Just across the border from Switzerland, this is a typical Alpine locale. We arrived on Sunday evening without a booking and were accommodated straight away at a table for 5. The atmosphere was real fun, alpine style and Fondue bubbling away at several tables. We had to have the fondue, and it was very good. My wife, our granddaughter and son all had burgers, they would not have been my choice but they were really home made and enjoyed. We recommend this restaurant for an informal meal, but apparently on busy days it is necessary to reserve a table.

Great burgers. Burger with foie gras. Mmm. Worth every cent. Never had a burger presented as nice as this. Very good service too

For sure.... in "Les rousses" this restaurant was the most visible because of its outside decoration. Even more inside, almost perfectly decorated from the bar to the toilets. The menu sounded great with the denomination of the plates. And the same when you had them in front of you.
But a real disappointment when tasting the plates. Nothing exceptional honestly. Yes it was all right but that its.
Service: A BIG MINUS ! it took them 1 hour to serve us! their excuse was they were full. Sorry to say but any restaurant calculate this and should be enough to serve, enough to handle the plates in the kitchen !!! so no way, no excuse for this. Luckily they had serve the kids so we could handle them while waiting for our plates. example: "entrée" was a foie gras... .do not tell me it takes an hour to have a foie gras ????? or it means they had to kill the goose ??? :)...
No smiles....ok was the 26 of decembre but is this an excuse for a restaurant looking to be fashioned style?
Price: was all right but the same I think a bit expensive for the result. It is worth for the decoration and for the presentation but no way for the taste.
Conclusion: can be nice when they are not full and not tired :).... if you are not to strict with the service and quality.. you can like it...

Vin jaune,Compte cheese,tartiflette,morilles,chicken....that's the Jura for you..what a nice and cozy resto..i was invited by one of my suppliers that lives in Les Rousses so he knew that this place would please his customers from Quebec,food and service was a cut above the other restos in the area.Who ever said that french waiters were mean and did not give a hoot about pleasing customers should go here.
Vive la France!!

We chose this restaurant as it looked great from the outside, a traditional Jurassien chalet with a modern makeover. However things only went downhill from here. We were a table of four on hot lunchtime, the restaurant was fairly busy.
Two of our group ordered the trout burger, but after over fifteen minutes of waiting he came back to say they had none left and we had to order something else, ok to sell out but why take so long to let us know? The food eventually came, I had trout en papillote which was bland and served with just a small pot of rice, no vegetables or salad for 20 euros - terrible value. Another in our group had a burger, this was 18 euros and came served with two lettuce leaves and chips in a stupid cylinder, the tomato sauce was a horrible, runny, cheap vinegary affair. Another had warm goats cheese salad, she asked for no bacon but it came with bacon, salad was basic just lettuce
leaves with not enough dressing.
No body came over to check if the food was ok or to see if we wanted more drinks. I called the waiter over to complain about the poor quality of food and in attentive service but he was disinterested and just asked if we wanted dessert! We asked for he bill, which was wrong - tried to overcharge us on drinks. We won't be going back.
