“great raclette”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Not super organized with clearing tables (they need a busboy) so wait for a table a bit long for no reason. But once you are sitting, everything fine. Raclette cheese was some of the best I ever had. Good atmosphere.

“Good food but "service" let us down”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had lunch at this bistro and found it to be good value for money as far as the food was concerned. We arrived after the lunch rush was over and the other patrons were starting to clear out. No one came to take a drink order, they waited until about 15 minutes after we arrived and took the drink order with the food order. We both irdered the three-course prix fixe for 35 euros each, two glasses of wine and a carafe of water. We had to ask three times for the water. Obviously they thought if they made us wait long enough we would break down and order a bottle of overpriced Evian. The food was overall quite good, with the chicken in cream sauce and the rice pudding with salty butter caramel being quite excellent. Wines by the glass were acceptable and reasonably-priced, although they "accidentally" overcharged us by three euros per glass. This error was corrected when we pointed it out. First and main courses were served promptly, but we sat with our dinner plates in front of us for 20 minutes before they were cleared and dessert was brought. To the owner, if he/she is reading this: your wait staff are young and hip but require more supervision - apparently going out for a cigarette was more important than serving your clients. At 84 euros in total for two, this was a good meal for a reasonable price given that it's in the posh mountain resort of Megeve.

“If you are in hurry.............it is not your place!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Food: some dishes are excellent, like the fois gras, the tartare, the true frittes.....
The atmosphere is quite good, although a little "cold" to be in the center of the most beautiful village of the Alps. But the pity is the service, sometime it is so slow, but so slow that you may decide to leave!
