Well worth the winding drive up to the top of Col de Forclaz to this little chalet which boasts amazing views of the lake and mountains. So peaceful apart from the tinkling cow bells. The terrace only had a few people having coffee but we...More

Lovely situation with panoramic views of Annecy and Doussard. We chose this restaurant to get away from the more congested establishments at Col de la Forclaz. Unfortunately we found it was quiet for a reason; the service is glacial in speed, the menu is minimalist....More

We have been here before and on visiting the area again had to return. This is true mountain fair at its best. They do raclette and brasero, but my favourite is definitely the tartiflette! And the views are stunning! Would definitely recommend ...

We ate here twice during a two week stay in Annecy. The staff were really friendly, the food was good & the view was perfect! Would definitely recommend. As an aside, my daughter is a coeliac & was able to eat gluten free here.

The drive to this place is one of the most fascinating drive you can encounter in a Annecy. It's an uphill drive of about half an hour from Imperial Palace. The drive is nothing short of splendid, which makes the trip to Chalet La Pricas...More

Try traditional mountain food in the brasserie section. Wonderful cosy atmosphere, great fondue savoyard and the best view of the region.

If you go to this place, it would be to admire the breathtaking view. Though unfortunately, the restaurant wouldn't serve food outside due to the low temperatures. I ordered the raclette and was very disappointed, the cheese was tasteless and very bland. Other guests enjoyed...More
