Very good if you like meat; authentic, rustic, cosy; and overall good value for a typical Savoyard menu with one or two unusual twists on offer.
My partner and I had an unexpected meat-fest here. My starter of bacon in a pastry crust was all bacon (properly a chunk of a shoulder of ham), with any crust baked away to near oblivion. The meat literally fell apart, and had evidently been cooked for a long time; the portion wold have been good even for a main course! My partner's starter was a salad, equally well sized. For mains we had braised beef, and tartiflette, with options for accompaniments - we had chard, not your everyday veg, and this was cooked to be very tender; again, my meat was tasty, succulent, and sublime in texture. We shared a nougat glace for dessert which was an interesting mix of flavours and textures, with an unusual hint of charred nuts. All of this was accompanied by a couple of aperitifs, half a bottle of Apremont, a pot of tea, and free shots of home made Genepi. The bill, at around £50 each, was good value.
My one criticism was that the restaurant felt one table too packed (ours), exacerbated as the place was deservedly busy throughout. The staff were pleasant, and kept up a hectic pace between them, always with a smile. One of the chefs worked on a range at the back of the restaurant, which in any case has a very homely theme, adding to that feel - as the sub text says, 'like Grandma's".
Overall, very good - though you'll need to like meat (unless you go for the ubiquitous cheese fondue).
