We picked this place as we wanted to eat delicious local food in a fairly relaxed setting and it totally delivered. The fondue was excellent and we enjoyed a couple of glasses of the house red too. I would go back.

A relaxing place, nice service, delicious French traditional food. My boy enjoyed the food, also the dessert. What I love most is the view out of the restaurant window: the Mont-Blanc! What you can expect more from a family holiday?

We stopped there during a cold day as it was right by the parking lot. We ordered big salad and a cheese fondue which was quite a big portion, very good and made us a bit warm during that cold day
