  • La Cave: The best french wine and great snacks

    by norwegianwine Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had 3 wonderful evenings at this great place for wine connoisseurs and just plain wine lovers. A large selection of wines on the menu and even more in the cellar! The two owners are knowledgable and can pick the best wines for your taste. The atmosphere is relaxed, down to earth and un-snobbish. Indoor or outdoor seating in a small alley off the beaten path. You´ll go back to the hotel (as we did) full of taste and dreams. We would recommend to try out the Coteaux du Loir 2004 and the Savigny-Les-Beaune 1999. Also they have a great selection of cheeses and hams which was enough for a late night dinner or snack. Website: www.barlacave.com

    Favorite Dish: Coteaux du Loir 2004 and the Savigny-Les-Beaune 1999

  • 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...

    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.

    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!

    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!

    La salle des gardes: Une agréable surprise

    by Klod5 Written Nov 4, 2006

    Restaurant : La salle des gardes

    Il y a de nombreux restaurants dans le vieil Annecy, surtout dans la partie la plus touristique de la ville, le long des canaux.
    Totalement au hasard, nous avons testé pour vous La Salle des Gardes, près du Palais de l'Isle, et ce fut une très agréable surprise; Dans une maison du XIII ème siècle qui était autrefois la salle de repos des gardes de la prison, les salles du restaurant, toute en pierre de taille, sont superbes.
    Nous avons choisi deux menus gastronomiques, à 26 euros, et une bouteille d'un excellent vin du pays. Les plats proposés sont typiquement savoyards, avec donc du fromage presque tout le temps. De la cuisine gouteuse, spécifique, typique. Le service à été très rapide malgré affluence.

    Nous vous recommandons donc ce restaurant !

    There are many restaurants in the old Annecy, especially in the most tourist part of the city, along the channels.
    Completely at random, we tested for you The Room of the Guards, close to the Palace of the Isle, and it was a very pleasant surprise; In a house of the XIII ème century that was once the room of rest of the guards of the jail, the rooms of the restaurant, all in ashlar, are superb.
    We chose two gastronomic menus, to 26 euros, and a bottle of an excellent wine of the country. The proposed dishes are typically from Savoie, with therefore of cheese nearly the whole time. Of the tasty, specific, typical kitchen. The service at very fast summer in spite of affluence.

    We recommend you this restaurant therefore!

    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!

  • Mamie Lise: A Gordon Ramsay Nightmare!

    by Lindap2733 Written Sep 23, 2009

    We were in Annecy for just a couple of nights and had already had a sample of the local fare at Le Petit Zinc. This had been great - atmosphere, service and food excellent. So we were unprepared for this restaurant which, by constrast, was absolutely awful.

    We went for a set meal at just under 19 euros, and the rather disinterested waiter tried to explain what the dishes consisted of when we asked.

    The starter was served on a pretentious piece of slate and was a salad with mozarella, melon, parma ham and tomatoes. The salad was dressed with something that tasted medicinal and my mozarella had seen better times. I then had 'choucroute' - a local peasant dish, and to be honest, it was probably just a bad choice on my behalf because it was loads of nasty warmish sauerkraut, two boiled potatoes and selection of the fattiest, most unappetising sausage I have ever seen. My partner had the trout - which was passable - but the acroutrements of rice and a vegetable (we couldn't tell what it was), were terrible - overcooked and disgusting.

    Oh well, you live and learn, so when we chose apple clafoutis for dessert, we really felt that they couldn't do much to that. Wrong! It was inedible. Needless to say, we won't be going back!

  • La Salle des Gardes: Disappointed

    by smashing Written Jun 9, 2008

    Was not very impressed by this restaurant. We had the 'plat du jour' - Croute Savoyade. Bread was very hard as though it had been heated up in a mircowave. Ham and cheese very dry. In all it was inedible. Dessert - winberry tart - must have been bought at one of the cheap supermarkets, as it had an awful taste. Service very slow even though we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time. Will certainly not go back.

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