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.

Lovely location, nicely presented brasserie. Just far too expensive at €32 for a rib eye steak with potatoes and nothing else.

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
