I think the visitor pictures show the style of a different chef. Ridiculously, we were given an English menu and a waitress with only French so we translated back for her. The dried meat platter is pleasant but the main courses were heavy-handed. The duck sauce was far too sweet, a fish course with Beaufort cheese was unbalanced. Chips were soggy and their oil needed changing. A mushroom 'creme brulee' starter was more like an omelette. Desserts did not impress.

“a lovely meal with excellent service in great surroundings”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

It's a few years since we last ate at Restaurant Lou Grangni and were surprised to see that it had changed completely, presumably under new management
It was good before and is very good now
The food is superior Savoyard, so local type cooking but top quality
On ordering we were provided with a complimentary plate of superb cold meats and pate with warm crusty bread
There was a very good choice of wines by the glass
There is a choice of set menus with options on each or an extensive a la carte
I wish I had eaten less as didn't have room for the great sounding desserts : (
By the way the friendly and confident waitress spoke great English and helped us navigate our way through the menus
So all in all, a really excellent meal and we hope to return soon

“excellent service and great food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had a great meal on 2/1/14 , 10 of us enjoyed an enjoyable meal at this restaurant. The waitress was very helpful and the food was very fresh and cooked in a very well managed kitchen. They have little booths that are great for couples too.
The restaurant is at the end of town so could be missed and is not on the st gervais website , but well worth booking. For larger groups , it is best to book and you can pre-order food as they can send you a menu beforehand so that they have plenty of the most popular dishes.
The set meals are great value and the desserts are good too!

“Small but perfectly formed!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon by chance as on the edge of the main square. We were squeezed in a corner and served lovely food and fantastic wine at reasonable prices. Full of French people, good sign, and don't speak a lot of English but make the effort with them and you will be rewarded. Make sure and find it and probably best to book!

“Nice restaurant - book in advance!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

A lovely little restaurant in the centre of St. Gervais. There's only a few tables, so worth booking in advance to be sure of a seat!

Like most others in St. Gervais, it focuses on Savoyarde Specialities - we went for Pierreade, which involves a very hot piece of stone being bought to your table (and kept hot on a meths burner), and a plate of little bits of raw meat that you can cook yourself, with a range of dipping sauces too. It's a great fun way to serve and eat your food, and keeps you busy; there was plenty enough meat to keep us going. (Careful of the mustard - it is HOT!!).

Service was good, there was (inevitably) a good choice of wines, and the menu included English translation for those who's French might not be quite so strong.
