We lunched at the Cheval Noir, and enjoyed it so much that we decided to dine here (same owners.) This one specializes in local dishes and it also was full of local people, a good sign. We had the 39 euro prix fixe dinner that started with a buttery foie gras, then veal followed by four nice cheeses. A completely non PC dinner that would be illegal in California. The dessert, chocolate liegeois, was very rich and too heavy after such a rich and heavy dinner and we both wished we had ordered the raspberry-rhubarb crumble.

I did not care for the faux stone walls that gave the expectation of a cool cave but delivered a stifling and clammy experience that was too hot and low on oxygen. Better ventilation would have made a big difference.

The staff was pleasant and helpful.

Our hotelier at the Belle Époque advised us to try here and he wasn't wrong, I had booked ahead by email and on arrival we decided to sit outside as the weather was lovely. Subsequently all the tables outside filled up around us which made for a convivial atmosphere.

Service was good by the owner Frederique, and the two other staff and the food was very good too - I had Fois Gras followed by fillet steak some rose Cremant and a nice red burgundy both of which were reasonable prices.

I have booked to return in a few months with a group of friends

We had about 8 of us coming for lunch one afternoon. At first I was skeptical about what the food would be like because it just seemed like an ordinary joint. But the food was really good as was the service. Would not hesitate in going back.

We decided to have lunch here as the restaurant looked inviting and appeared on the outside to be a happy place ! However on being seated at a table by a lady who went to great lengths to tell us she was the owner , she then continued to tell us we must have 2 mains at least and we were not allowed to share a number of dishes as " she had to make money " . After explaining we would be buying drinks etc. she was still adamant we must have 2 main courses , as she was so rude and arrogant and constantly raising her voice to talk over us we decided it better to leave. The irony of this is we quickly found another restaurant that was happy to oblige our request , enjoyed our lunch and happily paid 150 euro

We went here because it was recommended by our hotel. We were greeted warmly, and shown to a very good window table. Service was attentive and warm. We had a fish dish and lamb. Both were good, but not excellent. The wine list was a good cross-section of Burgundy and priced well. Although we enjoyed a good meal with very. Good service, there are other better value options in town.
