  • La Bastille: Prison Quality Food

    by namster Updated Oct 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After two consecutive nights of good dining at the La Petite Zinc Restaurant (25, Avenue des Romains) and Le Cheltenham Pub (19, Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau) we decided to give La Bastille a try because of where it was located (beside the famous prison by the river).

    La Bastille left us with a bad memory of what would have been a marvelous holiday in Annecy.

    We were seated quite literally knocking elbows with other patrons but we could deal with that. What tipped the scales was bad service, horrendous food and an overcharged bill. My wife's Mushroom Tagliatelle had about 2 pieces of mushroom in it and completely tasteless as if someone forgot to add any seasoning. The evening ended most unpleasantly when the bill came - with the wrong value. It took a long time to rectify and we had to face down 3 unapologetic grouchy waiters who tried to convince us the bill was correct.

    Don’t be fooled by the location and marginally cheaper menu.

    Favorite Dish: I used to like pasta until I ate here...

    Cafe les Ducs (Cafe of the Dukes): Great coffee

    by Kate-Me Written Jul 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I mention this particular coffee/restaurant as for us, it had the best coffee we had in France.
    I must add that generally the coffee we were served around France wasn't as nice as we were accustomed to, so I recommend this cafe on the main canal.
    (Upon returning home, I mentioned this lack of good coffee in France to a French friend running his own cafe in Melbourne, and he told me that French coffee is rather good, in fact, but that he feels the waiters/serveurs in France don't know how to brew it properly..... made a bit more sense to me than French coffee being bad...

    Favorite Dish: The coffee! Very nice cappucino of the kind you'd expect as standard in Australia, and my husband (coffee connoisseur who's difficult to please) said the espresso was sufficiently strong and excellent.

    Chez le Pere Jules: Induldge in a Tartiflette, a Savoy favorite

    Chez le Pere Jules
    1 more image

    This was a nice little place we found in the heart of Old Annecy. With creaky old wooden walls, red and white checkerboard tablecloths and various cured meats hanging from the ceiling, the atmosphere felt distinctly Alpine (to me at least). Also, the wait staff was very friendly and offered helpful suggestions.

    Favorite Dish: The Tartiflette, native to the Savoy region, is a MUST HAVE. Essentially, it consists of a mixture of potatoes, wine, cream and meat (bacon and/or pork), all covered with a huge slab of melted Roblechon cheese. Altough it isn't going to win any health food awards, no visit to Annecy is complete without trying one, especially for cheese lovers.... Delicieux.

    Local speciality - Tartiflette

    by Kiriel Written Aug 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All through this region you will find restaurants specialising in Savoyarde food.

    Favorite Dish: The speciality of the area seems to be the dish called Tartiflette. Tartiflette consists of sliced potatoes, cream, reblochon cheese and lardons (bacon pieces) which are layered together and baked in the oven. This dish is filling and delicious and certainly very good in the cooler weather.

    Many to Choose From

    Restaurant Row

    There are many restaurants along the canal which usually display the plate du' jour, check out the menus and prices before you decide. All of the resturants had excellent wines - but then this is France!

    The Lyonnaise Hotel Restaurant had a great steak dish, can't remember what it is called, but I still remember how tender the meat was.

    On the Thiou Canal, the left side as you face the mountains, is an ice cream store that has every kind of ice cream you want to order. We made several trips there during our stay.

    Favorite Dish: ICE CREAM

    the "Freti": speciality meals with cheeses

    by sylvie-uk Updated Aug 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the freti restaurant

    the restaurant has a really warm atmosphere and offers all the cheese speciality dishes.
    the price i gave is average but it all depends on how much you ll have with the meal( wine, ect).
    you have to try "la grolle" drink as they do have it in this restaurant (see local customs).
    now, if you have a sensitive nose and are not so keen on cheese smells then you should really avoid the place as even my clothes were smelling of it when i got out.
    but what a treat for the cheese lovers!!!!!

    Favorite Dish: try "la raclette"which is some melted cheese on new potatoes accompanied of sausisson and ham or
    "fondue savoyarde" which is 5 different kind of Comte cheese melted in a pot with white wine that you eat by dipping some dry pieces of bread or
    "la tartiflette"...........................
    the all process of eating these dishes has a very sociable feel to it.

    Père Jules: Savoyard Diner à la "Jules"

    by ammonitic Written Aug 6, 2003

    Restaurant's street terrace at night

    Placed on the river banks it offers local, will say "Savoyard" dishes. For me it is as good as its neighbour but less expensive. On a warm and crowded summer evening - as shown on the foto - you need some time.

    Favorite Dish: Gratin au filets de perche: the pearches are fish from the lake, though very common in the region, but very special in this gratin together with cheese.

    Near the small like in the city itself you can find lots of nice restaurants. I don't have favourites, just try one with a nice terrace along the waterside.
    View on the water and the pretty flowers here.

    Favorite Dish: Large bread with tomatoes, cheese, ham, lettuce and a sausage. Also try a 'Crocque monsieur' or 'crocque Madame' a toasted large bread with almost the same ingredients. It tastes deliciously!

    I do not know it's name - well in those days I dodn't know VT!
    Nice setting.

    Favorite Dish: Any of the vegetarin dishes. It specialises in Italian style cuisine, so there is a lot of Pizza, pasta and so on, and also one of my favourites 'Aubergine Parmingano'. Mmmm!

    This is the open-air terrace of the Hotel Super-Panorama. The hotel is well named - the views from it's terrace are superb. It is set high above the lake by the road that climbs up into the woods.
    The views...

    Favorite Dish: Red wine! We didn't eat, we just had a few drinks and enjoyed the views. Next day we came back and did it all again!

    La Bastille was one of several restaurants that had Tartiflette on the menu, a regional dish which comes from this city.
