A bit out of the way, but well worth the journey. This was our best meal in Senlis. The room is small but attractive. The menu is prix fixe and dependant on what the chef find appealing in the market each day. The result is very creative and delicious! We stayed nearby so observed it every evening. Sometimes it was completely full and other times there were just a few tables filled, so reservations are a good idea especially during busy tourist seasons.

Once we'd understood the menu and pricing (we had just done a long nerve racking journey in a classic car in the pouring rain!) we realised we were in for a treat. Service was prompt but not rushed. The flavours were original and wonderful. We're not easily pleased but the meal more than made up for a long, wet day. Very good value for money - we had 3 courses - and the portions were more than adequate. On a good night we might have managed all 5 but I doubt it and we both have 'healthy' appetites. Would go again even if we had to make a detour.

We visited this restaurant in September 2014 on our way home from holiday. It was excellent. On our way to the south of France we stayed in Senlis again and knew right away we wanted to visit this gem again. We were not disappointed! The concept is still the same, one set menu of 5 courses. Take 3, 4 or 5. We could not choose and took all five. They were all superb. Service was great too, and spoke English too. We can recommend this to any foodie!

This restaurant is different in that there is one menu prepared each day for dinner. You can take 5 courses--entree, fish, meat, cheese, and dessert--each prepared according to available ingredients and the chef's imagination. The options are to take 3 courses--entree, fish or meat, and dessert--or four courses (adding the cheese course) instead of the 5. Check the menu posted in the window to see if the day's selection appeals to you.
We chose the 3 course option and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Delicious food in a comfortable setting.

Overall we enjoyed our meal at the Julianon restaurant.
The service, although correct was slow,
as there was only one waitress serving an entire room.
Very good overall food, albeit a limited choice on the menu.
We particularly liked our starter (cuttlefish with a beet purée)
Very small portions -
the main dish looked like it was meant to be a starter.
In addition, they have no child menu.
We had asked beforehand if our two children would be able to share one dish (27 euros), as they couldn't provide a child meal.
This was possible, according to the waitress.
The dish came, accompanied by one empty plate,
to divide for ourselves.
I would have appreciated it if this had been done in the kitchen.
(Two tiny pieces of monkfish,
one turnip in (truth be told, a very tasty) broth)
On a final discordant note, after having left the restaurant and as we were walking back to our car, the restaurant called to inform us that they had made a mistake on the bill, and had under-charged us by 20 euros. They requested that we return and pay the difference.
They were barely apologetic about their mistake.
The incident, which seem to reflect the somewhat pusillanimous overall philosophy and tone of this restaurant, left us with a sour aftertaste.
