This is a top end establishment which stands out all the more for being in an economically depressed area. We have enjoyed it several times over the past decade. It does all and has all the things you would expect from a 2 Star Michelin restaurant in a less pompous and more roomy setting. You start with champagne in a... More

Excellent modern French cuisine but at a price. Innovative menu and very comprehensive wine list but again not cheap. Service was very good.

We stayed in Joigny specifically to eat at La Cote St Jacques restaurant run by Chef Lorian. It is Michelin rated and our 2 weeks in France was directed by staying in Relais Chateau properties and eating at their Michelin recognized restaurants. CSJ was a good, but not great dinner.

This is one of those meals that one remembers for a very long time. To call this lunch a 'meal' seems pedestrian in the extreme.

The gourmet Menu concluded by its exceptional desserts will remain an unforgettable moment. Served in an authentic cozy mansion on the banks of the river Yonne. The chef Mr. Lorrain remains available for his guests. A place to recommend for enjoying the French cuisine fine art. Certainly we will be back soon to discover the Lobster "Arabian nights ".

Nice hotel and excellent place. Unfortunately I did not booked the hotel myself and I was sad when I realized that the restaurant was a 3 stars Michelin and I had to go to eat in another place because it was out of my budget. Next time....
