We had read about this little restaurant and wanted to try it. I had the aubergine lasagne and my husband had the choux pastry with local creamy cheese. Both were delicious. As the next day was a fete day, our friendly waiter suggested we book for lunch but we had planned a visit to Noyers sur Serein. We decided to... More

Very good environment to chill, do some work and drink some region wine. The back garden is perfect for summer time and the costumer service was perfect.

We were looking for somewhere to have a light lunch and saw this place not far from the tourist office. We were directed through to the garden, which was full of hydrangeas in bloom and a lovely spot on a hot day. Having been given a mini blackboard showing that day's specials, we both chose courgette and goats cheese tart... More

A light menu is perfect for lunch in Avallon. Children welcomed with a choice of books. Salads and good local wines. Stands out in a quiet town.

I convinced my family to exit the highway and go to this restaurant. Best decision of the day. Very nice restaurant, typical French decor, on a budget. My French great father said that the food was as good as what her mum made him. If think that says it all.

Take the natural one and enjoy. Small cup of water and you're all set. The staff is the smiling type and there are all sort of travel books to make you smarter. Cocoa.

This was our second visit to Avallon and the second visit to Dame Jeanne. The first time we took afternoon tea, but this time we had lunch. Tables are set out in two period rooms with a peaceful atmosphere. The garden was closed as it was a cold October day. We wanted a lunch that was not too filling and... More

We stopped by for a light lunch and enjoyed delicious homemade smoked salmon quiche with salad. Service was with a smile and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

By far the cosiest and nicest place to enjoy any kind of hot drink, snack - salted or sweet, light lunch or afternoon tea in Avallon. In winter time you'll appreciate the warm wooden decor of a bourgeois town-house, and in the summer the peaceful little courtyard. For a salted meal try the heavenly Gougères filled with Epoisses, in my... More
