What does it mean exactly?


“À la vôtre” is a common and polite way to say “Cheers” in French. It's generally used after a toast and/or before drinking with a group of people.

It literally means “To yours” with “Yours” referring to “Your health” (Ta santé).

How to use it

In a formal context or when talking to several people, use “À la vôtre” (To yours) or “À votre santé” (To your health).
