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

When visiting 3-star restaurants I have high expectations for the type of dishes that will be served. Astrance, is an intimate venue seating approximately 26 people in a modern setting. The staff are friendly and attentive. The 7 course "Suprise" menu is paired with wine for 350 Euros, which is pretty much the going rate for high-end restaurants. The evening... More

This was our 3rd attempt trying to get a table at this small restauarant over the last 12 months. The food quality, presentation and service was above par. We chose the 5 course menu for lunch and I feel that's the right amount. I seen a few diners struggling to complete their 7 course meal which I think is too... More

The meal fell down mainly on the restaurant trying to be too clever. Every dish needed explanation, every wine choice was designed specifically to be unusual and was only drinkable with the food, not on its own. They obviously had talent, some of the dishes were incredible, but the talent was wasted. why extract all of the flavour from a... More

We had dinner with my wife in this small restaurant (few tables so booking is a journey), looking tiny and "de quartier" from outside, with modern, clean, comfortable, spacious settings inside. Once comfy, you can enjoy a real culinary trip, relying on excellent service with people acting as a real team, with warmth and the necessary touch of empathy. We... More
