There are not many choices for fine dining in Auxerre. Le Salamandre was recommended by our concierge. Only seafood is served. One would think that there would be some light, classic preparations. Not so- here was pan seared cod on a bed of mashed potatoes with a mushroom gravy and hake covered with olive oil and almonds. Portions were large. One might say: fish for the hungry farmer. If you can find the right dish, the pris fixe menu is an amazing deal. In addition the wine list is very reasonable.

I've eated at La Salamandre four times, each meal was superb.
Their menu is extensive and properly descriptive if you are unsure of an item; the chef and the wait-staff are attentive and the food is DELICIOUS! The wines offered are good choices and decent values are available if you choose wisely. The plat du fromage (cheese board) is very extensive, save room for the cheeses and the desserts.

The menu only offers one non-fish choice so if you don't like sea food, don't go.
