If you're looking for a typically buzzing French / Savoyard experience, this is it! Quaint, slightly quirky character bar/restaurant serving typical Savoyard fare at very reasonable prices. Recommended.

We went early since we heard that the best seats are on the canal and go early (around 7 PM). Had a nice rumsteak and fera (the local fish) that were both very good. The dinners included a nice salad and fries which we really enjoyed.

The place was really full, so a little lack of service. We had pork steak and seafood pot. The taste was good, but we expected more for this rating.

Nice location in the middle of the Old City with tables on the street, inside the restaurant and on the terrace facing the channel. Had a Tartiflette (abundant plate with a tasty salad aside) and my husband had a delicious reblochon pané. The attention was very good, the installation was clean and the food was excellent.

Has been one of the most consistent and dependable places to eat in all of the old town. Vincent, the owner is an excellent host and has, in the many years we have been coming to Annecy become like family.

The restaurant also has many unique, interesting artifacts. I tried the traditional tartiflette - it was outstanding and a generous portion. My husband took the waiter’s... More

Food here was good. Only thing that disappointed me we were not given the wifi password for some reason. Just declined having wifi. Had to break the password. But food was good quality and service wasnt bad as well. Location is very good - right in the centre.

Loved this little spot! I had the tartiflette and salad, my daughter had the large vegetarian salad. It was delicious. Her salad was huge with a great variety of fruits and vegetables. My salad was delicious with a kind of mustard vinaigrette. The tartiflette was creamy, rich, and hit the spot in a cool rainy day.
