Wandered in the restaurant by chance, and boy! we are happy we did !! The service was lovely & the food, fresh and delicious. Bonus, they were super accomodating to our 5yr old, his lunch menu was as beautiful and tasty as ours ! And they accept dogs ! All in all, a superb experience and an address to retain.

Le Bistrot is located in 31 r. de Strasbourg, in the old town of Chalon-sur-Saône. The red coloured facade, an interesting menu and a pleasant atmosphere got our attention. And we were not dissapointed, neither by the service nor the food. And luckily, the street is one of far too few streets in the towns and villages in Bourgogne without... More

We were lucky to wander in at 7:30 and get a table. Everything from the food to the presentation to the atmosphere was unique and delightful. The set menu was very reasonable at about 22€ and the wine list was extensive. Would definitely return - and make a reservation.

We chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was very professional and helpful. The quality of ingredients and cooking both superb. Not the least costly in town, but worth it for the experience.

We arrived before 20.00 and were the first there - then by 20.30 nearly every table was full on a Tuesday evening. This restaurant is closed Saturdays and Sundays, so I guess that just about says it all - the food is good enough that people will come during the week. Not to say that they are arrogant - indeed...

The Le Bistrot is an excellent restaurant and my 1st Choice when I am in Chalon. I have been there 3 or 4 times and the quality of food was always fantastic! The selection is great, the cooking is perfect and the presentation is very nice. This is a clear GO.

Don't think you will walk into the door and get a seat in this little charmer of a restaurant. I loved everything I had. Totally enjoyed the little mise en bouche in between the plats. Service great, clean restaurant, and enjoyed the ambiance.
