“Almost Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This place isn’t cheap but that probably doesn’t matter once you savour the flavour. The restaurant is in the Hotel Cheval Blanc in Langres which is in the middle of France and an extremely convenient stop over either en route to or from Alpine slopes or the Cote d’Azur. You can go for one of the fixed price menus or a la carte and whichever way you go you will be treated to additional amuse bouche treats, superbly tasty mainly regional food and a pleasant setting. The staff may be a bit variable but the owners do keep their eye on things to ensure standards don’t drop. Just be aware that Sunday night may be when the chef has pre prepared the food for warming by underlings and it simply isn’t as good.

“unbeatable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

A really great formal restaurant. The service is spot on and the food while being truly tasty fine dining is also pleasantly filling. A great place for a real treat and to top it all its good value for money when you take into account the excellent food and service. Will be back

“VERY GOOD FOOD, WINES AT SENSIBLE PRICES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

we have never had anything which wasn't good/very good in the restaurant with one piece of meat (venison) the best I have ever eaten and several desserts to quite exceptional standards. We are fussy - this place works. , Not a huge wine list but some very interesting half bottles.

“Classic French Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The food was exceptional and the location very pretty. All four of us really enjoyed our meal - my wife's lobster looked magnificent. The menu was well balanced and there was a choice of several set alternatives as well as the a la carte. Portions were sensibly ample - no ridiculous micro servings at Le Cheval Blanc - and we left the table feeling replete. This is not a budget restaurant but for what is served it is very good value for money. The wine list was interesting and reasonably priced, however, as it was the last night of the holiday we were extravagent and did not regret our choices. The service was friendly and efficient without being overly pressing - enhancing the occasion rather than making things starchily formal. Overall an excellent evening ending our holiday on a high note.

“Not for us”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

The restaurant is a part of the Cheval Blanc Hotel that can be found inside the city walls. There is an abundance of waiters to serve you but there are clearly some further training needs to achieve the correct quality of service: the menu offers a wide choice but, on its arrival, it was high on presentation but disappointingly lacking in flavours.
