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

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
