“Average Food. Good Wine.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We visited this restaurant for lunch in 2011 and the food was very good and fresh (and the restaurant was also packed). On our return visit in April 2013, we were sorely disappointed as the food just was not tasty. I chose a roasted leg of lamb, which tasted like it had been cooked last week and reheated. My husband opted for a pizza which was bland. We chose the house Chablis, which was quite tasty, but that was the highlight of the lunch. Service was just so-so and the restaurant was almost empty.

“Good food, fast service, not the best wines”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We tried their more expensive menu out of two, and got fast, good service. Drinks came immediately, food wasn't delayed either. It almost went to fast between the dishes.
The snails were the best we had in France, the haddock was superb.

The wines though weren't the best, and after this round we realized that the French can't do a proper espresso.

All in all, the menus are good worth, the wines not so much, but it still is worth an overall 4.

“12.30PM Friday - refusing service”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

My parents are over 70, traveling in my mom's region and stopped in Chablis for lunch today. Long story short but with diabetis, my father needs to have lunch on a regularish basis and so they enter le Syracuse at 12.30PM only to be told that:
1. they were currently full (so far it's happened before, no big deal)
2. they couldn't even wait at the bar to wait for a table to open (that's actually illegal in France, bars are supposed to always let you in for at least a glass of water...)
3. my parents overhearing a waiter saying "ils me prennent la tete ceux-la" i.e. my parents just asking to wait for a table to clear by waiting at the bar were ball-busters... (that's takign the cake)

Therefore I simply implor everyone reading this review to never go again to le Syracuse for the illegal, vulgar behaviour they've exhibited today.

“Beautiful restaurant in beautiful village”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We enjoyed lunch here during our recent holiday. The starter of scallops decorated with orange and grapefruit slices tasted as good as it looked. I had the guinea fowl and my husband had the ham main course which was followed by cheese and a delicious apple tart to finish. We complemented our lunch with a glass of Chablis.
