We had the Hot Rock 3 meat dinner. The duck was excellent! Too much meat though, we couldn't finish. Friendly service!

VERY nice atmosphere! You can consider the staff as your friends. They make jokes and give you good advice on the portions. The food was fantastic! We spent one of those very unique evenings. When I come back I we'll make sure to go back to this amazing restaurant😀.

Just had a great meal here, on a ski trip, went there based on reviews with the goal to enjoy some cheese...not disappointed! Service was very good (in French although I was with a group of French friends), we split the group of 6 into half on raclette and half on fondue. Both were excellent...and not short on portions either.... More

Amazing food that you get to do it yourself, but keep in mind that you will end up smelling like the food you make by the time you leave the restaurant. Great host, and prices above average,
