Dreary day in Vezelay, but the lunch made up for it. Warm welcome, efficient service, exquisite food. It's why you go to restaurants, right?

As we were refused at another restaurant in town, my wife and 3 small children tried this restaurant at 13h45 in late August. The welcome was warm and we were swiftly given a nice table in the nearly empty restaurant (the french usually have lunch earlier). We opted for the kids menu which consisted of chicken/fish and pasta/fries and vegetables... More

Going by previous reviews, we booked a table (via email) for lunch. We were welcomed with enthusiasm as we entered, and the service was impeccable from that moment onwards. We opted for the 28€ menu! which was starter, main and either cheese or a desert. The food was outstanding, from the amuse bouche (rabbit terrine), through to the filet steak,... More

Four of us celebrated at lunch at Le Bougainville. We were attracted by the many awards for excellence. It is not a fancy restaurant, but it is tastefully decorated and the owner and her staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Three of us ordered full Menus and the fourth ordered a Plat. All were highly pleased with the selections, quality... More

Typical French place that serves local fair at a quality slightly above average. Many French tourists eat here, some families with young kids, especially at lunch. The owner lady has decorated the restaurant with flowers and will great you in a friendly yet efficient way.

Half way up the hill to the Basilica, is this cute restaurant. We made a reservation for lunch and went sightseeing. Came back and our table for six was ready. Everything was prepared well and very delicious. For the entree, I had sautéed sweet breads in a salad encircled with gingerbread toasts, very good! For the main course, pork cheeks,... More

Our B and B owner recommended this restaurant to us, and we were quite pleased. The prices were good, the food was amazing, and the service was quick. We couldn't have asked for anything better!

Half way up the hill in Vezelay lies 'Le Bougainville'. Peering in through the window it looked tiny and we weren't optimistic that we'd get in. Luckily the restaurant opens out into another room at the back and whilst not big did have a table for two free. The staff were really friendly; we started to order and were told... More
