Excellent french michelin star place with Japanese chef

This was a true food adventure - over the top from a presentation perspective and simply so so delicious. Would go back in a flash. Expensive but worth every penny.

Exciting local chef pushing the boundaries in Burgundy. To dine in the garden is the summer is a treat the pigeon washes down with pinot noir is the stuff of legend

Le Benaton is a small jewel of a restaurant, conveniently located withing walking distance of the old wall of Beaune. Classic french food is presented with elegance, and a hint of Asian flare. The food was incomparable, each dish imaginatively constructed with a blend of amazing flavors. We took our time at the restaurant savoring each course. It was a... More

Amazing experience at this very small restaurant. Fine dining at its best, tasty and imaginative food. Superb wines that are not over priced. I visit this town, just to eat here.

Normally I would not review a restaurant where I had not eaten but thought I should share this experience. We arrived at Le Benaton at 7:55 for our 8pm reservation. We were left standing at the door awkwardly as there is no host or hostess. We were shown our table with an abrupt and dismissive hand wave without even a... More

We have eaten at 2 Two Star and 1 Three Star Michelin restaurants in the last 3 years and this ranks with a 3. They had just been visited by raters before we were there and waiting for the review. Sure they will be disappointed, but keep trying as we found zero negatives. The menu was varied and challenged the... More

Devine is the word I would use to describe lunch at Le Benaton. The foie gras presentation offered was the most unique I've ever had (and I've had a lot). The popcorn on top was creative and enhanced the flavor and texture of the foie gras The duck breast was excellent and perfectly prepared. I also had a small lobster... More

Out of a 6 day trip, this was by far and away the best meal we had in France. Everything was perfect, and the rack of lamb cooked on hay was the sweetest, juiciest, most flavoursome piece of lamb I have ever eaten. We loved EVERYTHING about this place, and even though our favourite restaurant in the world is the... More

Each course was beautiful to look at as well as to eat. Hard to recommend specifics since menu changes daily. Well worth stopping Jb Beaune just to eat here. Reservations essential. chchanges daily.
