Le Saint Pelerin is one street removed from the Yonne. The food is excellent. Some of the interior decoration is tacky but somehow it still feels right: As everywhere in Burgundy it seems, the wine is expensive and you end up paying €100 for two menues a bottle of wine and two aperitif.

The menu choice was not large, but was a good range. all was perfectly cooked and presented. Lunch times it gets fully booked, so we ate in the evening, and for a rainy May evening it was till reasonably busy. Our 2, three course meals with a bottle of wine and Martini to start was 84€,

The owner has no sense of service or accomodation to his clients and their needs and wishes. We had a reservation but we knew within minutes of arriving that we were not welcome. We were relegated to the back room (behind the kitchen!) where there was virtually no-one - and past many free tables out front. We asked for a... More

I had the pork casserole with the creamy mashed stuffed potato with local cheeses to follow all washed... More

France seems to have gone "fine dining" in recent years, there is a Michelin star on every corner. A good honest rustic restaurant is a welcome sight. The room is unassuming although the wood burning grill on view as you walk in is an encouragement. The menu was regional with good local dishes to explore but the main event was... More

In preparation for our trip around France I had taken a copy of a 2010 article from Practical Motorhome entitled Grand Tour Burgundy. When we found ourselves in Auxerre I remembered that the writer, Sarah, had discovered "a fabulous place down a backstreet, called Restaurant le Saint Pelerin" to celebrate her birthday. We sought it out and were delighted to... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel and it lived up too all expectations. The food was excellent and so was the service. We would return again when we return to Auxeere. The food was typically French.
