Not many French restaurants are like this. A real taste of the Jura. Great for a trencherman. Great tasting local food at really good value prices. The portions are generous. Local specialities reign. Do not be afraid to go for a menu with fewer than 4 courses. The Comte fondue is worth a visit and is a complete meal on... More

Restaurant which serves local food almost exclusively. We liked the fondue very much. One of the kids didn't like the food, the other one loved it. They don't have the usual kids menu.

This restaurant seems like the place you would take tour groups. Very heavy food that has a semi-industrial quality. Very nice staff, and it isn't expensive. I looked at the other peoples' ratings, and found it a little disheartening that this mass market place got same notes as much better restaurants in Arbois!

The menu is extensive. The food is OK although the presentation is pretty poor. Think quite nice chicken or fish drowned in various sauces. Raymond Blanc comes from this neck of the woods and I think he d hang his head in shame if he came in here. But if you re looking for cheap regional stuff and want to... More

Went there on a Saturday for lunch. The food is good and local (meaning a bit heavy too). We had the 4 course menu which was really reasonably priced and the 4 glasses of wine combo for 10 euros. Lunch took 3 hours but it was great.

It is another Bank Holiday today in France (Monday, May 16), and plenty of people are out and about-including children, dogs, locals, tourists, etc. Several restaurants were full, and La Finette let us share a long table with another two people. People kept streaming in-many without reservations sent on. Informal, inexpensive, heavy local specialties, this was a little too blue... More

As our hotel restaurant was closed on the Monday evening we visited we ended up in this authentic restaurant, and this turned out to be a good choice. There is a good choice of local dishes, individually or in various fixed price menus, and they also have English versions if you need them. Our food was very tasty, as was... More

Following recommendations from friends in the Jura region and Trip Advisor reviews, I planned my dad's 80th family lunch at La Finette. Our party selected local dishes of Salade Franc Comtoise for starter and a variety of chicken or beef with "morilles" and vin jaune. My partner and I shared a "fondue", melted Comté cheese one picks up with bread;... More

Loved it. We were two the three other tables habitated between 18 to 24 people, each one eating like a Darfur refugee with big plates. Local kitchen- Fondue, smoked pig etc.. Delicious.

Nice interior, staff very friendly. Food is good and priced well. Great experience. Only one negative point : they have many tables, so waiting time is slightly long.
