We had the set menu, the food was good, however the portion size was huge, this meant you were almost full after the starter and still had another 3 courses to go.

Went with a group of 10 adults & 5 kids, nice big table in a secluded alcove. Fondu shared between 2 or 3 so we had 3 pots but none of us managed to finish despite our best efforts! A reasonable €16 menu, with the option of a cheese board for dessert! Cheesetastic!

Its been a long ambition to visit Arbois in the Jura where Louis Pasteur established molecular dyssymmetry by fermentation no doubt using the local yellow wine.

Food really good, well priced, service good. Fondu excellent, and the smoked trout even better. And, yes, local wine. We ate there three of the four nights we were in Arbois.

Really a terrible place. What they serve is super salty porc and sausage. Prices are not decent at all, the stuff is overpriced for what it is. Think of it as a big swiss-type cafe with lots of heavy-wood tables, and dead animals on the wall. Positive point: big, free parking space...

The restaurant is located in the centre of the Arbois town, not so far away from the Pasteur museum; You can dediced to eat inside or at the terrace next to the river. The main interest of this restaurant is the large choice of local menus mainly based on "vin jaune" and "comté" cheese at decent prices. A four course... More
