Reviewed February 1, 2012

decent selection of dishes and food pretty good but a bit rough around the edges in places. Lovely vino!

“reasonable choice for visitors to Alp D. nice wines.”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Traditional decor, ski tourist orientated menu with some savoyard specialities, Reasonable service, helpful boss. Good wine recommendations and the well priced local wines are worth tasting. Local wines use local grape vaietals you wont find at home and the whites are fresh and crisp. All age groups eating whern we were there..

“Good food...if you can get it!”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

I've eaten here a few times now, coming here the first time on holiday with friends, and subsequently the winter just gone with my family and my experiences have been mixed. The first couple of times when the restaurant was not so busy, the service has been good and the food good too.

Where this place let's itself down is when the restaurant is busy. I worked a season here last year and ate twice with my family during half term. When it gets busy, you can easily wait 20 mins between times when a waiter will come to your table. They seem to pack the restaurant out as much as possible without having the staff available to serve everyone.

Apart from the service, the food is good, ambience nice - shame it lets itself down.

“A lovely friendly place”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

Good food, lovely decor and friendly staff. We all had the plat du jour option but wish I had tried some of the more exciting items on the menu.
