Ate here last year a few times in the day and returned this year for an evening meal. Service is great, staff are very friendly. Complimentary bread served with a ham/cheese spread which was very nice. We both had steak. Sirloin and the Fillet. Both exceptional and cooked to our taste perfectly. Cafe gourmet dessert was delicious. Recommend to all.

We ate at this place quite a few times. It is great to sit outside when it is sunny as the seating area is shaded from any wind and is a bit of a sun trap. The menu choice is typical for the French Alps but the food is very good. The French Onion soup is great if you fancy... More

If with no request you get an amuse bouche and an attentive Staff you are half way to be Happy! When management is responding to bad criticism in Tryp Advisor with diplomacy you have to recomend them. On top of it fomos is Good and value is worthwile. The dourada was above average

If you are looking for a descent restaurant in the Bruyeres area in Les Menuires this is a good choice. They have a good beer and wine selection and the traditional cheese meals (fondue, raclette, etc.) are really good. But be sure to save some room for desert, they are delicious (and huge)!

We just stopped for a drinks here most afternoons. Service was friendly, efficient and the hot drinks tasty - especially the hot chocolate with Chantilly. We didn't eat as it was included in our hotel but it looked amazing!

First night meal and didn't disappoint. Traditional local food. Kids catered for with fresh chicken goujons and chips and usual Savoyard cheese dishes. I opted for filet de beouf which was cooked to perfection. Good value wines in glass carafe and bottles. Busy so book unless eating out early. Thanks

Comprehensive snack and a la carte menu. Lots of local dishes. Service was good and quick. The location is also very good for meeting up with kids at the end of ski school. Only stopped for lunch but 60€ for 5 including drinks was well worth it.

Our 3 sons love the pizzas; the excellent omelettes. We love the delicious and big salads; les frites and the fabulous deck chairs in the sunshine!

Had lunch here 3 times whilst on our short skiing break and also several pit stops. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome and obviously recognised us on our return visits. Good choice of food for lunch. Not fancy but very tasty and filling. Very efficient service. As you can tell, we really liked it here!

Lovely little restaurant with a good variety of savoyard dishes as well as the usual crowd pleasers. Easy to get to from the slopes with a large seating area outside too. The staff are always good and can mix a good mojhito!
