jacquin group
Annecy, the city of choice
for this family
since the 1950s

Beyond being the name of a company, Jacquin is above all the name of a united family whose members bring complementary expertise yet share a common vision: A love of doing things right. Well-established in the local landscape and particularly in Annecy, the family--made up of professional restaurateurs--develops its operations with customer satisfaction the ultimate goal. Strong values such as rigour and kindness, a thorough knowledge of the area, a love for Annecy and its region, well-established culinary know-how: The Jacquin family has been all this since 1949.

A family saga
since 1949

Between Annecy and Lyon, the Jacquin family has always been immersed in the restaurant business--typical bouchon lyonnais, Michelin-starred venues, brasseries--a business that reflects their collective know-how and culinary passion, transmitted from generation to generation. In 1986, the family opened its first restaurants in Annecy that have become some of the city’s icons.
