I admit, this was the first Michelin-starred restaurant of any kind that I've eaten in and my expectations were extremely high. I can't imagine anywhere else (outside of NYC) I would spend a significant amount of money on to eat a meal other than Paris, and so I reserved a table for 4 for lunch (2 months in advance, making...

It was meant to be a marvelous dining experience. One that we had been looking forward to for months Amazing reviews and 3 Stars what else other than a brilliant meal was what we anticipated. We went for the evening 7 course offering paired with wine. The actual experience was very very poor to say the least. The four of... More

It is the type of restaurant that you don't go for the setting or the service (both of which were great). You go for the food. I can only recommend this restaurant to the more adventurous eaters. You don't choose the menu. You pick the number of courses you'd like to have and then the magic begins. One after another... More

For 3 star Michelin, the price for lunch is not expensive. We had second level lunch, four courses, without wine, and its 150 euro. Food good and interesting, quite asian style. Service not bad. Compare to other french restaurant, you can totally relax here.

We discovered the talent of the chef Barbot some years ago, when he was 1 star, 2 stars and yesterday we had a lunch there, where he won his 3d star! The delicious food and intelligence of his kitchen made us dream for so long, but it's really so complicated to get a table (there are only 25 guests), you... More

Words won't come easy.This is a real experience in itself. first of all the owner of this 3-Star Michelin restaurant for many years in a row have decided to only work 4 days a week and with only 25 guests for lunch and dinner. In other words, they have chosen to be in this NOT for the money since the... More

After spending six pleasant biking days in Burgundy where we enjoyed the terrain, food and wine, we decided to treat ourselves to a meal at this restaurant that we were told was great by people that really appreciate haute gastronomy. Regardless of reputation, the place really doesn’t deserve the recognition that it gets. Menu is meager and the service was... More

Went for the 3 course lunch menu at 70 euros a head. Food was very creative and innovative for the appertiser and the dessert. There is a strong Asian influence with the use of lemongrass, sago, Asian soup flavors- this suggest strong creativity and fully deserves the 3 star michelin ranking. What let down the meal was that the service... More

My wife took me to the Astrance to celebrate my birthday last year because it seems that they had picked up the third Michelin star that Taillevent had lost (we used to love Taillevent.) The restaurant is tiny, and they put us upstairs on a mezanine with barely enough headroom. Then the food came; different dishes with no choice. I... More
