Modern brasserie with a good and varied menu and wine list. Waiter was a little surly at the beginning, but became very friendly as the evening passed. Great place to people watch. Food was excellent.

This is a very nice brasserie with above average food - indeed it is not the very fine dining you can get in France but as brasseries go this one was Very good. The location was lovely on a beautiful quiet square in the middle...More

A very enjoyable evening at Brasserie 1802, sitting on the terrace, overlooking the square in this very attractive town. 1802 is a brasserie, not a fine dining establishment, but our meal was first-rate; among our party we had veal, salad nicoise with pasta and some...More

Food is okay, nothing to write home about. Stuffed into outside patio like sardines, but no choice during hot summer. Waiter and hipster seating people had incredible, rude attitude. Dismissive. Would not answer questions, would not offer suggestions. Heard the word "no" more than any...More

I had dinner here two nights ago with friends who were visiting Besancon; I chose the Brasserie 1802 because I had good memories of previous evenings there. I wasn't disappointed. We were able to sit out on the huge deck, under their beautiful cream parasols,...More

The façade seeming a little stark from the outside, the menu looked enticing enough to make us enter. What a surprise! The restaurant was much larger than anticipated. The interior is modern with a cosy touch, the flower arrangements tastefully Zen. The service was quick...More

Recommended by our landlady at Le Sauvage (beautiful hotel, converted cloister), the 1802 was really great. Lovely food at very reasonable prices (12 euros or so for a plat du jour). I would not dare to sweat that it is all cooked on the spot,...More

My daughter and I enjoyed our meal at 1802 after a cold, wet, windy day. Although we spoke little French, our server helped us make our choices. The atmosphere was elegant but casual (we were not the only ones in jeans.) We were not hungry...More
