Enjoyable French Food

As a vegetarian the menu was somewhat restrictive for me but the food was well cooked and presented. Desserts were the highlight, a good choice and very tempting.

Wonderful dinner at a friendly atmosphere. Food was very good. We ordered 38€ menu having oyster gratin with cider sauce, caille farcie, and soufflé , we loved all. We also like those old charming furnitures and the decoration. I think if you stay in Bagnoles de l'Orne you must not miss to dinner in Bois Joli.

We booked a table here as the restaurant in our nearby hotel was closed on the Sunday evening. We were delighted to try it out, as it was excellent! Especially for a hotel restaurant. We selected a fish and meat dish from their special menus for mains and finished with local cheeses. Everything was delicious! Beautifully cooked and presented. The... More

A taste of France both in terms of the menu offered, the quality of the food and service and in the way it is served. Attentive staff provide a level of service so often missing in even good quality restaurants today. If you like things to be just right but without a stuffy atmosphere, this is it.

The Bois Joli has an old fashioned charm - in the nicest possible way. We wanted to end our holiday in France with a special evening meal and the Bois Joli didn't disappoint. It's a true silver service restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food is worthy of its Michelin star recommendation. We would highly recommend.

What the previous reviewer thought of this restaurant we shall never know (Its all about Bagnoles de L'Orne Trip advisor!!) We ate from the Cedre (38 euros) menu and sampled some really exceptional food. A beautiful Amuse Bouche. The starter was unusual, Poached eggs in crayfish head broth, I loved it but spouse was not taken with it. I had... More

Beautiful architecture, quality shops, hotels, cafes, creperies. A magical place. Love the ambience and the natural life. Saw a beaver in the water....so cute.

The restaurant in this hotel was a great find and exceeded our expectations. The service was friendly but very professional and discrete. The food was excellent; all three courses for four of us. The wine list was comprehensive but not so big that we had to wade through many wines in order to make our choice. Needless to say, the... More

This is a great restaurant for a very high standard meal. The maître d was friendly and attentive. Food was very good, I had a brilliant steak. The building is lovely and historic, a great place for a special meal of a luxurious quality. It wasn't actually that expensive at about £40 per head.

Thank Stephen B
