Away from the main street in Fontainebleau we found this restaurant. We were looking for something special as it was our last night in Europe and this certainly fitted the bill. The food was delicious, the atmosphere delightful and the staff attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

This small restaurant is charming and serves great food and excellent wines. The waiters are very attentive and - as the name of the restaurant suggests, talented at pairing the wines with your meal. My colleague, who is from Argentina, ordered the plate of charcuterie as a starter and it was plentiful and delicious. 18 euros for chicken, I found... More

Using tripadvisor reviews we enjoyed a very nice meal with some excellent wine and decided to take our daughter who is a vegetarian the following week. We asked if this would be a problem and were told a nice vegetarian meal would be available. She was given salad, mashed potato and quinoa on a cabbage leaf. (All of which were... More

We just had dinner in that small restaurant. Nice location, pleasant environment, good food. A little slow, but probably we were tired to enjoy a long dinner.

A wonderful restaurant, just what you need excellent service from the owners who choose the wine for you based on the meal you are having. The food is excellent simple but perfect and the wine is exquisite. So good I went back 3 times over 4 weeks and will go back again. Excellent couldn't recommend this restaurant best in Fontainebleau.

Great food. Friendly staff. Small menu but each dish very well prepared. Reasonable price. Quaint restaurant just off Fontainebleau's Main Street.

I can definitely see the appeal of the place -- you can go, have cheese and tapas and a nice wine in a cozy setting. We had a full dinner, and I ordered beef that ended up being very overcooked, and then replaced with an inferior cut of meat (they ran out of what I'd ordered, was the explanation). They... More
