Simple but good regional cooking

The place is like a typical bistro out of the 50`s with the accompanying music in the background from this era. The meals are simple but good from the region. The patron is an typical french original with lots of dry humour.

We had a fabulous meal here. We stopped outside and looked at the 2 course set menu for that evening, I wasn't sure what one of the courses was (mefflouette?), and the waitress explained it was a cheese and potato dish with sausage. She brought us a piece of the delicate blue cheese to try. We ordered two set meals,... More

It's a small, potentially cozy (provided that you're not next to the loo, as we were) place where you can have dinner France-Comté style. I would have given 4/5 if the waiter/owner(?) Pierrot had been a bit less grumpy and awkward. I had country paté for starters and Franch-Comté tortellini @18€, and it was good and plentiful. We had a... More

A lovely little restaurant in Besancon. We had the set menu of terrine, and it was HUGE! Very delicious but a lot of food! Then for mains we had a lasagne (also incredibly delicious but super large), and my husband had the pork which was very tasty. A little creme brûlée for dessert topped off a very nice meal, and...

Four of us were looking for a restaurant early one Saturday evening when we found this small, deserted place. The menu was small but interesting so we went in and asked the maitre, Pierre, for a table. He checked his list and said he had just had a cancellation so could accommodate us. The ambience was great, the food was... More

We have just returned to our hotel after an absolutely wonderful serendipitous evening! We had no idea where to eat and happened upon La Petite Adresse. The simple menu reflected the quality of the food...simply delicious! With the freshest of foods cooked with simple naturalness and complimented with delicious wines we had a delightful time. Pierre, the patron, was very... More

We were wandering around Besançon looking to find a restaurant and chanced to find this place. It was early evening and was empty, so we were surprised when the patron said he had to check if he had a table. We soon found out why as the place filled up - we had been lucky that he had a cancellation.... More

We had just finished shopping and were looking for a nice place for lunch, but at just after 13:15 we had left it a bit late. Most of the restaurants were full or not taking any more orders so we were resigned to eating in a fast food place :-( However, we made one last try and we struck gold.... More
