurs. When we arrived, the restaurant was empty. We sat down outside, but as it was chilly, asked... More

Great food and great service. I had the set menu. The fish starter was nothing special but the Veal stew was super delicious. My wife had the fish which was also great. Please make sure to book in advance as it gets full very quickly!

We arrived in Annecy in the chaos of a summers Sunday lunchtime, the old town was very busy. We tried our luck here and it was very good food and pleasant service from the staff. I tried the kidneys with mushrooms, peppers, carrots in a material sauce, excellent.

Visited this restaurant on our second night in Annecy and without doubt the best food we've had since arriving in France last week. The foie gras starters were delicious. My son's ordered the fillet mignon with foie gras (you could say the kids have a liking for it!). My partner and I both went for the lamb which was extremely... More
