We chose this lovely little restaurant for a family lunch whilst having a daytime visit to Annecy. It is in a prime location of the old town and was a very cosy and charming restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose to sit outside to soak in the atmosphere of old town Annecy and managed to take the last table.

The welcome was very warm and inviting and the service was friendly, fast and efficient. This was a very child friendly location with the staff interacting with us and our children. I chose the quatre saisons pizza which was delicious, my husband chose the bavette steak which he enjoyed but thought that it would have been better with a little pepper or red wine sauce. When asked for sauce he was told that the only option was ketchup, mustard or mayonnaise. My daughter took lasagne which she thought was perfect and my younger son took carbonara. This was a huge portion that he was unable to finish luckily for us as we were all able to try a little and it was very creamy and absolutely delicious. Myself and my husband took wine with out lunch. I chose the house rose which was from Provence and was fruity and very palatable. My husband chose the house red which he said was a good choice and very tasty.

Inside the restaurant was cosy and clean and the toilet facilities were clean and welcoming - sometimes a rarity in France!

A perfect location, lively food and excellent service which led to a very positive experience.

Beautiful little restaurant - great food and good spot for people watching! You can't reserve a table so be sure to get there before 7pm otherwise you will have to wait!

Expect to wait at peak hours but good food at great price. Try to get here early and let guy know you will wait. Likely 10min max

Pouring with rain and all restaurants packed out, we were told we could have a table shortly.
Quickly cleared us a table and we were seated under cover. Very fast service, very tasty pizza went down well with a jug of house red.
Very reasonable price and staff were efficient, friendly and speedy.
We all enjoyed a in the rain in Annecy. Thank you very much.

We hadn't booked and were seated inside, a little cramped but we were grateful for the table. We ordered pizza which was cooked in the open kitchen and arrived within 5 or 6 minutes and was absolutely delicious.
