I ate with 2 friends and we each had the market menu. 19 Euros and bottle of wine 83 Euros. A fair price for the food, table by the lake and excellent service. Salad and fried pesto bread cubes , white fish and dessert We watched the paragliders sail over the lake and land nearby. A leisurely way to enjoy... More

Loved being right on the lake. Had there 3 course lunch for 19 Euros and all three dishes were excellent. I would highly recommend it.

Food very good and setting by the lake is as you'd expect, lovely. Service good and parking is easy. Only real drawback is that it never felt like great value but that's Annecy by the lake for you!

Had a family meal on a rainy chilly Sunday night, the food was superb, great ingredients, clever experiments. Our six year old devoured the ink pasta with clams and mussels. The foie gras burger was beautifully put together and nicely cooked and so were the starters. Bit pricy but the location is spectacular, must be lovely to come in warner... More

we visited this restaurant for lunch and not wishing to "break the bank" we ordered the Menu du jour at 19 euros per person for the three course lunch. Our expectations were surpassed as the quality of the food and presentation was first class. Also for a set lunch the portions were large. A similar meal in the UK would... More

The terrace is almost literally in the water and the menu is deversified with many fish and meat choices. Too bad for us that day it was heavily raining and the seating inside is less charming. I had duck magret and it was a very good choice. Romantic setting and lovely view.

My wife and I had expectations that this would be a wonderful dining experience. The setting is beautiful, on the lakeside looking up at the paragliders making their descent from the mountains high above. The lake was calm and we enjoyed watching the swimming ducks, mergansers and a swan. My starter was foie gras and was delicious served with some... More

2 staff were rude and arrogant, especially when we were asked if everything was fine with the meal. As we had returned the alla vongole because it was a pile of cold congealed mush, which was replaced, but after the rest of the party had finished their meal, my son, who speaks excellent French, was told they can't check everything...

This is a stunning setting and a lovely, if expensive night out. There is a private beach and boules court which was fun. The meal was good - not excellent. The portion sizes of the menu du jour were on the small side. The desserts were not top quality and the squirty cream on the side made me take marks... More
