“Excellent food at very fair prices”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopping in Bourg en Bresse on the way back from Provence, we took the advice of past reviews and chose to eat at this small restaurant in a street with many other choices. The room is deceptively large but the owners have spaced out the tables which gives an open feel to the place - they could quite easily pack in more covers, but this probably suits a small cooking and serving staff.

The food is of high quality and whether you choose one of the set menus (the 4 course € 26 one is excellent value) or eat from the carte, the local ingredients are handled with care and attention and the quantities quite large.

Good selection of wines (some by the glass) compliment the food perfectly. Service is attentive and the patrons wife is courteous if a bit cool - maybe she is shy.

Would happily recommend eating here.

“Small restaurant with lovely regional food and wine”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Mets et Vins is a small restaurant with a small number of tables. But it has a big distance between tables and tables for couples are well separated from tables for groups.

The food is excellent and reflects the region. The wine list is good value with some nice Bourgogne wines at reasonable prices. We particularly liked the foie gras de canard (both the terrine and the escalopes) and the Poulet de Bresse with truffled risotto. The millefeuille fraises provided a delightful finish.

“Great local French restaurant”
Reviewed April 14, 2010

This restaurant is on a fairly quiet street with a number of other restaurants. While there is little to distinguish it on the outside from its competitors, we found that It serves classic regional food cooked with skill and served with charm. Our meal included a generous portion of pan-fried foie gras perfectly cooked and served with a classic veal stock reduction and wild mushrooms. Some of our party went on to a classic creamy poulet de Bresse, while others had fish with wild mushrooms again, or steak cooked to order. While this is clearly a one-chef operation, and there is therefore a limit to the amount of labour each dish can contain, within this limitation everything was well thought through and well-executed, and for a pleasant meal with friends without breaking the bank, this restaurant would be an excellent choice.
