“Not what we expected”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We arrived quite late a Monday evening, only one couple sitting on the "terrace". The waiter was very friendly, and made a good impression. L'escargot, coq-au-vin, and a sorbet, plus another starter and lamb was ordered, accompanied by wine and beer.
The starters were tasty, just average. Unfortunately, the main courses weren't what we expected from the French cousine. The cock was very plain, not much taste, I think it should reflect that it's a Bourgogne specialty, and the lamb didn't taste like or have the texture of lamb at all. Having had much better food in France, this will get a lower comparative rating.

“C'est Magnifique!”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We found this delightful restaurant near the Place de Liberte and were absolutely wowed by the atmosphere, the service, and the unbelievable meals. We were a party of 5 and it was our last night in Dijon. So thrilled that we happened upon this amazing restaurant!

“French bistro at its best”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We had the three course wet menu and it was very nice. The restaurant was very busy but the service was great and friendly. I had poulet with mustard and it was very 'mustard' but very tasty - thoroughly enjoyable menu, service and ambience.

“Friendly, unpretentious and great food”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

They had a group booked so apologeticly I was ushered to one of the tables in the bar area and also with regrets told that coc-au-vin was not available that evening. However, everything else turned out well - a substantial salad paysanne, a rich and plentiful helping of boeuf bourgignonne on fresh tagliatelli and a wide choice of well kept local cheese. It was accompanied by a very acceptable glass of pinot noir. This is not the place if you want to eat of fancy pates using designer, but often ill-ballanced, cuttlery but it if you want good honest food.

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Not knowing anything about local cuisine, I liked the Burgundy Menu they offered. The escargot were amazing and the beef bourguignon was tasty. I was disappointed by the glass of local pinot noir. The service was courteous and efficient. I would return.
