Out there in the middle of "nowhere" lies this very European feeling restaurant with heavy velvet curtains holding in heat at the vestibule of the front door. WONDERFUL FOOD! I may not have liked everything we had that night, but this is one of those experiences that gave me a taste of new flavors, an activity I truly enjoy. I... More

We have returned many times to the Sleeping Bear region of Michigan because of it's stunning beauty. Now with our little ones grown, we had the chance to dine at this wonderful restaurant. The restaurant itself is a charming cottage, where you dine in cozy rooms, very much like what we have found in France. The three of us chose... More

We visited La Becasse while on vacation. There were eight of us, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the ambience. From the entrees to the plates and desserts, everything was well-prepared and delicious.

This is a quaint little restaurant in the middle of nowhere, but well worth the trip. This was our second trip to La Becasse. On this visit we had the pate and cheese plate for appetizers, which were excellent and very fresh. I had the duck two way (breast and leg) and it was probably one of the best duck... More

We had a delicious dinner. I had the duck duo which was world class. My wife had the whitefish and my son the lamb chops which were both excellent. Great French wine list. Great Up North vibe.

Don't be thrown by the Maple City address or directions from an online site that might seem complicated. The location is really just a short distance from Glen Arbor on the east side of Glen Lake. The food is wonderful-I had duck and my wife had veal. The wine list is extensive and excellent.

Food was excellent and several great wines on their list. Tight quarters, but then so were most of restaurants in this area. Service was prompt and knowledgable. Inside and outside dining available.

Came here with a friend for dinner because we were both curious about it. Great wine list and interesting menu. Loved our waiter. The meal started off with amuse-bouche. Don't know exactly how to describe it, but I really liked the spread that came on top. Then, we had a cheese plate, also very good. My favorite part of the... More
