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

We sat outside for dinner on a balmy June evening.The service was excellent and welcoming.Delicious pouilly fuisse and cote de Beaune. A lot of food choice -my wild turbot was gorgeous as was my husband's beef fillet. We were given 3 little amuse-bouche to start with. The cheese trolley was definitely worth fitting in. I have a feeling puddings are... More

We had an unexpected but excellent lunch. Our boat had landed at Marcon and we decided to eat in the town instead of on board and as it was a Sunday not many places were open. We stumbled upon this restaurant not knowing anything about it. We sat down and immediately realised no one spoke English and the menus were... More

Truly inspired food if a little too much emphasis for the sweet palate. Very charming and attentive service - excellent wine book. Lovely table settings but the décor, oh dear, try to ignore the truly hideous colour scheme, pictures and general non-style. Food-wise a lovely place to be. Excellent value.

I've just enjoyed an outstanding meal Chez Pierre. Why do people spend 29 Euros for a mediocre menu in an unappealing restaurant when they can enjoy a wonderful meal for 35 Euros in a restaurant that operates at an exceptionally high standard? Everything was first-rate. Well worth a visit!

We were driving through France and stopped by chance in Macon. Consulting the guidebook we found this restaurant - what a gem! 26E for the lunch menu, which was unbelievable value. The food was delicious and the pre-dessert petit fours were a course all by themselves. Combined with a delicious 'Old' Macon wine, it was a 5* pit-stop!

On our way to Provence, we spent a night in Mâcon. We tried L'Ethym'Sel which was fully booked, but they recommended this restaurant. And we were not disappointed! Food and service are both of very high quality. The service is very attentive. The food delicious! We both had the 'Menu Gourmand' which is really great value for money. Highly recommended!
