I used Tripadvisor to find a list of places in Annecy. This was not the highest rated as it might be too expensive for the average customer. It is not over-priced for the quality and it must be among the top places in the area. We had the fixed menu for 57 Euro and it was splendid, from beginning to end. The service was discreet but excellent and professional. It was a memorable meal and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Decided to eat here because of its Michelin star and because the owners of our apartment in Annecy recommended it and we weren't disappointed. Situated on an almost invisible little pedestrian alleyway that is all but hidden from the nearby throngs of tourists, La Ciboulette is a quiet and nearly elegant oasis in the overly busy old city of Annecy. The staff are almost too formal but they are efficient and they warmed up over time. The fixed price menu was overwhelmingly delicious--from the initial amuse-bouches including chèvre canapés, and cucumbers in a cream sauce, through two superb appetizers of lobster with wild asparagus and the most amazing roast pigeon in a rich brown mushroom sauce, to main courses of velvety smooth sea bream with asparagus, followed by a superb cheese course and delicately flavored creme fraiche to a dessert course of a cherry clafoutis with crisp sugary wafers and a strawberry mousse served in a chocolate basket accompanied with a light basil ice cream, to the coffee and petit fours accompanied by an astoundingly light but intensely flavorful cherry mousse (it was so delicious that my wife told the waiter that it brought tears to her eyes and he immediately responded by bringing her another), the meal was really all that we could have hoped for. This was not cheap, but for 57 Euros per person it was a memorable and delicious meal prepared and presented with skill and grace.

This restaurant lives to its name and reviews ( for this price point ie. price value ratio). The service staff were excellent. The food was of high quality especially the lobster offering (best lobster we had in France). There was a mixed of local and tourists in the restaurant. The place has outdoor and indoor dining depending on your preferences. I would definitely return to dine given the budget. If you have a few days in Annecy and for a less expensive but equally enjoyable dining experience, give Le Denti a try. You will enjoy both places.

La Ciboulette is situated in a cosy courtyard in Annecy, not far from the lake. The reception and the service were friendly and correct but not overwhelmingly personal. Well, the place was booked on this Saturday evening. The menu was very satisfying without exception. Lots of herbs and, of course, ciboulette (chives). The selle de veau was perfectly cooked. The beautiful food arrangements on the plates were worth to be shown in an art gallery! The 5-course menu at a very fair 70 € per person for a 1-star, with 2 amuse gueules. A very commendable restaurant.

We chose this restaurant for a special meal due to the TA rating and Michelin star and were not disappointed! The location is great, close to the centre of town but in a cute cul de sac.
Service was fantastic - staff were friendly, patient and very encouraging with our bad French.
We both had different items from the gastronomy 3 course menu and loved every course. Delicious lobster, tender veal, incredible chocolate/berry dessert and amuse bouche too.
If I was being really picky I could mention that I wasn't a fan of the butter and it was a little hard. Such a minor point though as everything else was spot on.
