Reviewed February 20, 2013

This tiny restaurant is in red wine producing Irancy and has become a victim of its own success as it's now almost impossible to get a table unless you book well in advance (several weeks in advance in the summer). It comprises 2 simple rooms - a bar room with a darts board, where local vine workers eat a plat du jour, have a coffee and maybe a round of darts. Totally basic and authentic. Next door is another simple room with a tiled floor, no table cloths and formica type tables - there are paper napkins. Service is extremely charming and pleasant and helpful but very slow because of the staff to table ratio. Probably about 10 tables in this room of varying sizes. They service a plat du jour menu and a more expensive a la carte. Wine comes by the carafe for a jug of good quality Irancy or by the bottle. All quite charming and nice.

The problems are, however, that the service, however nice, is terribly slow and that the food is not worth the wait. Our last meal there was a mixed meat terrine - terribly fatty and heavy (basically uneatable) - with some cornichons and a tiny salad. Main course was faux filet and chips. Chips were nice but the faux filet was as tough as the proverbial old boot. All in all rather expensive for a very mediocre meal in a pretty basic environment.

This sort of place works well if it's fairly quick at lunchtime and good value. This place charges restaurant prices for a very basic set up. For not much more money you can eat at the wonderful and infinitely better value (for what you get) Auberge des Chenets outside Avallon (a bit of a drive and no vineyards nearby but on the edge of a beautiful valley) or at one of several places in Chablis which offer similar standard food for better value. Irancy is a lovely village but we give up on Le Soufflot because it's just not good enough for the very slow service, very mediocre food and too high prices.
