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

Everything you would expect from a Michelin * restaurant. Food was fantastic and the wine (mainly local) was also reasonably priced for its quality. Service was good, without being formal or stuffy, though some might think it was a little slow (the restaurant was full when we were there). If I were being very picky I would note the fact... More

A small restaurant in Beaune just off the ring road. Exquisite food, the tête de veau with langoustine is worth the journey alone. We have been using this restaurant approx twice a year since it opened & have never been disappointed.

The service & attention to details were spot-on. The bottle of local white wine was served relatively cold as we like it. The amuse bouche was almost the highlight of the meal: Intensely flavored mushroom soup--we would have been happy to go home if we could have a big bowl of it. A salad was beautifully presented with an aubergine... More
