We arrived late and hungry. Good solid bistro classics, oysters, avocados, grilled fish, kidneys in mustard sauce all arrived promptly and well cooked.

Our first day in France we got off the plane, we drove to Fontainebleau, checked into our hotel, and went across the street to Chez Bernard for lunch. We sat outside and had a great view of the castle. The outside area is enclosed with large plastic panels. This is great except when people chain smoke. A woman sat at... More

We were later told that this is a restaurant for locals not tourists, but we were treated like friends and enjoyed a wonderful meal, including very good house wines. The duck was probably the best of our two weeks in France. Great service.

For me – it’s definitely one of the best restaurants in Fontainebleau! Food, service and atmosphere are just great & they do offer something a little bit special that has gone from many of the other restaurants in Fontainebleau. Over the years it’s been discreetly modernized but remains authentic & civilized with a warm atmosphere, plenty of space around the... More

Called in at Chez Bernard for lunch on a trip down memory lane to Fontainebleau with my husband and mum in law. We were greeted warmly and courteously and quickly shown to a lovely table. The dining area had a lovely atmosphere and the jazz music playing really added to the ambience. There was a wonderful choice from the la... More

After visiting the chateau, I took Rick Steves' advice and had lunch here. I had three courses, a mixed salad, the "plate of the day" which was grilled fish, and the profiteroles. Each was amazing. The salad was wonderfully prepared with fresh produce and the oil and vinegar were offered on the side so I could add just what I... More

The restaurant was almost full, but the service was still very good with a nice space between courses to allow one to enjoy each course without rushing. The food was very good , especially the No.2 oysters from Brittany ( we live in Brittany) , the presentation was good. the wine list reasonable, but the house chardonnay is to be... More

Our friend Patrick took us to this restaurant, it was by far the best meal we had in France during our two week stay. Extremely friendly staff, excellent food, and superb wine! We will be back for another meal next time we are in France!

In the nine years we have been visiting Fontainebleau neither the restaurant nor the owner has changed - FORTUNATELY! The food has always been - and still is - just first class, the ambience typically French and the service both friendly and most efficient.Located adjacent to the magnificent chateau.

A great place for lunch or dinner, with kids or without. Menu varies by season (my favorite is the wild boar in the winter). Good quality food. Menus in multiple languages.
