This place gets five stars because I could imagine eating there a few times every week. The cooking is unfussy yet the flavours are fresh and interesting; the service is matter-of-fact yet welcoming. Beautiful peaceful outside seating area in summer. I tried the local terrine, magret de canard with myrtle sauce and pan-fried omble (lake fish) with ratatouille. On our... More

An old farm which has been converted into a restaurant offering a varied choice of dishes as well as the usual mountain fare. Good food, fair prices and friendly & efficient service. Only open from Thursday to Sunday except in the high season and can get very busy at weekends so best to reserve a table.

Turned down at a mountain top restaurant we drove down and headed for the valley toward Faverges. On our way we drove past the "Chalet d'en O" so we tried it; we are glad we did. The service was correct, the place clean and welcoming. But it is the food that makes this place. I had the Terrine aux Trompettes... More

Tucked away up a valley outside of Thones this small restaurant oozes mountain charm. Snow was falling heavily as we arrived and an authentic alpine room and a warm fire greeted us invitingly from the cold. We kicked off with a very good terrine with trompette de la mort mushrooms and a sort of pressed and pan fried tartiflette for... More

Cozy ambient, fireplace, just a few tables, booking is highly advisable. Basically a mountain shack, with a couple of rooms for the night, if needed. Menu varies, with interesting interpretations of regional flavors, and good choice of wines. Recommended. The only flaw was the entrecote: the meat was thin and rather chewy and nervous; other than that, I would give... More

We chanced upon this little gem on a sunny lunchtime in February, and what a find. I couldn't believe it hadn't already been reviewed on Tripadvisor, as it deserves to be better known. It looked like a cute little chalet beside the road, in a sunny spot. There were a lot of cars parked outside. we took a chance, parked... More
