We had a nice dinner, with a 3 course meal with positive surprises. The choice of wines is good. Only the coffee is quite expensive (3,90€), eventhough served with nice cookies.

We stopped by without reservation on a busy Saturday night. The staff did everything they could to accomodate us. The food was superb, nicely done and great variety. We had one $33 prefix and one $45 prefix and choice from duck liver to fish tartar to rabbit to lamb to cheese course and deserts did not disappoint. Reasonable wine list,... More

Excellent atmosphere, service and food. We ordered the 33 euro menu for dinner. Both first courses were wonderful. My wife had fish for second course and duck with a blueberry chanterelle sauce and grilled peaches for myself. I eat a lot of duck and it may be the best ever. Desserts and wine also excellent. It is not the cheapest... More

After arriving at Annecy late in the afternoon we were able to get a table the same day. The restaurant is quite small without feeling crowded though the place was fully booked. We went for the EUR 45 menu consisting of 4 courses incl. cheese and dessert (foie gras, veal, goat cheese and chocolate dessert). As we were only two... More

I think this place is difficult to judge, one cannot say that the proposed dished are not well prepared with a decent taste but some things do not work out; the amounts that are served are quite small, the combination of flavors are not always correct, the denominations are pretentious and reality is different. Overall this makes me give a... More

Had a business dinner for 10+ people, unfortunately needed two tables, while no big table was available. Selected the daily menu recommended by the waiter (owner?) and it was great. First "blini" then a great duck breast cooked to perfection. Young, but good vine from Languedoc-Rossilion, just perfect with the duck. May need an interpreter their English is rather poor

We went there by coincidence. It was one of the very good restaurants we tried in France. Food is gastronomic, and a bit on the pricy end.

We were celebrating our 32nd Wedding anniversary, and I had researched a few restaurants in Annecy but I kept coming back to Bilboquet as my first choice, so glad I did.

The food was really nice. The only think we could say is that the mains were too salty. The dessert are very good as well. We had a good time, the service was great. If you do not go for the menus, then it is a place you go to to celebrate, not for a casual dinner after a heavy... More
