Les Morainières
Jongieux (10 min)

Our favourite, to be done for a special occasion, but to be done at least once, it's only happiness!

A haven of peace and indulgence, this address is very good value for money for a Michelin starred restaurant (Tasting menu at 90 euros per person - but with about 8 courses...)

Just remember to book in advance, especially in high season and at weekends (at least 15 days - 3 weeks in advance)
