Excellent food , service and ambience

Convenient for me, it was open on Sundays. I was able to make a reservation online. The food was excellent - the quality, taste and presentation, and they were served leisurely, as you would expect. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We made a reservation for 10 at this restaurant and had a SPECTACULAR meal. From the Amuse Bouche, to the Lobster Entree (appetizer), Steak Main, and Strawberry Parfait dessert. This meal was memorable and exciting. The service was impeccable. The wine list was extensive and we had a Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru and a St George Nuit - Premier Cru which... More

We went for dinner at the recommendation of the owner of the guesthouse where we stayed. The nibbles were of high quality, and so were our starters. My main course - pigeon breast - was very good but not outstanding. The main course for our daughter did not have the garnish and vegetables that we had agreed on when ordering,... More

Really enjoyed our evening at Le Benaton recently. Service was attentive while not being pretentious, while menu choices were creative and appealing. Lobster starter was spectacular, both visually and in terms of flavor. Great wine selection, including some smaller bottles for those menus that demand both white and red. Definitely the highlight of the restaurants we ate at during our... More

I'm very suspicious of * rated restaurants. Usually, the more stars they get, less food I get. And my pocket gets empty as fast as my dish. Unfortunately, Le Benaton was no exception. What a tiny starter! And can a little (believe me when I say little) piece of pigeon brest (I mean one brest; not both) be considered a... More

Terrific cooking that will definitly please you. Very convenience location within 5 minutes walk from the center of Beaune. Our Burgundian friend booked this restaurant for us. We had no clue what we were in for such a great treat. Highly recommend for everyone who visit Beaune.

Really excellent evening in this small restaurant,thoroughly deserves its accolades...from the amuse bouche onwards the food was stylish and tasty. We had good advice about the wine, a superb white Burgundy but not the most expensive! Worth a visit just outside the city walls.

A colleague and I enjoyed a small tasting menu. Each dish was executed perfectly and was delicious from the amuse bouche to the dessert. Compared to Michelin One Star restaurants in Paris the prices were sensible. The wine list had enough depth to be fun but was a bit dear. The chef actually came out and asked us how we... More

In a quiet, unassuming fashion, this restaurant was consistently spectacular on 3 consecutive nights in February 2015. Another reason to visit beautiful Beune.

Using excellent produce practically presented in a stylish manner. Traditional French cuisine prepared and presented in a modern and approachable form. A very well stocked wine cellar. Highly recommended
