The Michelin-starred restaurant

of Chef Jean Sulpice

There are strong ties between Jean Sulpice and its terroir. On and under water, in the heart of forests, beyond mountains; the rich and fertile environment of the Savoies is a perpetual source of inspiration. A chef who cares about the rythm of nature, attentive to the seasons, driven by an irrepressible curiosity, he explores his territory as far as his desires take him. A constant search for purity, for a nature story to tell at his table. By sitting down at his restaurant, you agree to take a route of a fantastic epic that is nonetheless rooted in reality. Following the leading Chef, let the path of wonder and discovery open to you; between lakes and alpine pastures.

A gastronomic cuisine

rooted in its territory

The Savoyard territory gives it rythm and life, responsible and nature-friendly, his cuisine – in his starred restaurant – expresses itself, changes, evolves on the shores of Lake Annecy. Daily research, the right measure of the seasons, the strict selection of products are essential to honour and create the most noble form of the Savoies in the plate. For a sustainable gastronomy – rewarded by the Michelin guide – the Chef can count on the local producers, passionate and committed in the search for taste, in the quest of precision. As all beings in nature form a never-ending magical ballet, he follows the tumult of his terroir. He comes to capture the most beautiful energies, singular encounters, unique arrangements; narrowing the space between earth and us a little more.

Between lake and mountains

an exceptional environment

To the sound of the delicate lapping of water in the open air on the terrace, or in winter inside the restaurant, captivated by the beauty of rocks and white forests reflecting on the surface of water, you are here, at the centre of a natural, authentic coliseum. With a lover, friends or family, take a seat; your itinerary on the Alpine slopes that the Chef is so fond of begins. The gastromic restaurant of Jean Sulpice – 2 stars in the Michelin guide, 18.5/20 in the Gault&Millau guide – is in harmony with the sumptuous outdoors. Facing the lake, comfortably surrounded by the Semnoz and the Forclaz, kindly watched over by the Tournette. A fascinating panoramic view, where one does not mind not looking away, opens up to you.

Permanent homage to the surrounding nature with remarkable and essential milestone dishes like the Cueillaison – a dish declined in many ways, in harmony with the seasons – the Esprit d’un Alpage, white dome of Beaufort, a true chalice joigning the mountain pastures and the maturing cellars. The Matelote of Lake Annecy, delicious odyssey to discover the depths of the lake. The Omble Épicéa, climax of a certain harmony between forest and lacustrine elements.
