Do not expect fine dining but expect traditional French cuisine and hearty portions. Very cozy and friendly atmosphere, traditional design and welcoming personnel. Reserve a table in advance! All ordered dishes were tasty. Long wine list gives a possibility to chose the wine you would...More

Great restaurant with great food and friendly services. I tried "poulet de bresse au morilles", loved the firm texture of the chicken and the cream cause was just fantastic. The desserts were great as well, especial the creme brulee, must try!

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

We have been here for 3 times and the poulet bresse avec morilles is constantly amazing. The only thing is the service, its a little impersonal and cold.

My wife and I ate in Lyon and Bourg-en-Bresse over the weekend and Le Bressan had the best tasting chicken of all restaurants we ate at while visiting. This is against some tough competition.

We stopped for lunch at this small restaurant and we really had very high expectations. The restaurant is a bit dark and the tables are small. The food is OK, in good-sized portions, but the taste and the quality, especially of the Bresse Poulet, did...More

It is a small, agreeable local restaurant. Foie gras and chicken liver starters quite good. My wife found the frog legs decently prepared. Still trying to find the iconic Bresse chicken and cream sauce, I gave it a try; adequate but nothing special. We both...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
