“Creative French Alps cuisine, excellent service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Ok, we are in the town of Annemasse and not in Chamonix, but here lots of traditional dishes of Haute-Savoie (French Alps) are cooked. The cuisine is traditional and creative at the same time (try their hamburgers, Savoie style !). All of that is done with premium ingredients (cheese, hand-made cold cuts) and with a careful attention. The service is great : friendly, kind and efficient. Thank you, we had a wonderful dinner !

“Good place to eat cheese-based dishes like fondue and raclette”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

The restaurant, located in the center of Annemasse, has a nice atmosphere. They have a good selection of cheese-based dishes, like fondue, raclette and tartiflette. But even if you don't like cheese, there are other possibilities, like burgers and fish from the nearby lake. Service is good and the price is OK for what they serve.

“Keep coming back and we will come back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2011

We lived in this area some years ago when we were recommended this "Savoyard" restaurant. Since then and each time we are in the Geneva area, we have to come back to this restaurant. Most of their most famous dishes have cheese, potatoes, bacon ("fondues", "tartiflettes", the "pêla du tournavel" is amazing and "raclette" is our favourite). They also have several very good (hot) salads (good portions when ordered as a meal) and I can suggest the "Salade Tournavel". They also have some steaks, fish and "diots" which are sausages (from this region) cooked in white wine.
I agree with other reviews that the prices have gone up a lot, but the place is still very busy. The decor, mainly in wood is very pretty.
In my opinion the staff is efficient but their number is insufficient for the amount of tables/people, so they run all the time. We were sat and the food was brought to us pretty quickly, but we had to wait a long time for the check.
It is also a good alternative to go there if you are in Geneva and have a car. Just cross the border at Moisellaz (?) keep going in route de Geneve until de Mairie de Annemasse. The restaurant is near by.
This time we had dinner at Tournavel twice from our three day trip to Geneva.
