We picked this restaurant in a hurry on a wet evening and were not expecting anything special. However, the food was excellent, beautifully presented and some of the dises very unusual.

We arrived in Beaune and found this restaurant by accident as not in the main "tourist" part of town. Had an evening meal - what a delight. Service was great, food was stunning and wine choice very good - all at a reasonable price. Staff had some difficulty with English and I certainly had some difficulty with French but we understood the menu explanations. Decor is modern and everything about the restaurant was way above average. Can highly recommend. We did not have a set menu and found the overall value excellent.

Overlooking the slightly unloved car park of Beaune is not where you would expect to find such great food and prices. Perfect Bourgogne menu for euro 22, and an a la carte of other local classics. The steak was a joy.

Perfect little bistro that is clean and quite. Service is sincerre and the $20 prix fix menu is hard to beat. Wine list could be better but you find something.
