“Popular with the locals -always a good sign!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Just passing through on our travels ,we decided to re-visit this lovely restaurant.We were here a year ago and can report that the atmosphere is still great with a mixture of couples and larger groups but not rowdy.The food was great -steak tartare for my husband and beef pave'for me which was cooked exactly as I asked.only downside is the menu is for either 2courses or 3courses which makes it a little pricey if you only take one as we did.Will return next time in the area but will try to book as we were lucky to get a table.

“Good choice but it takes time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

The service time is very poor which lets the restaurant down. The serving staff were friendly and were generally ok Our first course took 40 minutes to be served and was waiting on the counter whilst the bar staff had a chat. The food was delicious and good portion size. The main course was served much quicker and again full flavour although the duck brochette was tough. The chicken and st Jacques was a perfect combination. The wine selection is Bourgogne only.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

We had our first delicious french meal at this restaurant. Good service, good food, modern decor, but maybe a little highly priced.

“excellent food, outstanding value, chic decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

We stayed at the Mercure Hotel in the business area and were a bit concerned about being out of the main restaurant district. We picked up the recommendations for the Carte Blanche from two french Tripadvisor contributors and were thrilled to find an outstanding modern restaurant/wine bar five minutes walk from the hotel. The 30 euro three course dinner had an excellent selection of classic french dishes with a modern twist, beautifully presented and served with great efficiency and enthusiasm by well trained staff. This part of Dijon is being dug up at the moment for the new tram system so a certain amount of orienteering was required to get to the restaurant door - but well worth the effort!
