This delightful cafe/restauraunt was serving food on a Monday and we were deliughted to find it open as we had just cycled to the Chateau Commarin down the road and the cafe in that village had been closed. So we were hungry by the time we got here. It seems to serve food all day. I think the owners are... More

Great food, reasonable pricing. They don't have the traditional "menu" option of 3-4 course meal that most places do, but the main course comes with veggies and portions are generous. Only 4/5 because my escargot and my guinea we over cooked. Would happily visit again.

This little restaurant is in the middle of the village of ChateauNeuf, so medieval, so outstandingly beautiful, and so unexpected. Wonderful food in the best of settings.

We stayed at a b&b in Chateauneuf and this restaurant was yards away! What a perfect choice, the couple who run it are English but the meals are very French. Lovely atmosphere with a log fire in the middle and restaurant very busy. Hope we can return one day. The village itself is enough to bring you back, so picturesque... More

Nice little restaurant with friendly English speaking owner in the middle of fabulous Chateaueuf-en-Auxois. Take your time before or after your meal to walk around the village. The restaurant itself is very cozy with fireplace in the center. Food was ok for me but what really got stuck in mind were crepes! Presentation was amazing, my crepe with ice-cream was... More

My husband and I had lunch here two times during our stay in the area in June 2014. The crepes were excellent and reasonably priced. The service was quick and friendly. If we return to Chateauneuf in the future, we'll be back there again...
