“Lovely Setting, Friendly Service, Agreeable Food - A Relaible Treat”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I live about 40 minutes away during the summer, and as other pleasant restaurants in the region have been closing down at an alarming rate, the Chateau d'Igé and Frédéric Doucet in Charolles remain by far the best options around Cluny. The chateau itself dates back to the 13th century, although it has been much overhauled since then, but it is the gardens that make this venue such an agreeable one in summer. On warmer evenings dinner is served around the Chateau's spectacular pond. Excellent value, a clever children's menu, an interesting wine list, and the attentive hotel owner and manager, always casting her eye over the proceedings and seeking to enhance them, make this a terrific place to entertain, particularly during the summer, and a treat to look forward to en famille. Bravo!

“Chateau d'Igé Restaurant -- Tops Tops Tops”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have been dining at the Chateau d'Igé since 1992, and loving every single meal I've had there. In writing this review of my latest experience, mid-August 2012, I am really summing up a longstanding love affair. So, be forewarned. Nothing negative here.

Ambiance. The core of the building is a medieval chateau (12th century), the spirit of which lives on as boldly as ever, despite modernizing decor here and there. Outside you'll find a garden as beautiful as it is complex -- one part aquatic, another perennials, another potager. The lovely owner always encourages her guests to take a stroll in the garden before settling in for apéros. Don't miss it.

Food. For anybody who loves Burgundian "soul food" at its best and most refined, this is your place. The chefs (and there have been several over the years) have an exquisite feel and respect for the great traditions of southern Burgundian cuisine, and you'll discover at least SOME GREAT DISH of the repertoire on all the menus, from simplest to gourmet. Needless to say this reviewer views paradise as St. Peter serving out foie gras, and I believe the prince of the Apostles would be happy with the terrines and escaloppes with chutneys on offer here. The escargot are both classic and innovative (one year it was escargot ravioli, to die for), and as a main dish you can find no better preparation of Charollais beef or Bresse chicken. Every single time I've been here I cannot resist the Grand Marnier dessert soufflé. And before that, if you have room for it, the Chateau trundles out one of the best laden cheese trollies in the region. The wine list is brilliantly organized and covers the gamut. If you want to pay top euros for the best of Burgundy -- it's here to be had. But simpler local sweet wine for your foie gras, a Maconnais white for your starter, and a great local Cote Chalonnais for your entrecôte is likewise at your command.

Service. From heaven. Madame is as gracious a lady, welcoming a hostess, and passionate a professional in her business as you can hope for. She has graciously indulged my fractured French for well over a decade, but will just as happily switch to English etc.etc. as needed. The staff have always been on par professionally, and personally interesting and charming. They all "know their stuff" consummately well, and it's always such a great pleasure to have this level of care and attention during a meal.

It was startling to learn this time that the owner is considering selling the Chateau to an investor with means to extend restoration to all parts of the grounds, and hence expanding the numbers of clients. Hopefully the standard established over the years will not shift with this change, and of course change is inevitable, even in "back water Burgundy."

But for now, if you're in the region, don't hesitate to stop here and experience one of the memorable dining pleasures of your life. Honest, guv!

“Great Food and Service - A Memorable Dinner”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

The food and service at d'Ige was awesome. We had a group of 8 ranging from adult to 13. They were extremely patient as we tried to figure out what we wanted to eat and smiled as we all moaned at the great taste of each of our meals. The meal was a highlight of our 10 day trip.

“Close to a perfect meal in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We loved this restaurant so much that we ate here twice, something we never do on vacation, especially to a place renowned for its food. Everything was wonderful. The escargots were the best we'd ever eaten. The main courses were delicious. We wanted to eat all of the cheeses. The chocolate dessert was to die for. The rooms were lovely and elegant, befitting such an old chateau. The service was gracious. All in all, Chateau d'Ige is a Bourguignon experience not to be missed.
