Visited here last night (a Friday night). We found the restaurant on Tripadvisor but stumbled upon the place again whilst walking past. We chanced to try get a table at about 8pm but they were so popular that the earliest we could sit would be 9:20pm. We returned at our allotted time and found the place to be a bit... More

Having trouble finding somewhere to eat lunch - so many places seemed shut for Autumn/winter but, this one was open so gave it a try. Good decision ! The waiter was very knowledgable about the food and was keen to talk about it. I tried Perch, with Parmesan shavings, pesto sauce , on a bed of black rice, with a... More

After the day at the Convention, we decided with some business colleges to walk into downtown Aix les Bains dinner. The restaurant had nice tables outside at the pedestrian area of the historic downtown. We decided for a classic frensh menu. The quaity of the menu and the service was excellent. We liked it a lot here.

We went there because they have a gorgeous outdoor terrace in Place Carnot which has a nice fountain and cobble stoned streets so it's pretty. The menu is decent with a good choice and of course like all French restaurants they offer a daily menu which is outlined like 3 ways so you can enjoy an entree, meal and dessert... More

This restaurant was a big disappointement!. More or less a tourist trap. I chose the gourmet menu ar €42. Foie gras was OK, although probably from a tin. Scallops were terrible!!! Chef cannot have any sense of taste. Try the restaurant 'Nos Copains' across the street. A much better deal and an experience compared to this one!

Indulged in the local grub, Tartiflette. It was ok, but I've had better. Not enough onions and too much Reblechon.Good setting, alfresco, in the square.

Went for Saturday lunch. Took 10 minutes till someone reached us and 15 more till we got the menu. Took the 'menu of the day' ( to simplify things as we don't speak French). First was good, but main was below average ( simple chicken with potatoes). Outside sitting was nice, tough.

Went there with friends for dinner and we shared the most exquisite fondue. Lovely restaurant and excellent service from the staff. Try the jennepi crème brûlée, it's a must

We sat in a cordoned area of a square some way from the restaurant which we did not find entirely comfortable. The staff were very busy, hard working and friendly. The food was fresh and well cooked and considering the distance it travelled - hot.
