We were waiting for our cater to Lausagne, so we went to this restaraunt to eat some pizza and drink coffee. Atmosphere was nice and cozy. Good to visit when you are around.

We were there on a business dinner. The restaurant is cozy and the service was extremely friendly and efficient. The meals I chose were all nicely served and tasty. But maybe my expectation was too high given the rates and comments I read here and apart from the delicious dessert, the starter and main course were good. Nothing unforgettable as... More

First off, there are only about 6 tables, so reservations are strongly recommended. The food is carefully prepared, well presented and excellent. The menu is not over large, but with this type of quality, it's not needed. Everything is GREAT !

Very small so a reservation is vital unless you are really lucky. Great value for excellent food. Made with extreme care and very well presented. Definatly worth a visit.

As almost all restaurants in the city were closed Wednesdays or closed period, we hardly had a choice for dinner. How lucky we were to come here as it was excellent. Not too much of a choice of dishes but something for everyone....meat, fish or vegetarian. The food was not only delicious but beautifully presented and in perfect portions. Prices... More

This is a typical small French restaurant with tables on the street in the summer. There is a good choice of food and the service is attentive and fast. I would definitely recommend for a break during your visit to Evian.

A lovely spot. Service was friendly and exactly to the point. As an example, although we were drinking Bordeaux, I was chatting with our server about Haute Savoie wines, so she poured me a taste. Got to love that. Our food was everything we wanted. Great bread, delicious and affordable wine, an amuse-bouche of just right gazpacho, fresh, tasty salad... More

I'm really not sure why there are so many enthusiastic reviews. The place is tiny and cute. Next to couple of other eateries forming together this little food "tunnel" Food however is very pedestrian, menu offers 3 choices per course Salmon appetizer was strangely just as large of a plate as entree. Beef was covered in a typical cream sauce... More

Stayed a couple of days in Evian, had lunch and dinner in different restaurants, and decided that l'instant gourmand was the best over all! Very tasty food, nicely presented, excellent wine and very friendly service. Pricing ok. Advised.

The food here is not too bad. I would have given it 3 stars only but since that would mean getting an 'average' review which would be unfair, I am giving it 4 - This place is good but not very good though. Nice little restaurant with some interesting dishes. Not cheap cheap though.
