My second visit was even better than my first last November. This is a small informal restaurant frequented by locals - including the vignerons - and cognoscenti. Limited but perfectly judged menu on the blackboards and a wine list to die for - and not all if it Burgundian. The owner is a wine man through and through and keeps... More

The pork scratches on the table are best avoided, very fatty and cold, but a part from that there is nothing not to like about this place. Small, welcoming, warm, rustic with a fantastic wine list, some good back vintages, and the food is what it's supposed to be: well prepared, honest, rustic food. All the classics were on the... More

A small restaurant that has limited opening times and a great wine list. The food is delicious and full of savour (in portions that are reasonable and leave room for later courses). A charming welcome (those isolated reviewers who criticise are probably getting what they offered), efficient and unintrusive service and a menu on the wall that changes regularly.Although we...

My husband and I were recommended this restaurant. We have traveled the world and dined at some of the best restaurants so we thought when our friends recommended this, we were in for a treat. ABSOLUTELY NOT! We sat down tonight (in February, the off season) and asked for the wine list (Note: we were recommended here for their extensive... More

On a price/value basis, it's a dead heat between the fabulous wine list here and the one at La Beaugraviere in Mondragon. This one is obviously best at Burgundy, though a Rhone lover could spend a lifetime here(and, even at their modest prices, a fortune as well). The food, simple Burgundian fare perfectly prepared by Fabienne Escoffier, is a joy.... More

Book your reservations BEFORE you arrive in Beaune, because owners Fabienne (chef) and Pierre (front of house) Escoffier operate with the certainty that any unbooked tables will no doubt be filled by passing winemakers, collectors, foodies and international celebrities in the course of the evening. That said, if you are lucky enough to land a table (it helps to have... More

This restaurant is famous for it's well-priced extensive wine list. Being a wine person, I thought I have to try ! After I moved to Beaune, I have been trying to make a reservation for many times, and after 4 months I finally got a table for two at the second round of dinner( start aroud 8:30-9PM). It was cosy,... More

We ate here 2 times over the 5 days. Reservations are a must. The menu which is displayed on a large chalk board has just about everything you might desire, meat, duck, fish,chicken and everything simply and beautifully prepared. . The wine list is a masterpiece. No question to find the wine you want and the price as well. Save... More

This is one of those gems you love to find when traveling. It was recommended to us by a wine buyer who goes to the region regularly. The food was delicious, simple and perfectly prepared. The foie gras and beef bourguignon were transcendent (as a friend would say). The staff are helpful and friendly even if they don't all speak... More

Our dinner at Ma Cuisine was terrific. The food was Burgundian classics cooked well (I thought the food was better at Caves Madeleine - splitting hairs to be honest). The wine list is an embarrassment of riches - so many great choices at prices we never see in the US. Stemware is a bit lacking and the service wasn't great.... More
