“Fastfood how it should be”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

How anyone can go across the road to McDonalds with Cresendo there is beyond my comprehension. The food is not gourmet, or maybe not to the restartaunt standard (depends on the restaurant) but it is very good. The price is reasonable for what you get, and there are often special deals. The decor is a bit dated (compared to Cluses), but still fine.

There is a system to get the hang of. For tea, coffee, and hot food you get a ticket when you pay, and you bring that ticket to the respective area.

The veg are all you can eat!

“Good Enough”
Reviewed July 21, 2010

It's a cafeteria, and it acts like a cafeteria. Our French is not good, and the three employees who showed us how the system works were polite and helpful. The salmon, while not what my fisherman relative catches in Oregon, US, was good enough. Crescendo is like eating in a North American cafeteria with a significant upgrade in the cheese section: inexpensive, plenty of food, and comfortable.

“It is cheap and it is cheerful......”
Reviewed July 16, 2010

We saw that the place was quite full on a visit to the area mid June 2010, so ventured in. Well - 2 free glass of Kir, Steak Frites, Chicken Pasta, Apricot tart and custard all for about 14 Euros! Not fantastic food, but certainly nothing wrong with it (& you can stand at the grill to tell the Chef exactly how you want your steak cooked), good selection of veggies to go with mains & plenty of it, all fresh cooked. We could have had huge pieces of grilled salmon and beef stew was also on offer. If staying @ Ibis Sallanches again, would certainly pop in for another quick meal.

“Cheap and somewhat cheerful”
Reviewed October 17, 2009

Two people, three courses includng wine all for under 20 Euros.

The Pizzas and grill aren't too bad. You get what you pay for.

Eaten there several times on many visits to the Ibis and not been sick yet - maybe I've just been lucky
