A real find!

Well, there we were in Bourges trying to find a decent restaurant on a Monday night, which, based on previous experience, can be a bit of a challenge. It proved to be so again. We tried a couple of the best rated restaurant on the Trip Advisor website but both were closed while a few others we... read more

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel owner. We had the fixed price Gourmet Menu which consisted of three courses, cheese and dessert. The 23 Euro bottle of Sancerre Rose' was recommended and paired well with our courses. Although we showed up with no reservation at opening time, we were promptly seated and treated as if we were long time... More

Dinner on Sat. night was not hurried but the service was prompt when needed. Entre was gazpacho centered by smoked salmon mousse covered with smoked ham. Not your usual gazpacho but very tasty. Charolais beef was perfectly prepared (mine was rare, wife's medium rare and there was a clear difference). Rest of the plat was good mixture of flavors and... More

(If it isn't I want to find it). Turned up at 7.30 on spec and got a table- on a midweek evening- and were lucky; the place soon had every table full. A lovely top menu; well priced; wine good but possibly a little expensive for France; excellent service and a thoroughly nice evening even down to the quiet background... More

Turning up at the last moment to a packed restaurant they nonetheless found us a space. Food is excellent, beautifully presented and thoroughly French. Do not come here if you don't like ducks though. The menu always includes duck (including foie gras) and the walls are covered with shelves of duck figurines. Wine list is varied and good value. Service... More

Well-prepared French dishes, with occasional flashes of real flair and creativity. Had the menu gourmand, with the foie gras, the turbot (delicious though could have cooked a minute less), the cheeses and desert. I chose the Savarin, drowned wonderfully in mead. They forgot to bring the salad; I couldn't bear to point it out to them.

Have visit this restaurant several times. As always the food and service was excellent. Good taste and presentation and just enough. The wine list has some good options at reasonable price. Top value

This was our best meal in France on this visit, and best service – so silky smooth and charming. Front of house was owner with husband as chef in the kitchen and we suspect one of the two waiting girls was her daughter. Le Bourbonnoux is a small but perfectly formed place - deleightful decor and i loved the collection... More

We went on the recommendation of the B&B owner and were not disappointed. Wonderful service, bilingual, superb food. You can't go away hungry.
