It's a mix bag really. Some plates were ok, others not at all. Risotto, tomato soup, pasta and veal were all flavorless. Very pricy for the quality on offer. Service is also very grim and unhelpful. Make sure you tell them how much water you exactly want, they'll otherwise charge you for water bottles they open without your permission.

The food at this restaurant is good but the atmosphere is a bit dull. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed the asparagus risotto with black truffle. Good service by the wait staff but we both commented that the restaurant has no atmosphere. The restaurant was half full so perhaps it is more lively & fun on busy nights. Too quiet.... More

La Bagatelle offers excellent gourmet food with prompt, thoughtful service. Servings were like pieces of art and so tasty. On a sunny day lunch at terrace was beautiful place to lunch, an experience especially when small air jet flew over.

Some restaurants are known for food, and some for service. This one is also for the view. Superb food, awesome views and best staff ever. Highly recommend.

I've been here many times in winter, but this was my first summer visit. Beautiful view from the outside terrace- excellent service as always and delicious food. This is old world charm at it's best.

We loved the setting; a beautiful old chalet that has a lovely terrace covered in umbrellas so you can enjoy the views without intense direct sun. The food is exceptional; a beautiful meal experience and great choices. However, it's expensive for what it is. You're paying for excellent service, which I believe is worth paying for, but our meal was... More

We had a most enjoyable meal at this charming restaurant. The ambiance is classic mountain chalet-style and the staff is most welcoming and professional. The menu is traditional classic with dishes comprised of the finest ingredients. We started with a a dozen Belon oysters which were plump and delicious and accompanied by an excellent glass of French chardonney.. We then... More
