The menu is small but perfect, excellent quality I will not spoil it but all the course we're first class, with a few surprises thrown in by the chef.

This is a restaurant with an exceptional view and setting on the lac. The menu is innovative and the dishes are good even if the portions are on the small side and the desserts are not their strong points. Being located in a hotel/palace, you have the impression that the Viu aims to be at the gastronomic level but what... More

The view over the lake is breath taking so get their early before sunset to appreciate the beauty. The food was good , well prepared, well presented and with a good range of choices. The wine list was comprehensive and the advice from the sommelier excellent. If possible order a window table to really enjoy the view

We ate here for Christmas dinner. It was the best meal of our trip. My wife still talks about the scallops. I had a duck dish that was simply amazing. If we ever make it back to the lake annecy area, we will be eating at Le Viu.

We arrived without a reservation for a Friday lunch and weren't allowed onto the hotel parking, as it is reserved for hotel guests. We asked if the restaurant had a table available, and were assured that this was "bien sur" the case. Fair enough, so we parked outside, walked up to the restaurant, and learned therer that the kitchen closed... More

From the rude and badly trained staff to the terrible overpriced (I suspect frozen) food not to mention the relatively run down boudoir style restaurant ( just bad style in terms of decoration and passé) with dirty lampshades often torn this place only has a view. ... In terms of breakfast its at par with a campanile ... Actually sub... More

We have been spoiled with very good food over the last few weeks on our holiday, and perhaps the comparisons made this meal seem not as good as it was. The coat was fairly reasonable, but the meal itself was only average. Our entrees were certainly very nice, but the salmon for the main course was only lukewarm and quite... More

Went with a friend for lunch and took advantage of their 25Euro formula. I had a risotto starter and then a filet of perch. It included a glass of wine which was very nice. My friend had the plate (perch) followed by dessert which was fresh blueberries over a rectangle pie-like crust with a small scoop of ice cream and... More
