“Underwhelming”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Staff were friendly but unorganised and the food was ok but underwhelming. Overall I wouldn't go back.

“Great food, pristine environment”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Thredbo itself is a wonderful place all year round but to have a fabulous restaurant and chef like Jean Michel tops it off. Our table of five chose a variety of dishes both on the menu and the specials. All were exquisite, obviously done with flair and passion. Wine list good and the local schnapps ( distilled down the road ) makes a interesting if slightly boozy end to a memorable meal.

“Fabulous food and service”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely family meal here (including our young child) with a warm welcome, great service, good food and fabulous views over the river. Highly recommend it as one of the nicest and friendliest places to eat in Thredbo.

“Innovative and Authentic French Cuisine”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

After living & travelling in France I have come to know what real French food tastes like. Jean-Michel not only respects the authentic flavours of his country's fare - he innovates on them with a surprising modern twist. My Blanquette de Veau was a delight to the senses. Artistically presented, with delightful contrast among the taste & texture of ingredients, yet I still found the tender & flavourful meat I have adored for years. Georgie & team were friendly and without pretense, which offered a relaxed atmosphere to simply enjoy a delicious meal.
