Having stayed in this hotel in 2015 we decided to go back for a meal. We took two of our friends along with us and we all enjoyed a fabulous meal. One of our friends is a vegetarian and we had no problems with getting a lovely meal for her. This hotel is really a little gem of a find.... More

We've eaten at several restaurants on Bagnoles and have usually come away thinking it was not quite as good as expected. The Bois Joli does not fall into this category. The quality and choice of food was excellent. I think maybe the portions could have been more generous, but perhaps this was because we were very hungry and the dishes... More

As a special, birthday meal the venue was perfect. Apperitif in the lounge was a good prelude to the restaurant. Cocktail maison was very light and refreshing. The whole menu was varied and what we ate was all cooked and presented to a very high standard. Drinks were perhaps a little slow to be refreshed and supplied. Staff very friendly... More

My wife and I enjoyed 2 dinners here. Everything was beautifully cooked, very well-presented and served. The maître d' (owner) was most helpful with our choice of wine and apéritif. The restaurant is comfortable and traditional with a welcoming ambience. When we complimented the chef's cooking, we were told that he has been with Bois Jolie for 23 years -... More

As a vegetarian the menu was somewhat restrictive for me but the food was well cooked and presented. Desserts were the highlight, a good choice and very tempting.

Wonderful dinner at a friendly atmosphere. Food was very good. We ordered 38€ menu having oyster gratin with cider sauce, caille farcie, and soufflé , we loved all. We also like those old charming furnitures and the decoration. I think if you stay in Bagnoles de l'Orne you must not miss to dinner in Bois Joli.

We booked a table here as the restaurant in our nearby hotel was closed on the Sunday evening. We were delighted to try it out, as it was excellent! Especially for a hotel restaurant. We selected a fish and meat dish from their special menus for mains and finished with local cheeses. Everything was delicious! Beautifully cooked and presented. The... More

A taste of France both in terms of the menu offered, the quality of the food and service and in the way it is served. Attentive staff provide a level of service so often missing in even good quality restaurants today. If you like things to be just right but without a stuffy atmosphere, this is it.

The Bois Joli has an old fashioned charm - in the nicest possible way. We wanted to end our holiday in France with a special evening meal and the Bois Joli didn't disappoint. It's a true silver service restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food is worthy of its Michelin star recommendation. We would highly recommend.
