We came here with a very high expectation, due to the 2 stars. Fish was ok but not more...In my opinion at least a good piece of meat needs to be in the menue. The taste of the courses was not always convincing. Unfortunately this experience was disappointing, especially for this high price.

Great atmosphere, nice set up in the dining room. We chose the menu decouvert with a bottle of Alsacian pinot, fish was very tender and the duck was very juicy. Waiters are able to communicate in English which was an exception. A pleasant journey in Dijon.

My wife and I made reservations at Restaurant William Frachot based on its two Michelin stars and TripAdvisor reviews. The waiters spoke English and were attentive almost to a fault. My wife ordered the discovery menu for 78€, and I ordered à la carte. Of course, we tasted each other’s courses as they were served. Not only was each course... More

Booked weeks ahead for dinner. High class formal setting and top service. Go for tasting menu and very nice presentation and tasty courses. Big range of top wines too to match. Will return and recommend.

Been there couple of weeks ago. French kitchen, the way they used to do it in the 90ies, way too much, overloaded with flavours, no discreet elegance. Crement was very nice, wine wasn't that great (compared to other places I had wine in Dijon). Service was impeccable. Design of the Restaurant is atrocious. Sad, because I was expecting a lot.

Loved everything about this restaurant - the food was really top notch, and the staff extremely attentive. Our 10 year old daughter had a starter and a cheese plate which worked for her! Presentation all you would expect from a restaurant at this level and the Foie Gras was to die for. All in all, probably the best food in... More

We were on a canal cruise and this stop was our chef's night off. (Although our good fortune was he came with our group to dinner here.) The food was creatively plated and presented. The space was interesting. However...the food was rather bland. My husband and I had different items and neither of us were impressed. The food prepared by... More

Paying EUR 150 per person for the food part of our dinner was about 33% too much. The amuses were amply but rather tasteless. The sauce accompanying the cote de veâu and the chanterelles were both terribly salty, double dosed. The worst part was the soufflé which was tasting eggy and not airy at all as it should be, so...

The food and service were excellent. We started with a tomato and gazpacho surprise. The upper serving was a tastily prepared tomato. Hidden in a bowl beneath the tomato plate was the gazpacho - anything but traditional.The entrees were a fish and meat and were outstandingly prepared. The service was gracious. We're in the camp that says the restaurant well... More
