Whenever I'm in Thonon I like to stop at Chez Fernand for a good noisette or espresso because they have the best coffee in town. They also make a great juice of the day, different everyday made with fresh fruit. It is always excellent. You can also have a light and healthy lunch, last time I was there I took... More

We were looking for a cosy place for lunch and stumbled across this restaurant. It was around 13h00 and packed. We went back 20 minutes later and were able to have a nice table for two by the window. A lovely cosmopolitan feel about the place, nicely decorated with the food and drinks menus on large blackboards on the walls.... More

They have about 7 items to choose from in small portion sizes. You get 4 choices for about 14 euros, 5 for 15.5 euros (from memory) which is then enough for a decent meal. Pros: will take orders relatively late (past 2PM). Great if you are in a hurry - service was very quick even though the place was full.... More

We were hoping for dinner, but despite the large chalkboard menu on the wall, we were told that they only serve lunch. Okay, so we had some delicious wine the server selected and she was spot on, it was wonderful. After 3 days here, we still haven't figured out why some places are open for dinner on some nights and... More

A group of 8 of us went for dinner and had a great experience - the staff was very friendly and fun (the waiter saw us taking photos outside while we waited for our table and came out to assist); the atmosphere is quaint and romantic (but not overly so); there was a good selection of wine, which was very...

Stumbled upon this little gem in the centre of an otherwise grey village on Lake Leman. Small but cozy space complemented by a warm welcome and a smart ambience. The concept of choosing "tapas" to mix-match your own dish is refreshing - and extremely tasty. Everything tasted fresh, notwithstanding the tiny kitchen they had to work from. Certainly worth a...

With daily concoctions of fresh juices, ranging from melon-raspberry to orange-papaya-kiwi, single-grove coffees, and emphasis on local, healthful products, Fernand & Cie is a destination worth putting on your itinerary, whether you reside nearby or are travelling through the area to visit the Évian/Chamonix region. The owners are friendly, dynamic, and upbeat, and the location feels like you’re spending a... More

For the inevitable breakfast, coffee break, lunch or a drink, alone, with friends or family, you will feel good Chez Fernand. Here, no freezer, no microwave. Seasonal produce and day are featured. The chief wants to work with local producers who practice sustainable agriculture. All his fine dishes and decadent desserts were born to his mood of the day ... And it's always a treat. So drop by Fernand, and iron when you want!
