Charming location with a parking lot adjacent. Starter courses of vegetarian tart and terrine pate were scrumptious. Vegetarian main dish was a hodge podge. The fish main dish was too saucy. It was a full of locals celebrating Sunday lunch.

After a long drive from Geneva we wanted a simple meal for dinner. Our hotel recommended le relais des gourmets, a short walk from our hotel. I have to admit, we were not expecting what we got. The whole meal was delicious from starter, main...More
