Simply superb. We had the "Chef's surprise" lunch and loved every morsel. It was always going to get five stars but what tipped it into the "one of the best meals you've ever had" category was the dessert.

Worth the 35 minute drive from Dijon. From the aperitifs to the pet-it fours, each dish is a masterpiece. The chef comes out and personally welcomes you and invites you for a tour of his kitchen before the staff take you into a spacious and light dining room which overlooks the pool and gardens. We chose the option of allowing... More

On a tour to Burgundy we stopped at this restaurant in the area of Dole, a short detour from the highway. It had been recommended to us by locals as one of the best Michelin star restaurants in the area. During the week they have a great, fairly priced lunch special including wine and water. Our daily lunch included dishes... More

We stayed one night in the Pruneaux room, which had a lovey view of the gardens and a big whirpool bath. It wasn't warm enough to have a swim, but the tree garden was very pretty and pleasing for a pre dinner stroll. Dinner was a gastronomic feast with the ubiquitous amuse bouches before starters and dessert, then petit fours... More

Beautiful hotel and surrounds, pleasant rooms. However disappointed with restaurant, as we had to wait for a long time at the table for every course. Breakfast was very limited and expensive.
