It is a small charming restaurant with some very modern French dishes which are presented beautifully.Once again we had a very positive experience this week when we returned with our group.The service was excellent with very helpful staff.The wine list has plenty...

We started our trip to Burgundy by eating in this Michelin-starred restaurant. The food was memorable, and my langoustine with peach starter was perhaps the food highlight of the trip. Good wine on the recommendation of the sommelier. The restaurant space is small and the tables quite close together. The waiter told us that over 80% of the punters are... More

We first visited this restaurant in 2011, on our first trip to Beaune, and had a spectatular and impressive meal. Returning in 2014, we were a bit dismayed to see mostly the same dishes being served (for example, the foie gras raspberry ball) and the service to be stumbling through the basics. It's certainly ridiculous to complain about having too... More

First, I need to say, we enjoyed really great food. However, it was not a perfect night in Beaune. The major problem was the wine, and here we are in Burgundy - my favourite wine region at all. The wine selection was quite restricted and the sommelier - it's really a compliment to calll him like this - did not... More

of this charming restaurant. We had expected to eat on la terrasse with them, alas, the weather was against us but had been told, on booking, that even if it rained there would be pas de probleme with the dogs inside. And there wasn't. And the meal was superb - inventive, thoughtful and beautifully timed. Attentive but not obtrusive service... More

At 7 pm sharp, the maître d' unlocked the front door of this hole in the wall restaurant in a somewhat seedy part of town. We walked in, and after he deigned to get off the phone, he assigned us one of the tiny tables for two. I insisted on one of the two larger, round tables, and he grudgingly... More

Reservation is advisable. This is reliably done on-line as telephone booking can be less certain. Table service is swift and attentive, if a little fussy and pretentious, which tended to set the overall mood and atmosphere. My fish was perfectly cooked; moist and flavoursome. My husband's beef fillet was good but not remarkable for this class of restaurant. With only... More

Really enjoyed the food here whilst we stayed in Beaune. A good selection of menus to choose from, great wine list and very efficient staff. Only missing part was the lack of personality/character....but overall the food made up for this.

Cardinal rule for good dining: the right wine for me and the food! This Michelin rated restaurant let me down horribly by not offering any choice at all, beyond red or white, for wine by the glass with my dinner. I am traveling alone, so that precludes a bottle, or even a half bottle if it is for the one... More
