Description: The Guardian has called it 'the best restaurant in France', and H��tel Jean-Paul Jeunet was voted 'Establishment of the Year 2006' by the prestigious restaurant guide Gault Millau ��� so its safe to say that the 2-Michelin-starred Restaurant Jean-Paul Jeunet in Arbois is a highly desirable dining destination. Tucked away in a far-flung corner of Jura, the restaurant is renowned for Jeunet's light, contemporary cuisine which is filled with flavours from yesteryear. Best known for using traditional ingredients in exceptional ways, Jeunet's signature dishes include foie gras poached in Macvin caramel; buttered snails cooked in liquorice flavoured bouillon; and warm chocolate soup flavoured with pine bark. The rustic dining room ��� decorated with colourful canvases and an open Franche-Comt�� fireplace - exudes an atmosphere of hushed awe, and this divine establishment is guaranteed to impress even the most spoiled gourmands.

Reviewed July 1, 2010

We stayed at the Jean-Paul Hotel for two nights and it was a mistake. Our room was expensive. The staff was professional but not particularly friendly. Everything has been over advertised on their website. The weather was very hot so we had to sleep with the windows open because there was no air conditioning. This would not have been a problem if the bell tower across the street did not ring every quarter hour. We were visiting friends or we would have checked out after one night. We chose not to eat in the restaurant because our lodging was so underwhelming that we thought the restaurant would be the same.
