Description: From our 160 seats south orientated terrasse, or from one of our 4 inside dining rooms with a total capacity of 160 seats, you will can start your meal by one of our salades, snails, or other house made soups, by our home made Foie Gras, or our beef carpaccio with or without fries. You could follow by a beef tartare, or a breast of duck, or a piece of lamb For the most hungry ones, you will choose our 500gr XXL entrecot, or our ZLATAN Burger and its 360gr steak!!! Obviously the specialities like the fondues, raclettes, and other hot stones, tartiflettes, would satisfy the traditionals savoyard cuisine! For the smallest apetites, our home made pizzas could be taken away. We do not forget the sweet adepts, with our home made deserts like tiramisu, chocolate cake, tatin tarte, or our revisited blackberries tarte... and our ice cream.

“Excellent service and staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

The choice of food was excellent and reasonably priced (and delicious.). The staff were extremely helpful - we were a group of 10 and were celebrating a birthday. The restaurant not only allowed us to bring in our own cake, but served it on plates decorated with piped cream and sauce - at no extra cost! We were very impressed with the service!!

“Expensive and just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

We've had a couple of weeks eating here over several holidays.
The good: excellent location, nice staff, great pizzas, good Alpine specialities. The kids loved the massive Sundae for dessert. Nice coffee.
The bad: most other things felt like assembly line food, and were pretty mediocre. That would be forgiveable if the prices weren't Alpine in scale.
So if you're happy to have the standard fare (Pizzas, tartiflette, raclette etc), crack open a bottle of the local wine, and relax about the bottom line, you'll have a really nice meal.
But don't stray too far from the formula!

“Great food - great evening!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

Had great meal here, our waiter (possibly the owner?) was friendly and efficient. Happy to converse with us in French and English. I had a foie gras starter followed by raclette, and about two thirds of a bottle of red. Including a tip it came to 50 Euros. Very good and happy to recommend.
