We had a table for 6 reserved (reservation is recommended, as the restaurant is fully booked every evening). We were welcomed politely. We ordered lamb and steak. We were surprised how fast we got the food. It was slow cooked and therefore ready when we ordered. The way the food was presented was a joy. There was no french fries... More

We have a home here in Chatel, so visit several times a year, and are familiar with most of the restaurants. We had dinner at La Poland last night and it just goes from strength to strength. The food was delicious and the presentation superb. The fixed price menus are extraordinarily good value, and the service warm and friendly. There... More

We have an apartment in Chatel and been this season as a couple, with couples and with friends. It's very well priced for the quality of food and service always great. Would recommend. As the last review says, Chatel now has more residents than the town has tables for dinner and so booking is highly recommended.

A very nice village with several nice restaurants. The food is very touristic . Easy to find table if you are there early, after eight are all restaurants very busy.

I guess La Poya is as close as you get to high end dining with a Savoyard twist in Chatel. The food is very well presented and the combination of duck, red meats and foigras in the menu certainly means that you will not leave hungry although you will need to invest in multiple courses. We went for the set... More

Tried to call for a reservation for several days without an answer. Went there yesterday and got told that 'the phone is not working' and that they do not have an overview over the reservations for tonight. Got promised a call or SMS for today This never happened. This fits into last years experience, where we got good food but... More

We visited La Poya for both lunch and dinner. The meals were delicious and beautifully served. Olivier is such a friendly host and greets us as friends. Lunch menus are different everyday and very good value for money. Look forward to returning again.

Came here as a holiday treat after seeing it was highly rated and we were not disappointed. Fast and efficient service with a very friendly and welcoming waiter. We all picked from the 36€ menu and every dish was perfectly presented and tasted amazing, the cheese selection was great with a good description of each one. Although the place was... More

Between us we had foi gras, duck, cod, crayfish; pudding was apple and sable biscuit, to start we had a chefs choice amuse boy he and before desert came out a cheese board on wheels. No cheese there could have been a wrong choice. The... More
