Nice patio on the waterfront, close to a little pier. We did not like the salad we ordered for starters. The mozzarella was industrial, the tomato bread was tasteless and the salmon was too creamy. The rest of the food (beef carpaccio, burger and pizza) was good. What really spoiled our lunch was the staff. We were seating close to the reception area and therefore got to hear it all: comments on the customers, including racist remarks, complaints about mistakes being made by waiters, all of it pretty loud. Killed the fun for my wife and I.

Beautiful setting, staff only interested in their regular locals & the owners kids friends. Food not great & very overpriced. Large beer 9 euros.

We stumbled across this restaurant when we came to the paid beach down the road, and what a lovely surprise. The view across the lake is enough to warrant 4 stars on its own, you're seated on decking right by the water under large umbrellas with panoramic views. We noticed that if you call ahead and book they will ensure you're seated right on the waters edge, so that's exactly what we did when we came back for dinner the next night.
The staff on both occasions were lovely, very attentive during dinner, but not overly pushy making you feel like they wanted to get another table in after you, you could relax and watch the world pass by on the water. They even called a taxi firm for us after dinner, as our French isn't that strong, so that we could get back to Annecy as the boats and buses had stopped by then (€40 to Annecy).
The food isn't cheap, but then again no where seems to be in that area, and it was very tasty. There's a great range, from pizzas (in the evening only), to wok dishes, to steak and then more traditional French food.
The whole atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed, and made the last night of our holiday!

Of course, we might have seen it coming, but we regretted not going to the pizzeria on the main road: it has a nouveau riche style and the food is pretentiously looking supermarket food. The mellow background beat didn't make it any better. The view was nice though, as was the personnel.

not cheap - we paid 45 euro per head (table of 8 pax) for 2 courses (burger and chocolate mousse) with 2 bottles of wine and an aperitif. But food was very good as was service and would return again.
