“Superb Food but no air conditioning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

During our 3 night stay in Beaune this was the best of 3 restaurants we had dinner in. The pre set 6 course menu we had as part of a group party was excellent as was the service, our only disappointment was that on a very hot evening in July the dining area lacks any air conditioning and there was little if any air from an open window. Our food was almost faultless though.
Having said that , none of the other restaurants we went to had aircon either.

“Really Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Loved this restaurant. Lovely outdoor patio, and nice inside too. The service was great and very helpful. They brought two small starters gratis, that were absolutely delicious, the home made foie gras was the best I had in all of France. We were too full for dessert so they brought a small chocolate sweet. I would definitely go back.

“Still a most enjoyable evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We visit Beaune usually each year to buy wine and enjoy the food. We have had mixed experiences but never here. This trip was as enjoyable as before, in fact considering the price it stood out as the best. The staff were great the food excellent and the choice of wines with the menu was well thought out and good value. The poor reviews are a mystery to us. We may be back later this year again!

“Foodie's Find in Beaune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel. It was Sunday, many restaurants were closed in this very small town. We did not have high expectations as this trip to France was for the sole purpose of eating great food and we had been to several Michelin 2 star and a couple of 3 star restaurants. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The food was excellent. My husband took the veal which was superior to what I had at a well-known Paris 2 star restaurant. I had the Chefs selection of the day..scallops and shrimp with creamy risotto. Well done!
I sadly have an allergy to cheese, milk, etc. the chef and staff were amazingly accommodating. They made an amuse Boucher just for me. The same with a salad and dessert. I was quite impressed since the prices were exceedingly reasonable.

“Cheese troller is amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We had one of the best meals in a restaurant.

We had their dinner degustation menu with wine pairing, The foie gras as entré, the pigeon as main meal and the creme brulee as dessert. And the cheese , of course!
The foie gras, pigeon and cheese were marvelous, incredible tasting and texture. The creme brulee was average.

We are seeing many different reviewes about this place, but our experience was unforgettable, definetely! And please, ask for the cheese trolley!
