Mountain restaurants/auberges in the Jura: reviews

On Sunday night, a few of us decided to go for a snowy walk and reserve a table at one of the remote auberges in the Jura.

Our experience was SOOO fantastic, that I have to give a special recommendation, and thought I'd do so by leaving space for others to rate their own experiences of mountain restaurants.

There's no website, but it's called La Genollière and is about a 30-45 minute walk from La Givrine train station.

A friend recommended this place to us and claimed that they had one of the best fondues. Against my better judgment (due to the fact that the Buvette le Vermeilley just up the road had a range of different fondues, and even had a three-in-one-pot option), we put it to the test and we have to agree. The fondue was far better than anything we've ever had before.

Also, a special insider's tip which some of you may have heard about, is to dip your bread in some kirsch (schnapps not liqueur) just before drenching it in fondue. Out of this world!

The staff here were also extremely pleasant. We were four: 3 Germans and 1 US/Canadian, and so languages were being thrown around left and right. Although they normally do not stay open on Sunday nights, we chatted with them for hours and they treated us to schnapps and wine on the house as well as a lovely jar of jam. Disclaimer: do not necessarily expect the same hospitality from them!

In terms of the ambience, it was very warm and cozy - perfect after a few hours of hiking in the cold. Candles light up the entire room and the dining room is a very personable affair. We would have stayed longer if we hadn't a train to catch.

If you do visit, tell the owners that the Canadian redhead and 3 Germans sent you
