“To many fixed menus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

My wife and i went on our last night of 3 in Besancon after being recommend by our hotel , it was a shame because the food we had was lovely but there was so little choice on the a la cart menu the greatest choice was the fixed menus which all came with various wines which i did not want . The service was good , wine selection was good even though we did not want any.
The atmosphere was good but the restaurant felt cold with no heart and looking a bit dated.

“One of the best restaurants in Besancon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

We go fairly regularly to Besancon, and always struggle to find good restaurant options, especially as we are vegetarian. This is a good option. Lovely terrace, quality food, some vegetarian options (eg croute aux morilles), good service, excellent creme brule! We'll be back.

“Popular restaurant with locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2011

Chez Barthod is part of the complex of a wine shop and a gourmet grocery store. The restaurant was packed with locals on the Thursday evening we were there. There were lots of local specialties on the menu, the food was good (not exceptional, but quite good); the wine choices were excellent; and the service very friendly and very good. Recommended, but do make reservations.

“Wine with food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

Barthod is a wine shop that also has one of the best restaurants in town. One of the great things is that the wine is only a little more expensive than in the shop. Go for the set menu that comes with a different wine with each course. The food is of a high standard but they should change the menu more frequently.

Classy restaurant with a very nice setting. The food is a bit pricey, but I never got disappointed with what I ordered.
