A friend and I had a truly brilliant experience at this restaurant. If you're in Annecy and you want a cheese-based meal, you have to come here! We shared wine, a fondue and raclette, with a variety of salad, potatoes and bread, which were frequently topped up (we were also offered more fondue and cheese for the raclette when we... More

I'm a little divided in my review. On one hand, I am glad that we were able to have the authentic "raclette experience" with the big contraption on the table heating our cheese. On the other, I got the feeling I was in a very touristy place, I don't believe this is where the locals hang out. We made reservations... More

If you looking for local french food in Savoia come here. Great choice of fondue and other cheese specialties. Bit disappointed by onion soup with cheese as proportion of cheese was a dominant and too over killing when you simply looking for hot onion soup to get wormed.

The restaurant had decent fondue. The wine in the pitcher was terrible. Other restaurants have fondue with a better view. Do ask for the potatoes with fondue, pomme de terre!

We had the best meal here on Saturday, 18th March, 2017. We did make reservations several days in advance - that is necessary, I believe, if you want to guarantee a seat. We ordered a raclette for two (they price per person) to share, and a selection of meats. The potatoes were fabulous as well. We enjoyed a bit of... More

If you like traditional cheese dishes this place is a must. You won't get the chalet style decor with red and white chequered tablecloths, in fact the place looks closed when you walk in and a bit worn and sad. The smell of cheese hits you pretty hard, really busy and the choice is there. We had a fab fondue... More

Just had very good meal at this gem in Annecy. The restaurant appears closed when you approach, however the smell that greets you when you open the front door is amazing. Turns out its upstairs so don't be put off by the appearance downstairs. Waiter spoke excellent English, was very welcoming and made good recommendations. Food was simple but tasty.... More

I came here twice with my girlfriend. I love this place, it has a really nice selection of fondues and also the rest of the menu items look really inviting. The atmosphere is quite nice as well. I will come here again as soon as I have a chance.
