Amazing experience at this very small restaurant. Fine dining at its best, tasty and imaginative food. Superb wines that are not over priced. I visit this town, just to eat here.

Normally I would not review a restaurant where I had not eaten but thought I should share this experience. We arrived at Le Benaton at 7:55 for our 8pm reservation. We were left standing at the door awkwardly as there is no host or hostess. We were shown our table with an abrupt and dismissive hand wave without even a... More

We have eaten at 2 Two Star and 1 Three Star Michelin restaurants in the last 3 years and this ranks with a 3. They had just been visited by raters before we were there and waiting for the review. Sure they will be disappointed, but keep trying as we found zero negatives. The menu was varied and challenged the... More

Devine is the word I would use to describe lunch at Le Benaton. The foie gras presentation offered was the most unique I've ever had (and I've had a lot). The popcorn on top was creative and enhanced the flavor and texture of the foie gras The duck breast was excellent and perfectly prepared. I also had a small lobster... More

Out of a 6 day trip, this was by far and away the best meal we had in France. Everything was perfect, and the rack of lamb cooked on hay was the sweetest, juiciest, most flavoursome piece of lamb I have ever eaten. We loved EVERYTHING about this place, and even though our favourite restaurant in the world is the... More

Each course was beautiful to look at as well as to eat. Hard to recommend specifics since menu changes daily. Well worth stopping Jb Beaune just to eat here. Reservations essential. chchanges daily.

This restaurant has a beautiful outside courtyard and our three course meal was divine. My husband had the pigeon for main course which was outstanding and I had salmon which was delicious. A really lovely little restaurant.

We had a special lunch here, with imaginative pairings for the day's menu in the amuse bouche and the starter and the entre. The waitstaff was solicitous but not in the way. A menu in English was offered, an unexpected touch.

Small restaurant with a handful of tables. Chef owner Bruno Monnoir served us our plates and explained the contents. The salmon was absolutely done to perfection with a great sauce. The chef was a little tense that evening but aside from that a wonderful experience.

We went there on our last night in Beaune having done a few Michelin Star resturants already. So we were a bit jaded ,boy were we blown off our feet.
