This is just such a special restaurant with excellent food, the owners are a husband and wife team who ensure satisfaction, a small but good menu to suit everyone, without a doubt a favourite restaurant in the region, make sure you book in good time, not to be missed and it's very affordable. The Fois Grois is first class, we... More

This is a lovely restaurant. I went with my son and found the menu quite limited but I believe that is because it was August. The service was great and the staff spoke English which made my life easier.

Small but interesting menu that we both found something on which when it arrived was better than we expected. The wines complemented the dishes perfectly and oh what a glass full you get!! It's more like being round at your friends for dinner. A little gem for lunch and dinner. Arrive, relax and enjoy. You leave feeling pampered.

Great atmosphere and friendly owners. Food was fantastic. Only problem is to get a table, order a few weeks in advance!

We came here unaware of the reputation of this restaurant. We were surprised, when making the reservation, to get the last table. Waking on the deserted streets it was obvious that the season ended and there were not many people around. The place has only a few tables and seems to be run by a family. The cooking is excellent,... More

This is a lovely little place! The menu is small but interesting. The service is personal without being overbearing. We opt for a glass of wine with every course and it was the first time in France that I was served a 'proper' glass of wine. They are not stingy with their wine. The food is lovely and beautifully presented.... More

This is a really good restaurant. It has no more than 24 covers, with the couple who run it serving and cooking. It is very popular, and you will need to book in advance. Lunch service lasts only an hour, and dinner from 7.30 pm to 9 pm. The interior is quietly and tastefully decorated, with simple place settings. The... More

The charming couple that opened Le Confidentiel brought a new level of dining to Menthon. It's my parents' favorite place. They are welcoming and serve food that delighted everyone in our group, who ranged in age from 6 to 80. You can order their delicious terrine de foie gras to serve chez vous if you need (or want) a treat.

Le Confidentiel is a romantic little nook in the village of Menthon Saint Bernard. The 8 tables are graciously served by Flanchon while her husband Sebastien whips up delicacies in the kitchen. Both hail from the Michelin 2 star restaurant Clos Des Sens in Annecy Le Vieux. The menu is limited, but well balanced an every meal divine. Sebastien's fish... More

Onlly about 8 tables in this gem of restaurant, and reservations are a must. Easier to find a table for the lunch service. Worthy of a Michelin star - the whole experience from ambience, wine, food, and service - was superior. Thank you for a treat for all of our senses.
