Unfortunately, we had a lot of recommendations to go to that restaurant and were disappointed: slow service, poor quality and a barely enough quantity for a 20€ menu. It took us 1 hour and 45' to have lunch. An extra entrecot we asked for was close to rotten. And the rest of the food was just passable.

The chef is very friendly, speaks English and creates amazing dishes!! The meal of the day is an excellent choice. Soups, deserts, the whole meal is excellent. This is a great town to use as a base to see the area.

The atmosphere, hospitality and food are great. As a group of glider pilots from the Netherlands we are enjoying the great weather of the Alp valley and of course the gastronomy of this restaurant.
