Very good dinner at a beautiful riverside location - well worth a visit.

The picturesque view of Macon and its 18th century bridge, on the left bank of the Saone is often photographed from just outside this restaurant in St. Laurent on the right bank. And therefore it is fitting that this restaurant has a large terrace with many tables to allow diners to enjoy the view... read more

We stayed at the Hotel d’Europe et d’Angleterre at the waterfront in Mâcon. Just across the water, within easy walking distance over a big medieval bridge we found Le Saint Laurent. With a big terrace on the waterfront for the summer and huge floor-to ceiling windows for the chillier days a great location to enjoy the sun and good food... More

We eat in Macon a lot as we have a house in the countryside nearby and this restaurant never ceases to impress. This week we had an amuse bouche of fois gras brûlée,a starter of delicious shredded celeriac and sumptuously cooked cod with delicate salad leaves piled on top and our main course was delicious pink trout accompanied by sautéed...

Arrived late in Macon our hotel recommended this restaurant. Literally had to jog over the bridge as the kitchen was closing. Lovely romantic view, had Turbot and was very nice, very rich. Dessert was equally nice. Two of us was 100€ with a bottle of wine. Service was fine. Recommended

We have been coming here for years. The food is usually quite good, however expensive. For a Saturday lunch two of us spent well over 100 Euros (with only a local table wine). Service was polite and friendly (the maitre d'hotel "Laurent" is always charming) however, the wait time before ordering and between each course was extra long. Not having... More

Delicious food. The chicken (from Bresse) actually had muscle and flavour. Some waiters worked much harder than others, and some did less! But, it was fine.

Have been coming here for best part of 20 years, and am also a fan of the owner Georges Blanc's operation in nearby Vonnas, where he has a three-star restaurant, the Mere Blanc brasserie and some very reasonable accommodation for a stopover en route to Italy. Back this summer and food is as good as ever: anyone quibbling over value... More

Beautiful setting in Macon with views over the river, food was good, however very expensive for the quality. Staff polite but seemed a little flustered and disorganised. Having spent a few days here it would be fair to say there are other places to eat which offer far better food and certainly better value.
