“Unpretentious and totally enjoyable”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

A starter of a dozen Burgundy snails was better than I have had at many more prestigious restaurants, not overcooked as is often the case and not drowning in garlic butter. The faux filet steak which followed was cooked "á pointe" exactly as requested, a perfect medium rare. The patron, M. Bernard Camus and his wife run a clean, comfortable and totally unpretentious town centre bar/ brasserie, deservedly popular with both locals and visitors. A good selection of regional wines, many by the glass or pichet, all reasonably priced. You come here for simple but delicious no-frills food with a pronounced regional bias. Not to be missed. I have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed.

Avoid at all cost! I got a rotten piece of grilled meat. As soon as the piece of meat arrived it smelled funny - sure enough it was off. I did not want to make a fuss and just wanted to leave and not have anything else. The owner tried to assure me that they knew what they were doing... There are other places to eat in Avallon - please avoid this place for your own well-being.
