Eating

Annecy has a fine selection of French and Savoyard restaurants, plus a smattering of Italian, Asian and Middle Eastern options. High-density dining areas include the quays on both sides of the Canal du Thiou; rue de l'Île, rue Ste-Claire and rue du Faubourg Ste-Claire, south of the canal; and pedestrianised rue du Pâquier, north of the canal.

Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays are common days for restaurants to close their doors, so check ahead.
