Having visited the lovely Land Art exhibition down the street, we decided to give this funky looking "snack" a try. Warm welcome, cool playlist, excellent menu with a variety of homemade daily specials. All four of us opted for the Tourte Montagnarde which we found to be absolutely delicious. We topped off our lunch with the Café Gourmand and among... More

I had a fantastic piece of local lamb and we ordered the chocolate fondue at the same time. It came with brilliant fresh fruit - the only problem was the huge portions! Great service and a must if you are in the town.

My wife and I were passing through town and stopped into this town for a light lunch. We were welcomed into the restaurant by a very energetic and enthusiastic waiter who was obviously proud of his restaurant, town and his local produce. He went to great lengths to explain the menu (in English for us) and all of the local... More

We were here in March 2015 and enjoyed it so much we booked in for the first night of our January 2016 trip. We got a table on the ground floor this time, great atmosphere! We both shared the basic cheese fondu and a demi carafe of the house red, the food was very tasty and the wine was perfectly... More

Great friendly people and a stonking fondue. Delicious salads with it and jacket baked potatoes with herbs for the fondue. They did a vegetarian option with some extra things and no meat...delicious. Great desserts and we liked the Chardonnay which was really very tasty. Au revour et à bientôt!

I was going to say the only upside was its food, but then I found some plastic in my dish. The plat du jour was already sold out while the restaurant was still rather empty: trying to lure customers with tasty suggestions they don't serve. The waiter was quite pushy to make us order the most expensive dishes paying no... More

My wife and I visited this small place for lunch and had very nice menu at a reasonable price EUR 16. Try also the house wine Rosé at EUR6 for ½l. Very local and good service. We can recommend.

We shared a cheese fondu, we had a choice of about 8 different cheese mixes never mind the meat fondu. It came with loads of bread and a salad, charcuterie and potatoes. We both have good appetites and we struggled to finish, we had a bottle of Chardonnay and it was lovely €15, worth the extra. I definitely recommend this... More

We both had Tartiflettes which we enjoyed. The service was good but I had a glass of house red which gave me a headache the next day. Reasonably priced for the area.
