We were staying in Dijon and our apartment building was just a few steps away from this restaurant. The restaurant was packed every time we walked by and I can understand why. We stopped to make dinner reservations one day but sadly they were booked up for the next couple of nights so we decided to have a late lunch.... More

Exceptional location in front of the Palais des Ducs de Bourgogne, in the historic heart of the city, and friendly welcome. Father and son together for a gastronomic, highly tasty, both classical and creative food (1 star Michelin), based on first choice local products. Impressive wine list (Burgundy in pole position) with a sharp sommelier. Le Pré aux clercs is... More

We pre-booked a table at this restaurant as we were told it is one of the best in Dijon, known for only using local ingredients for an authentic Burgundy taste experience. My wife noticed that the cutlery is well used, a good sign, according to her ! We started with their well-known snails in wine sauce, although we love the... More

I arrived from Zurich feeling tired and very hungry. This restaurant is guaranteed to lift the spirits. The lunch menu was reasonably priced (32 euros) and the food and service excellent. Entrée was a haddock salad with saffron, main a magret de canard, a great dessert of strawberries all accompanied by local Villages wines. And there was no difficulty with... More

We stayed in a flat with two other couples and looking for a place to have dinner on our second night settled on Le Pre aux Clercs. Turned out to be our favorite restaurant of our 2.5 week vacation. Patrice and the staff were wonderful and the food and wine of equal quality. When it rained on Saturday we found... More

Looking for a snack for lunch after visiting the Ducal Palace in Dijon we were attracted by the crisp white tablecloths and sunshades of Le Pre Aux Clercs so decided to gIve it a try. Ordered only the foie gras, a glass of wine and a dessert but were treated to a four course lunch consisting of "bouche amusee #1"... More

We made our reservation online on the restaurant's website. We were two families travelling with 3 children under 12 and did not speak French. The service staff was great - we arrived earlier than the opening time and was allowed to wait in a little corner room - fortunate as it started to rain just after we arrived. Even though... More

My girlfriend and i tried the lunch menu for just 32 euros yesterday, and it was a very good experience, but nothing extraordinary. The food was excellent, especially for the price, and it was very cozy sitting right at the Liberty square (and still feeling private). Noteworthy comments: The wine was great, and very cheap! (5-7e per glass) Very friendly... More
