Has been one of the most consistent and dependable places to eat in all of the old town. Vincent, the owner is an excellent host and has, in the many years we have been coming to Annecy become like family. The food is fantastic, the beers are true Belgian taps, the front is in the best part of the old... More

Lovely restaurant – delicious food and excellent wait staff. The restaurant has a nice variety of traditional dishes from the region (perch, fondue, meats. . . ) and also a large selection of drinks. The restaurant also has many unique, interesting artifacts. I tried the traditional tartiflette - it was outstanding and a generous portion. My husband took the waiter’s... More

Food here was good. Only thing that disappointed me we were not given the wifi password for some reason. Just declined having wifi. Had to break the password. But food was good quality and service wasnt bad as well. Location is very good - right in the centre.

Loved this little spot! I had the tartiflette and salad, my daughter had the large vegetarian salad. It was delicious. Her salad was huge with a great variety of fruits and vegetables. My salad was delicious with a kind of mustard vinaigrette. The tartiflette was creamy, rich, and hit the spot in a cool rainy day.

Went there a couple of nights ago with three colleagues. Two colleagues did not feel like eating a whole portion and wanted to share a fish in two, but the host did not allow them saying that each seat has to order a full portion (and did so in a pretty rude way as well). We were tired and hungry... More

I was there twice, why change when the first time it's really good? We have stayed in the balcony facing the Canale, the employes are very nice, and the food was delicious, if you like potatoes and melted cheese try their tartiflette, and for desert the "mi cuit" au chocolat.

The Mussells were a must on the menu. Also the goats cheese salad. Saw Locke meals delivered all around us. Definitely a great place to eat.

Both employees were very friendly, making a small family lunch to be even better. The food was well cooked but needed a little more seasoning.
