This restaurant, in a restored vineyard cabin, awarded its second Michelin star in 2012, is right on the famous cru Marestel vineyard slope with a view down the vineyards to Jongieux and the Rhône River. You can eat outside on a large terrace or in the vaulted stone restaurant. Owners, chef Mickaël Arnoult and his wife, had previously worked at a famous restaurant in the Alpine resort of Megève, and when they took over this restaurant a few years back they quickly gained a reputation here for their fine quality cuisine, which is fairly modern in style. The wine list has a good selection from the immediate locality including various vintages from Domaine Dupasquier (situated only metres away), as well as a decent selection from other classic French regions. Service and atmosphere is a little cold, but enjoy the food and the setting – it’s the only gastronomic restaurant in the heart of real Savoie wine country.

Useful information: Menus: €48-€105. Closed all day Monday and Tuesday. Closed for the month January.
