So impressed with this restaurant, if time allowed we would repeat. Our meal was superb. Others have commented it has been the best meal yet in France and we would have to agree. Could not fault a thing, either with the service or the meal. The restaurant serves a modern take on tradition French food. Beautifully presented, the food is... More

Charming small restaurant in Beaune. The atmosphere is lovely-small and intimate and decorated with a modern touch. Enough about that-it is the food and service that really count in a restaurant. We were there during morel and frog leg season and one dish particularly stand out in my mind. The frog legs with morels was possibly the best dish I... More

Really good little restaurant with excellent food, service and all at reasonable prices. Central location but not a tourist trap like some of the others. Go try it out.

This restaurant is superb. The wine list could squash a small child. Very very good. I had the steak and my wife got the pork. Of course we got wine that was half the cost of the bill but it was fantastic. The waitress was very attentive and patient.

After several weeks in France searching for some innovative food, we finally found it on our last night in Beaune. Thomas Compagnon has been able to elevate the traditional Burgundy dishes into more exciting fare. His presentation will delight you and his flavours entice you. We shared the tuna/mustard starter which was divine and then moved onto the pigeon and... More

We have been 4 times to l'Ecusson over the past few years and always had a nice experience. The dishes are very well presented and combine traditional Burgundy's specialties with modern 'twists', which is absolutely enjoyable. The service is friendly and professional. I must regret that the cheeses trolley is not offered any longer, because I experienced it twice and... More

A good atmosphere, great table settings. Sadly it was raining so we could eat out in the garden. The food here is very good, true one-star quality. A must order is; their seared tuna with tuna tartar served with mustard ice cream that is delightful. Furthermore their treatment of wild mushrooms is excellent, each dish is well presented and very... More

We made a reservation on a Monday night and probably didn't need to. The service was excellent, however we like to be left alone, if you are high maintenance you may be disappointed, but European servers tend to be more hands off generally I find. The escargot was amazing, as was the filet, my personal favorite had to be the... More
