We booked in advance via email as there were 9 of us and I have seen that the place gets very busy. Table was waiting and as I said the name I'd booked under he owner remembered my first name. Good table, child seat in place and waiting. Service was helpful and fast. Food came quicker than expected as we... More

A good meal here finished off our visit to France. Service was good and friendly. We tried our little bit of French and it was appreciated. Price was fair and we left satisfied I will be back

Needed a break from Xmas market and as we were passing and it looked fairly busy we would give it a go. Excellent food, very large portions which was surprising, the burgers were very tasty indeed. Cannot give you a reason apart from the fact that the food was very tasty but this restaurant was packed and they were turning... More

Food was very good and I think that in ordering the XXL Welsh burger I underestimated the size of it! It came with chips as well so it was no surprise that having finished the burger I could not finish the chips! For dessert I had home made rum and raisin ice cream. The staff were friendly and understood my... More

Went for an evening meal and reminded us of the mountain regions of France, which is what is intended. Melted cheese dishes and skewers galore!

The fact that the waitress hardly spoke and was chewing gum all night says it all. Average over priced food. A waste of money. Go next door for a pizza, much better quality.

We managed to just walk-in and get a table on a Saturday evening. IF you like cheese and fondue then this is a place to try. Basic decor (you don't want table-cloths with all that melted cheese about) but clean and comfy and the food was exactly what we wanted and ordered. Good, honest food and plenty of it. I... More

We went to this restaurant particularly for the raclette. Raclette is a bit like a fondu but with two levels. In the bottom level you melt your cheese in your own personal tray, while on the top you cook your meats and vegetables. Everything is made to order and you don't have to worry about food falling into the cheese.... More

Well if you like raclette you will be in for a treat. We ate here on a busy Friday. Service was excellent and the food even better. Very reasonably priced. Three course meal with an aperitif and a bottle of wine for about €60. Savoie style food that I've not enjoyed since skiing in Tignes. Definitely recommend.

Small bustling restaurant featuring Savoyard food, wine & beer located right on the Grand Place. Fairly authentic food, reasonable prices, busy even in mid-week
