the food here is excellent - this is a repeat visit - but the service is still irregular: they can't seem to get it together and they don't seem to be attracting/retaining good servers. Go for the food and tolerate the service!

Our meal at Benaton was excellent. The food was delicious and original and the service was excellent. The space is intimate and very tasteful. We loved it and look forward to returning.

They appeared pretty unconcerned... More

We had same problem with reservation, we reserved for 8 and they thought it's only for 1. Maybe it's the French pronounce of huit&une, but we were lucky to have enough space that night. They have a very good wine list, we had 4 bottles big wine there, the price was very good.Comparing to the other michelin in Beaune, the... More
