SUPER FROM START TO FINISH

There was only one other couple on this cold, wet, Monday night in Bourges. And we arrived as the kitchen was still finishing its own supper! This did not disconcert the pleasant young women who were on duty. An excellent table was offered. Though there were only four diners in a room capable... read more

Well, you can tell from the title why I gave our experience at Le Beauvoir a less than stellar rating. This is a nicely presented restaurant with good service and a good value menu on week nights for 16 Euros. There's a choice of two entrees, two main courses (meat or fish), and two desserts (and the night we were... More

I slept one night on Bourge and when I saw the pictures here I decided to try the restaurant. I was the only one in the restaurant - maybe because it was Wednesday 7:00 and it just opened. I had a Truffles Menu, with 5 plates. The first plate was and little consume with truffles, than and smoked fish with... More

I would have rated this restaurant four stars except...We ate there on Thursday last on a lightening trip to Southern France, and had a great meal. The review would have been five starts except for the strange lack of atmosphere, due in part to the super speedy delivery of the food. While obviously waiting for ages isn't fun, the three... More

What a gift this meal was! A bit of a walk away from the center of town was rewarded by a meal that could hold its own as superb anywhere in France or elsewhere. The newly renovated dining room is very stylish. The atmosphere was very relaxing because tables are nicely spaced, there was no canned music, and the French... More

Only in Bourges for one night in September 2012, the hotel desk suggested the recently renovated Le Beauvoir about a block away, for our evening meal. My wife and I were first to arrive, and without reservations. The receptionist accommodatingly seated us at one of the dozen or so tables. The faint odor of paint and new carpet confirmed the...

A wonderful place to dine. The entire restaurant has recently been renovated to a modern decor. The outside and inside had fresh paint and modern wallpaper and lights. The staff was superb. Extremely professional, attentive and nice. The food was amazing! Lobster bisque, bread, fish- everything was extremely tasty. They wheeled out a cart full of cheese for dessert selection.

We came here via the Bourges Tourist Office, who helped us find a fine restaurant open on a French holiday. Le Beauvoir was a delight: pretty, tables well spaced, and efficient (!) if not warm service. The amuse-bouche starting the meal was a clue to the quality of the rest - a celeriac puree with mousseline of beets. Divine. Then... More
