Ten of us were here for a birthday day and they looked after us very well. A lovely location on the bank of the River Doubs adds to the experience. An international group we all found the food very good, all very well and precisely cooked from an attractive menu. Prices were reasonable for food of this quality and the... More

One of our group had a bucket list item of dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant. As a pizza and burgers kinda gal, I wasn't too sure about having my birthday dinner at some fluffy French restaurant... But it was such a pleasant surprise! The set menu was amazing, the food even better than I thought it would be. I had... More

The menu featured what appeared to me to be local dishes, which were prepared very well. We both had a chicken main dish and Paris Brest for dessert, and chose different starters terrine and snails. All very good. The service was warm and efficient. While we were eating a large party came in and went to an upstairs room, but... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Wonderful food, lovely decor, really friendly and helpful staff, three courses all tasted so good. My only criticism would be that with my steak I would have preferred some vegetables apart from just potatoes, but that was my only little fault. This place if definitely worth a try.

We came here on a Saturday night, our hotel made the reservations. We were lucky, as the place filled up around us. The wait staff were professional without being intimidating. The food was expertly prepared. The scallops on artichoke puree were crisp and browned on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside. But actually, a pint of the artichoke... More

Very nice and cosy. The waiters are all super nice and available. We chose a bottle of wine at first which we didn't like and offered to pay for it and change it...they changed it with a big smile and didn't make us pay for the one we ordered by mistake. Very professional... The food was excellent. I certainly recommend... More

A smart restaurant just outside the Port Rivotte where charming waiting staff will bring you delicious food from an amazingly cheap €29 menu or a more expensive menu at €49 which includes foie gras and scallops. Tried the sherry-like Savignin to accompany the food. A lovely restaurant with impeccable service. Hard to to imagine better food at €29!

We had the Friday lunch menu for 17 Euro, and it we and amazing value. A delicious mushroom soup followed by Salmon grilled a la Planche with... More
