We landed at Le Bourgogne for our first dinner in Tournus/Burgundy. We were directed there by our fabulous hosts at Le Tour de Tresorier. This was such a lovely, authentic French experience. The staff was kind and welcoming evening though we did not speak French. The food and wine was absolutely delicious and felt like it was prepared in someone's... More

Burgundy is the home of much of what those of us from other countries know of French cooking. Cow au vin. Beef bourgignon, Escargots. Creme caramel and such. The Bourgogne offers a wonderful home style elegance to these classics. A busy place filled with local families having a special night out. There are two small rooms each reached from a... More

Tasty, wholesome and very french. We enjoyed our meal and there was plenty of choice and the house wine served was very drinkable.

I got this restaurant from Tripadvisor, and it was the best. It does not have a star, but should. Reservations are necessary. Tournus is a small town with lots of tourists and locals. All are looking for places to eat, so reserve. This is the best place to eat in the whole area. The Oysters were terrific, I had Escargot,... More

Knowing we were going to be having a very long day driving from England to Tournus - our first visit - we asked the owner of our B & B (Le Tour du Tresorier) if they would book us somewhere for dinner that night. We were so pleased they chose Le Bourgogne, it was fabulous. It was quite small, fully... More

A small intimate restaurant with local chicken, meat and fish. Need to book, even on a Sunday night in February as it is very popular, but the hotel will book a table for you if asked.

Having written a lukewarm revue about Le Sauvage in Dijon, I thought I'd balanve things out by waxing lyrical about a restaurant a little further south in the stunning town of Tournus, not least because for much of the time eating in Dijon was spent musing about "the real thing" to be had in Tournus. The night after visiting Dijon... More

Very nice restaurant, annexed to the same name hotel, located not far from the Tournus Abbey. The dining room is not very huge, that means that reservation is absolutely mandatory (the evening before, we went there by chance, and the restaurant was fully booked). Tables are very nicely set, and atmosphere is very relaxing; even a soft background music is... More

Living in Tournus, we've eaten here dozens of times. It is a kitchen away from home - the cuisine is straightforward, delectable and always a pleasure. Highlights include the extravagant and delicious entrecote steak, the frogs' legs and brilliant escargots. Don't miss the winning oysters when they're available. Salads are a meal in themselves. Wine is best ordered by the... More

A proper old-fashioned family-run French restaurant, with no pretentions to be anything other than a good place to eat, with typical bourgeois cooking of the region: snails, coq au vin, jambon persillé (excellent), great steaks etc etc. Good and very reasonably priced wine list, with some excellent wine from local growers. And it was open on a Sunday night. Big... More
