This bistro was recommended to us by the reception staff at the hotel we stayed at. It is beautifully situated on the river and has a large covered terrace where we sat and enjoyed dinner. After dark the bridge and some of the buildings across the river were illuminated making it the most perfect setting. The food was delicious, the... More

I had the poulet de Bresse with morel mushrooms and was as sick as I ever have been within an hour or so. My wife had to call an ambulance and the hospital put me on a drip and pumped me full of drugs to counteract what the emergency room doctor called 'toxic mushroom poisoning' . I was ill for... More

Very pleasant overnight in Mâcon, recommended and without doubt i would advise my friends. On the terrace at night you have an amazing view at Mâcon and sunset, while savouring all good food from le saint laurent. The menu light and filling at same time, very pleasant service. Try also the special Œuf de ferme du Père Pagneux!

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel receptionist from the Best Western in Macon and boy did she come up trumps. The setting, atmosphere, service, food and wine were pretty near perfect. From the Nicoise salad starter to the Burger, Veal and Texan steak - all cooked to perfection. Dont normally do desserts but I had to try and... More

Lovely restaurant right on the banks of the river with a big terrace. The menu is traditional and very good with some great twists - the kids had the most amazing gourmet burgers with beautifully-cooked meat and a towering pile of other goodies. The traditional Quenelles were excellent, as was the fois gras and the salad nicoise starter. Good, decent,... More

We searched the downtown area of Macon before crossing the bridge to find this lovely spot. The parking in the area is impossible in the late evening after everyone is home from work, but there are some lots not too far away. The food was worth the search, whether ordering the fixed meals or a la carte (but that can... More

If you are passing Macon on an autoroute and have time for a delicious lunch, you could not do better than pay a visit to this bistro. President Mitterand thought it good enough to take President Gorbachev there. Excellent reasonably priced business menus. Great view of Macon across the river.

Beautiful traditional French bistro style decor. Attentive service in a great setting on banks of the Soane. Local content on wine list well chosen. The escargot ravioli with green garlic sauce was simply brilliant
