We were looking for a cosy place for lunch and stumbled across this restaurant. It was around 13h00 and packed. We went back 20 minutes later and were able to have a nice table for two by the window. A lovely cosmopolitan feel about the place, nicely decorated with the food and drinks menus on large blackboards on the walls.... More

They have about 7 items to choose from in small portion sizes. You get 4 choices for about 14 euros, 5 for 15.5 euros (from memory) which is then enough for a decent meal. Pros: will take orders relatively late (past 2PM). Great if you are in a hurry - service was very quick even though the place was full.... More

Stumbled upon this little gem in the centre of an otherwise grey village on Lake Leman. Small but cozy space complemented by a warm welcome and a smart ambience. The concept of choosing "tapas" to mix-match your own dish is refreshing - and extremely tasty. Everything tasted fresh, notwithstanding the tiny kitchen they had to work from. Certainly worth a...

With daily concoctions of fresh juices, ranging from melon-raspberry to orange-papaya-kiwi, single-grove coffees, and emphasis on local, healthful products, Fernand & Cie is a destination worth putting on your itinerary, whether you reside nearby or are travelling through the area to visit the Évian/Chamonix region. The owners are friendly, dynamic, and upbeat, and the location feels like you’re spending a... More
