“A great terrace on the lac leman!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

Get a place on the terrace and you won't be disappointed! One of the best view over the lake, the garden and the castle.
Disservice is very good quality and the menu allows you to go from fish to meat without uncertainties. Interesting as well the dessert menu.
We had a very good risotto, not on the menu. And the persic fish with 2 different sauces. Recommended with a good bottle of wine.
If you are in town, take your time for a visit here!

“The best fish I have ever enjoyed.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2010

There seem to be an endless supply of excellent restaurants in this tiny picturesque medieval village. It manages to pander to tourism without being too......touristy (if you know what I mean) although I suspect the village must be jam packed during the height of summer. Get there early for a parking space.

We enjoyed some lovely food at Les Jardins du Leman amongst which was without doubt the loveliest fish I have ever eaten in a restaurant.

It was nothing flash - just Perche Meunierre served with lemon butter sauce (the local speciality it seems)... but it was AWESOME.

The place was packed out (mostly with seemingly well to do locals who seemed to regulars) but it was a very comfortable place to enjoy a meal.

The only downside was that the waiting staff in the upstairs room were more than a little
rude....refused to make eye contact, made you feel like they were doing you a favour, apppearing far to busy to be nice (they were busy - but there is no excuse for taking that our on customers and a smile costs nothing). The service was efficient but charmless.

Having said that (and it is most unusual for me to reward charmless service with a repeat visit) I wouldn't hesitate to dine there again - that fish was worth it.
