We arrived on spec on a French national holiday lunchtime and were very lucky that a table was available. Attentive service despite a full restaurant and only 2 waiters. The food was delicious and good value, the decor and layout were interesting and the seating outside in the warmer months must be terrific. L'Amandier is the first building on the... More

The steak was sensational. I can't remember the last time I had such a succulent yet perfectly cooked steak. Great setting, especially for summer I'd imagine.

One of our party was a returner after several years having previously experienced less than good food. We will certainly revisit this great restaurant. The service was great, food excellent and the atmosphere beside the lake just topped it off! Tony and friends on holiday by the lake

Thursday Night Rosé party! Beautifull sunset. OK DJ. Good atmosphere and mix of people. Not Ibiza (yet) but best place around for a Thursday night afterwork drink.

If you want to go there to enjoy the beautiful view, just do it ! But this is the only thing you will appreciate. We were not welcomed properly... had to wait 40 minutes before being able to order..another 30 minutes to get served---- I won't go back there

My husband and I went there for dinner on a Monday night. Because it was Bastille Fay Tuesday all the dinner clients were stuck listening to inappropriate dinner music that was way too loud. I wouldn't have minded it so much if I didnt speak English but the vulgar words of the songs left me feeling like I was in... More

We went for Sunday lunch, it was a sweltering hot day and unfortunately the umbrellas didn't provide enough shade which resulted in a very sticky lunch. The food was really the big disappointment, ordered the seafood pasta which was essentially some dry pasta with some clams and mussels thrown on top. Not at all as expected. The risotto with chorizo... More

Bistrot de l'amandier is located in a stunning place, almost on the lake Annecy. It is however worth ZERO in terms of service : the waiters are rude (especially a Senior guy) and the service is very slow. Food wise, the quantities are very limited and it is far from being exceptional as the price would suggest. What a waste... More

I had been here several times, mainly to enjoy of the wonderful view and the elegant surroundings of the restaurant itself. The problem was that the food was not that good. However, with the new owners, the menu has changed, and the food has greatly improved. Had a fantastic Filet and salad, out whole table was quite pleased and anxious... More
