This restaurant really is our local. We are lucky to be surrounded by many good restaurants and to have one just a bike ride away that serves great traditional French cuisine, including Savoyarde dishes in great surroundings with views over the Jura mountains is a real bonus. The Auberge de la Fruitière has a good size dining room and a great terrace area, easy parking and is open for lunch every day apart from Wednesday and is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. This restaurant is run by a friendly couple, Anne-Sophie is front of house greeting and serving diners whilst her husband Stephane creates great and innovative dishes in the kitchen.
Lunchtimes are normally very busy, they serve a great ‘plat du jour’ which is popular with the locals and it is a good idea to book. The menu is varied enough to be interesting whilst also not so extensive as to question if it is fresh and cooked to order. Their menu reflects the changing seasons, for example in the autumn we have enjoyed some great food from ‘la chasse’ seasonal hunting produce: wild boar stews and pâtés, hare, goat to name a few. From my experience so far everything I have tried has been great value for money, freshly baked or cooked and has been delicious.
