We have been to the L'Incontournable before. It was excellent. As that was the case, we returned. It is even better. Really, one of the best meals we have ever had. Service, food, presentation, wine list, all first rate. This place makes the concept of the Michelin stars obsolete as it is first rate in every respect. It is a reason to visit Beaune.

Absolutely loved this place. It was recommended by a local owner of b & B La Maison Blanche. She even made reservations for us. The restaurant is located in a care, which makes it very unique and cozy. Chef came out to introduce himself and was interested in our reaction of the dishes that followed. The food was amazing! My husband is a gourmand and ordered brains, which were incredibly good :-). Highly recommend this place when in Beaune!

The restaurant is located on Rue Carnot, the main Beaune walking street; to reach it, you’ll have to go down along a flight, since l’Inconturnable is inside an underground cellar.
Ambient seems to be refined, with basic classy furniture and a cocoon-like environment; a nice swing background music completes the picture.
The restaurant is split into two dining rooms, not really very roomy, which means that it’s better to make an advance reservation, to avoid the risk to find the structure complete.
The waiter is very kind, attentive and professional; in case you’d not speak any French, he’s speaking English too.
We note a nice habit by the chef: he comes to the dining room to personally welcome all the guests, once they’re seated, and he comes once again later on, to check and verify that all the meals have been appreciated.
The menu is various, proposing several Burgundy specialties and a good range of local wines (all very expensive).
We ate fromage blanc (white cheese) and frog legs with parsil, as appetizers, followed by a main dish constituted by steamed salmon with fine herbs, garnished with creamy potatoes and ratatouille. We finished sharing a plate of excellent Burgundy cheeses.
As drink, two glasses of St. Aubin white wine, very good, but served in two “supermarket glasses”, a bit out of the class level shown by the restaurant.
Good quality/price ratio; honest bill, in line with similar restaurants in Beaune.

What a great meal. No this isn't Michelin 3 star, but it is fabulous. We have been eating out in Beaune for years and last night was definitely one of the very best meals. Small but adequate wine list, small menu, but everything is covered. Very good choices on the Prix fix menu. Everyone in our group raved about the flavour.
