“Overpriced and not terribly good”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We dined at this restaurant. The decor is hardly inspiring but we had looked forward to the food. The amuse geule selection which was unceremoniously dumped in front of us all lacked flavour. We ordered two coup de champagne and were poured two small half glasses. I ordered a good half of burgundy to go with the starter. It was served tepid and, on complaint, the sommelier just dumped some more ice in the ice bucket. He cheerfully continued to pour tepid white wine without embarrassment. The foie gras was adequate but not that good. We both had a lobster confection for our main course. Again it was adequate but a rather sickly risotto accompanied it. The deserts were poor. We chose not to have coffee and so a range of meal ending treats was dumped in front of us. They were not nice. Overall, therefore, we left pretty dissatisfied. This restaurant does not merit a michelin star.

“Superb dining experience”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

En route to the south of France we enjoyed an excellent stop over in Tournus. Our evening at the Restaurant Greuze was memorable. We found the service friendly but appropriate. We chose the menu allowing us to choose a starter, half portion fish and meat course and dessert or cheese. Each dish was beautifully presented with a lovely combination of flavours. The white burgundy recommended by the sommelier was delicious. We thought the cost compared very favourably with a similar standard of dining at home. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. It would draw us back to an overnight stay in Tournus.

“More than one star”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We had a marvelous meal, with escargots as a starter and poulet de bresse as main. Dishes were extremely tasty and beautifully presented. The chocolate desert was to die for (as was the cheese). Our opinion : at least two stars!

“Pretentious stupidity”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Absolutely no idea what you are eating. No taste or in case you do taste something is awfull.
Chef things he is creating heaven and doesn't know he's serving carbage.
Service is only students with no clue on food, language or how to make you feel comfortable
Atmosphere; in a hospital is even nicer
Somelier is a nothing more than a nasty glass filler. The moment you take a sip he is next to you for a refill.
Price is outrageous; Euro 40, - for a starter?!!!

“What a night to remember!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I planned a 50th birthday dinner here, which became an engagement dinner by the time the big night rolled around. The food and wine were spectacular, the service impeccable and the whole experience will live with us forever. A very, very special place to go.
