Having stopped in Bourg en Bresse a couple of times we decided to look for somewhere new to eat. Had a look on TA and went armed with various choices. Looked at several options, settled for this one and we weren't disappointed. Inside the place is lovely full of bric a brac - a real old fashioned feel to it. Service was good as was the food. Nice choice on the menu and pretty good value. Would definitely recommend.

This was our second visit to Le Bressan. On both occasions we thoroughly enjoyed our meals, choosing variants of Poulet de Bresse. Other meals are available, but when in Bourg-en-Bresse....!

The restaurant is intimate, the service was helpful and warm. All in all our experience was excellent, and we will return if staying in the area.

We stopped in this town on our way to the Alps for our first ever skiing holiday. I insisted on a break from a motorway stop. We went for this restaurant as it was the only one in our DK guide and as always their recommendation was tops even though the restaurant was nowhere near the top of tripadvisor reviews. Traditional French restaurant with wooden beams, lots of character and exposed cobble type walls and simple wooden furniture. The €15 ish dish of the day was the famous local Bresse chicken (1/4) roasted with mouth watering sauté potatoes (goose fat?) and salad. Their was 4 of us and when our meals came I choose leg over breast so maybe ask when ordering if you have a strong preference. Located in centre of town with car park nearby and good pedestrianised shopping. Highly recommend!

we stopped on a long drive through France for a quick dinner and were very positively surprised - very relaxed and quiet atmosphere with lots of local guests - even that the restaurant was almost filled to the last place, very - very - nice food and an astonishingly low price. You got to try this one.

Nice restaurant to try regional specialities in Bourg-en-Bresse. At 12:30 it was almost empty, but filled up quickly and there were no places free one hour later. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. Be prepared for “Poulet à la crème et aux morilles” is not a light dish. But at the same time, sauce has very rich and interesting taste.

Restaurant is located in an old wood-supported building. It is decorated with various historical agricultural tools. The service is very friendly and helpful.
