Excellent food and service

The two of us dined there a couple of weeks ago. The food was (of course) excellent, but the service made it outstanding. Several of the staff spoke better English than our schoolkid French so we were able to have proper discussions when choosing the food and wine. For example, when I chose a... read more

Be prepared to spend around three hours to enjoy a full dinner! I had reserved a table in advance, a must on a Saturday evening, and received a warm welcome from Madame before being taken to my beautifully laid table. The restaurant enjoys a rustic but elegant setting, and the ambiance was refined and sophisticated, but not stifling or overawed... More

3 hour meal superbly done. Did half bottles from an extensive list (half bottles=half size and half price - brilliant idea). Cheese board with 2 types of epoisse stands out. Overall not far short of perfection and certainly worth 5 star review.

We ordered the least expensive of the set menus in this Michelin starred restaurant, and ordered only one glass of wine, as it was lunchtime. I don't know whether this altered wait staff perception of us, but I felt the service was a bit formal to nonexistent. The interior of the restaurant and table settings are classically beautiful, as was... More

Great place to end the year at this one star Michelin. There were 4 of us and we chose the simplest of the 3 choices. The food was delicious and presented as a work of art. The table setting was exquisite. All in all it was an unforgettable evening from 20PM until 2AM!

I wish we could spend more time in Macon so we could revisit this restaurant. We had lunch at Restaurant Pierre and it was one of the best gastronomic experiences we’ve had during our month’s stay in the area. We chose the day’s menu (Retour de marche) for 26 euros per person. For firsts, we had pumpkin veloute soup with... More

The food is good and at the level of a 1 star restaurant, a mix of local tradition and a bit of modernity. Desserts are wonderful. The service was excellent : naturally careful and professional, sincerely smiling and charming (not the kind of cold and unpersonalised service you can encounter in starred restaurant, where waiters apply the irritating politeness rules...

This is a restaurant not to be missed but I would recommend booking. Madame does speak English but it is always useful to take a dictionary to a restaurant, although some things don't always translate. We ate outside on a lovely warm evening and we were transported to Gastronomy Heaven. Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented. Such happy memories... More
