We really wanted a more relaxed meal on our last night in Arbois and this was just what the doctor ordered. Wish I had had the appetite to have a fondu!! Looked and smelled amazing. Nice, simple food at a good price. The waitress was lovely and really friendly. Best 'café gourmand' of our holiday.

We ate here one evening because we could not get into Les Caudalies which is almost next door and had been recommended. We went for the four course menu and overall it was good quality, nicely presented and very tasty. First, the onion soup, nice croutons and melted Comte cheese but I thought that the soup lacked that caramelised onion... More

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. This looks like Fino sherry tastes like sherry but is not sherry. Made in similar treated barrels it is not fortified and like other Arbois wine has a complex herby pine taste which I... More

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...
