About
Pierre Maillet’s goal, as head chef of our two star restaurant, is to conserve the taste of the produce, respect texture, gently combine things and not spoil them by trying to over-enhance them. Having taken over from his father-in-law, Pierre Carrier, he has upheld the restaurant’s traditions by proposing a subtle, modern and natural cuisine, inspired by the surrounding area. A cuisine spanning 5 generations that is influenced by the treasures of the French/Italian Alps : Char and Fera from Lake Léman, snails from the Mont Blanc region, sweetbreads, Dombes duckling, Bresse poulard and local cheese, pork and lamb….Dishes subtly enhanced by the herb garden, overseen by Pierre Carrier: wood sorrel,

One of the best restaurants you can find. The location is great and the service impeccable. The food exhibits strong variety and always a top quality. Even the sommelier has been able to compensate the departure of Maitre Christian Martray.
