I went to this restaurant on a Friday night in early February. Only one other table was occupied. I have no idea why it was so empty because the meal I was served may have been one of the best I have ever had. The pate starter was intense but the pigeon main was absolutely ridiculous. Maybe the best dish... More

We stopped over in Beaune and were able to book a table for four at this rather small restaurant. We had read up on the place and found some of the service comments surprising. Having heard about the food we wanted to give it a try regardless. Sugimura san confirmed the reservation himself, and we surely didn't have any problems... More

This was my favourite restaurant in Beaune. I returned each year. This time I experienced such service with attitude - from booking as it was indicated it was very busy and they would see if they could fit me in depending upon time... Well all night 3 tables were full - what is this about - not to mention his... More

A friend and I went to Le Benaton for lunch because she enjoys trying the lunch menu at Michelen star restaurants in order to determine if it is worth going a second time for dinner. Also the price is usually much for affordable. Le Benation was an excellent experience, and we were able to book a table online in advance.... More

Le Benaton quite simply provides a superb dining experience! Every dish, from the amuse-bouche to the entree, main course, and dessert, was spectacular, prepared with artistry, and designed to maximize the taste. Outstanding wine selections. Truly outstanding!

We've dined here several times over the years, though probably not in five years. Hard for a restaurant to live up to high expectations accompanied by memories which may not be realistic. Le Benaton met or exceeded them in every way: the understated elegance of the dining room and the excellent service were prequels to the main event: THE FOOD!... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant before reading that it had a Michelin star, so we weren't sure what to expect. As it turned out, the food was outstanding and the wine list very good, however, the service was not what we would expect of a Michelin starred restaurant. Whilst it was okay, it was not friendly and it... More

The place is a beautiful small place, with high quality food. Clearly they have earned their star ratings. We had high expectations, and they were met. The menu was a bit limited, and the portions on the small side, but that was as expected. Several of the dishes were very innovative. Not your classic french food... most items have a... More

Twenty eight seats inside. That's it. If you wish to make a reservation, do it as soon as you can. The venue is cozy and understated. The service is friendly and professional. The food is expertly prepared with imagination and great skill. Presentation is as if you are being served eatable works of art. The costs for the prix fixe... More
