We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel patron whose restaurant was closed when we arrived. It was fantastic! The menu is traditional and local, as are the wines. The service was excellent - efficient and friendly, and Madame was helpful in recommending local wines to accompany our meals. The food was delightful and the detail in the amuses bouches,... More

Well have to try this place for dinner sometimes, but we always make a point of having a coffee outside when we pass.

I came there to celebrate with my parents and we were wonderfully looked after - we got a round table in a quiet corner, a friendly but not overbearing service and the food was simply excellent. Presentation was beautiful with attention to detail that made it extra special - when my parents wanted to share an entry as they have... More

I had dinner here on two occasions : end of July and end of August and was astonished by the excellent quality of the food, the wonderful advice of local wine (not known by many) and by the very gracious and attentive staff. Ingredients of the meal are also carefully chosen and presentation of the whole meal is altogether wonderful.... More

After such rave reviews on TA, I proceeded to book this restaurant for a special occasion. The welcome was warm and friendly, and tables well laid out, and staff very attentive and charming - however the food was dismal, chicken was dried out, the flavour not interesting, and alot of puree this and that..... it as a Saturday night and...

We had a superb meal while travelling from France to Italy via Bourgogne's provinciale roads. Moulins is an old charming small town. The restaurant is located in a classic building not far from the Cathedral. The chef is first Class and the menù included season spécialties. Wine was also great, so much so that we bought a dozen botto to... More

we found this restaurant by chance and it turned out to be the best meal we had in the entire length of France. The woman running the restaurant was welcoming and professional as were her team, the place was spotlessly clean with some pleasant aesthetic touches to the table and the food was excellent. A really pleasant evening that made... More
