If you do not mind the noise of downtown Aix-les-Bains and the parking problems, you will discover a well established and professionally run hotel-restaurant. My partner and I decided to stop by Le Bec Fin after two hours walking around the city center, enjoying the centuries old architecture, and window shopping outside shops offering the latest creations in high fashion clothing, as well as spas and real estate opportunities. We were ready for a good meal and stopped by Le Bec Fin. We were greeted courteously and our host told us that the menu (special) of the day was "civet de cerf" (deer stew). Hmmm, I'm not sure that I like deer and have always stayed away from game in the U.S. even when friends who are hunters offered to fill my freezer with it. But, I was assured that I would not be disappointed. We ordered two and were generally pleased as the taste was good, but slightly chewy. A carafe of white "cote du rhone" wine added to our enjoyment and we finally ordered two tartes tatin for dessert. The experience was pleasant and we promised to return with other friends.
