We had just arrived in Vezelay, and after checking in to the hotel next door, we were desperate for lunch. We had a wonderful meal here: beautiful food, prepared and served with style. All four of our party were delighted with everything we ordered.

Upon the advise of others we booked ahead for lunch but on the day of our visit it was clear they were not needed. The threat of rain and some cool temps pushed us to a table inside although the attraction of patio seating under other circumstances was clear. My lunch started with my very first jambon persille, which had... More

food was great, it was too cold to eat outside, but there is a terrace for the warmer weather... the menu is varied and enticing, the service is just fine and it was next door to my hotel... so convenient and tasty

We ate here on the recommendation of the owner of the B&B we stayed at - and it is very nice. We were advised to book if we wanted to be assured of a seat on the terrace, which we were able to do on the day and just a couple of hours before we wanted to eat. It was... More

My husband and I had lunch and (the next day) drinks here. The food at lunch was great, but the service seemed a bit inattentive, and the maitre d' actually froze out some people who apparently wanted to sit at the wrong table.

I had lunch at Le Cheval Blanc on a family holiday in July this year. We were taken by the setting - nice outside seating area - and the traditional interior (old piano, ancient but functioning rest rooms!) The menu was reasonably priced, and offered a good choice on the set menu. We were five, so went for this option.... More

Our taxi driver said this was the best restaurant in Vezelay, so we gave it a try. If there is a better restaurant in Vezelay, I would be amazed. A la carte is a bit pricey, but the 30 euro prix fixe menu was very good value. The dishes on the menu were good options, not just cheap alternatives to... More

Food was good, if not excellent. Service was very inconsistent and turned my experience into an unpleasant one. One of the three waitresses had quite a long face and to my luck, she served me or did not. I had to wait for everything from cutlery to clearing up my plates for ages. After my second dish she never visited... More

Contrary to other reviews here, we found the service to be poor. Our waitress was not very helpful, and snatched away our menus before taking our orders for dessert. My food was excellent - no starter but excellent ris de veau with morilles and langoustine for main and an apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert. However, the others were less... More
