10 friends were having a very fine evening at the restaurant. The food was very tasty and well prepared. And the wines were well matched with the food. The menu card was only in French and the waitress did not speak any english, but luckily some of the participants spoke French, so we managed to order

We had gone here last year on our visit and tried again. We liked it much better this year. The food was superb, we had a four course menu that included a great cheese plate. Gluten free for my celiac husband was no problem. Sadly, one of the main things I remember about the evening was that there was in our section of the dining room a large table with a small child who was making a huge amount of noise in this upscale, otherwise all adult, mostly couples place. It was not just a short amount of noise and went on for most of our meal. Apparently no effort to keep the noise down (at times we couldn't hear each other). One couple came in and barely sat down before they left - we saw them later at another restaurant. This place is not a place for children unless very well-behaved and this child was not a toddler. Bear in mind this is a risk you have to take since they do have kids here and to be fair they should not have had to talk to the adults at the table to control the child. Other than that it was a great experience.

We felt at ease as soon as we arrived. Well decorated tables, helpful staff who made the whole experience an excellent celebration. The menu was exciting, perfectly prepared by chef M. Compagnon with a fine wine list to accompany. Perhaps mousse of fourme d'ambert sttod out for being a lightweight incarnation of a delightful blue cheese which can lie heavily if one has dined too well en route to it.

We got to the restaurant at 7:30pm. We waited 30 minutes to place our order. Some of us took a starter, others just mains. The starter took another hour, the main course arrived after two and a half hours. No sorry, no nothing. Water is 8 euros a bottle, the food is decent but nothing that can compensate for the bad service and the high prices. Sorry guys but this is not enough. You get way better service and the same quality of food in other places in Beaune.

Beautiful room, impeccable but friendly service, sublime food, conversation-friendly with soft jazz in background, tables not crowded together, lovely table settings. We would love to return!
