“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We'd planned to eat in another restaurant in the same road but on arrival there was a notice in the window saying it was closed for the holidays. So we found this restaurant by chance as it was a few doors away. Young friendly staff were very welcoming and the food was perfect. We're so glad we went and we will be visiting again the next time we're in Beaune. Certainly it's the best meal we've had in this lovely town.

“Absolutely horrific food”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

I cannot express enough how bad this restaurant is.
Starter: salade verte aux copeaux de legumes (lettuce with shaved vegetables)
The lettuce was at least a week old, yellow and rotten

Main course: classic burger
Meat tasted ok but was doused in bad mayo. Again very tired lettuce on the side. Fries were coated in cumin and paprika.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

A friendly and efficient welcome - a no fuss menu and food which was cooked perfectly by the chefs in full view.

Beaune has a lot of restaurants to choose from but i don't think many will top this for the quality of cooking.

“A wonderful surprise in beautiful Beaune”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

My husband and I dined here three weeks ago, after being recommended it by a local. We're both seasoned travellers and diners/cooks, so we have high expectations... we were not disappointed. The food was superb - interesting, modern twists on French classics... the wine list was excellent and very reasonably priced (the wines by the glass in particular were great value), and the service was great. And it was all very reasonably priced. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone who happens to visit beautiful Beaune!

“Couldn't agree more.......go!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We, too, wonder what could have gone wrong with Geoff. We couldn't agree more with the previous reviewers eddieghay and lucyvfoley.
A small menu often means that food is being prepared on the spot as was the case here.
The menu riffs on classical French cooking in a surprising and fresh way. The magret de canard with fresh apricots and nectarines was delicious. Wonderful wines and very competent advice given on a choice to suit our taste, Saint Romain Vieille Vigne.
