The Swiss dishes we ordered were terrible. The "Croute au fromage" was a simple piece of white bread with melted Swiss cheese on top (tasted like it was all done in microwave, not the traditional recipe at all) and the risotto was made with regular...More

We stumbled upon this place, looking for a simple coffee and piece of pie, and were impressed by the construction, location and presentation. The pie was delicious. It's expensive, but probably worth it if you are going out of your way for a nice meal.

If you do not know the restaurant du Lac Retaud, you could be very surprised. Inside, the restaurant is extremely chic, and I have to say that the prices match. However, the food is far more refined than a normal mountain restaurant, although the portions...More
