Charming local specialties

Although the air conditioning wasn't quite cool enough, the food and the service were excellent. We particularly wanted local dishes, and that's what we got (I had a chicken with mustard in a cheese sauce that was superb). The local wine was nice, too.

Don't be turned off by the mixed reviews (many from 2012 complaining about the staff). When we couldn't get a reservation at Le Bouchon du Palais, the hotel reception suggested L'escargot. It turned out to be the best food on our 2 week trip (including Bouchon du Palais where we ate the following evening. At 61 Euros for 2 three... More

We spent a sunny, enjoyable few days in Dijon last week. We liked this lovely Bourgogne restaurant so much that we ate there on two occasions (evening meals from the 3 course menu). Great value. The food was lovingly prepared and served politely. Great wine list, sold by bottle or carafe. Gilles and Carmen were great hosts and they took... More

Great food, reasonably priced. We had the three course fixed price menu which was well worth it and were both comfortably, if not slightly uncomfortably, full afterwards. Service was a bit

The young waitress was extremely nice and helpful, trying very hard to explain to us the menu with her limited English :) The escargots were very good. The creme brûlée was superb!

The desk at the Mercure recommended this delightful spot which is a 10 minute walk..we needed it on the way home. Escargots were perfect, but don't dare order anything but water,bubbles,or white to wash them down. Had two varieties of scallops as mains, one a mousseline, and the presentation, textures, and flavours were wonderful. Can't describe the decadent desserts because... More

We were recommended by our hotel to dine here but the night was not great. We were well looked after by a young waitress but equally treated with arrogance by an older woman. We tried the Degustation menu and it was on the whole quite ordinary. All in all I wouldn't go back again.
