Nice, well prepared dinner

We enjoyed our meal as it was well prepared albeit a bit basic. The wine list was nice, but nothing spectacular. The room was homey, certainly nothing special. The staff spoke no English, but were for the most part patient. We were able to muddle through and had a nice, if not very good meal.

The restaurant specializes in grilled meats but serves other dishes. My wife prefers fish and ordered the bass, whilst I ordered the rack of lamb. Both dishes were perfectly cooked, although I would have preferred a little more seasoning on the lamb, which was nice and tender. There is a large selection of good wines, both by the bottle and...

I took my wife here for her birthday dinner on one of our two nights in Dijon. Both our meals were excellent and the staff were very helpful and spoke good English.

Delicious unpretentious meal served in a traditional setting. Excellent grilled meat on an open fire. Very tasty. Reasonable prices too.

My partner took me here for my birthday lunch. The resto specializes in grilled meat, but the escargot was amazing and so was the pink Champagne. The service was very friendly and the prices were great. Since they're in the Burgundy region, the wine list was extensive. I loved my meal and so did my partner. I'd love to go... More

we were recommended this restaurant by a nearby bar owner, (L'assommoir tome 11), if we wanted a really good French meal, we were not disappointed, a little bit formal, but good polite staff, very polite and informative, a great wine list, anything from cheap carafe wine to some great Burgundy over 600 euro's a bottle!, a lovely old building, the...

It served unpretentious traditional food at a reasonable price. We chose meat dishes - the bavette steak was tasty although a little tough.

Had a great dinner last weekend at Le Sauvage. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm, with very good service, careful presentation of the dishes and yet not pretentious. The selection from the grill is mouthwatering and really good value for money. Many locals were filling the room, which is usually a positive sign. Would definitely recommend it!
