Time stands still in this 1970s style restaurant. Very quirky although I think they don’t mean to be. I think if they modernised it, the place would never be the same again. The locals seem to love it as it was packed . Make sure...More

We were here on October half term, a nice crisp afternoon. The outside is full of character, looks like a building from medieval times. The inside is full of farming decor and it's got a lovely rural atmosphere. We were a party of 4 for...More

There is not much on offer in Bourg-en-Bresse but I think we chose poorly. The outside is a welcoming front full of character. Plenty of choice on the menus. There were some locals in but mainly foreign tourists like us. We went for a pretty...More

We enjoyed our meal at this traditional restaurant. The chicken was very good and a local speciality. A very pleasant meal, welcoming atmosphere and plenty of choice on the menu. It is very popular so I imagine you would need to book ahead (as we...More

We had a 'fish' and the lamb cotlettes. Not to be recommended. Perhaps a bad day for the chef? Anyhow the potatoe gratin was excellent.
