We followed previous reviewers advice and booked a couple of weeks ahead to be sure of a table on a Saturday lunch time, which is now the only day they are open for lunch. They were fully booked when we got there. We received a relaxed and friendly welcome from the chef's wife and service was excellent throughout. The food... More

We were really thrilled with the meal we had at Au Pourqoui Pas - Dijon is known for its service being closer to Parisian standards (not always very polite), but this restaurant has great service and friendly staff.

Excellent meal in Dijon at Au pourquoi pas. Friendly service, and every dish was beautifully presented. Lots of fish and game choices, all elegantly prepared and delicious. The desserts were also great. For the quality of the food, the price was reasonable.

My partner brought me to Pourquoi Pas for my birthday and it was a real treat. The dishes were beautifully presented and absolutely danced on one's palate. The service was impeccable - the best service I've experienced in all of France, and even Europe. All that in a really romantic setting, within a classy and unpretentious restaurant. All that taken... More
