We had a great dinner here with our family of 4. The food was delicious - we had the grilled gambas and tuna. Excellent and friendly service.

Whilst not at the side of the lake unlike many other restaurants, this one tops in food and service!

Our experience here was very disappointing. My wife ordered a slice of leg of lamb. When it arrived she found it a bit tough and stringy, the steamed potatoes tasted very unpleasant, and the sauteed vegetables were very overcooked and mushy. Thinking perhaps she just made a poor choice and it wasn't her style, after three bites she decided to take the left-over meat home and order a burger.

She specified the burger be well done, not pink, with no cheese as she is allergic to dairy. The waiter understood. We waited 20 minutes for the burger. When it came it was nearly raw inside. We showed it to the waiter and he saw immediately that it was not well done. He apologized and took it back. After another 20 minutes, the replacement came out... It was well done, but both buns had melted cheese on them. We showed it to him and he apologized again, embarrassed at another mistake. He took the bun and after another 10 minutes, the replacement bun arrived. She finally was able to eat her meal.

The waiter was very apologetic. However no compensation was reflected in the final bill.

All in all, we were very disappointed. We've had so many great meals in France!! But this is one of those restaurants with 40+ tables and the food is mass produced restaurant fare. We don't understand how this restaurant gets so many good reviews!

Much better to find one of those quintessential French restaurants with about 8 tables where the food is the result of passion for quality and the service conveys a commitment to providing a satisfying experience.

Have been today and we were served in a professional way with smiling. The menu is not long thus well acceptable and the dishes are varied so you can find all for you. Also some typical dishes are proposed like Tartiflette or Diots. The prices are in line with the quality of dishes and not very expensive. I recommend it also for the good service.

Seen from the outside, I did not expect to leave so satisfied. This is not a "grand restaurant" but a nice relaxed place to eat good food with good company.
We dropped by by accident so we didn't have a reservation. The staff was very kind and after a short wait we got a table. The place was full. still the atmosphere was pleasant.
I ordered a Hamburger and that was just wonderful. So good actually, i would do a detour to get another one next time i'm close.
Excellent food, very nice service, good price: go there you'll like it

We dropped by before they were open to review the menu, then made reservations for 19:30. Good thing we did. They were quite busy when we returned. Food was amazing! Service was better. Perfect night! Try the trout rillete or the veal chop. The ribs were amazing also.
