We enjoyed our 3 courses lunch on a hot summer afternoon in this exquisite restaurant. The food is delicious with delicate flavours and the chocolate soufflé tart is to die for! Waiters are friendly and one of them (Benjamin) speaks really good English, explaining the menu to us. Will definitely be back for dinner the next time we are in Dijon!

We had two nights of modest brasserie/pizza dinners and I decided we needed something better for our last night in Dijon. This was terrific...more than just a meal. It was a learning experience, an event, a show, and a great meal. We had seven courses, and I loved not having to choose. We just enjoyed whatever came, and everything was explained in English. While this is more than we like to spend for dinner normally, it was a special occasion and it was worth it. It was a memorable and fun evening, and we were definitely full and happy at the end!

For the price of 55€, you will be offered no less than a 6 courses tasting menu, offering the finest ingredients only. The team is young and friendly, and I loved the dining room decoration which is brilliant, gathering modernity and tradition.
One criticism only : the service is very slow, and as the dishes are rather small, you remain hungry until late night.
All the rest is great. A must try! :-)

Seriously one of the best meals of my life, including value for money. There's only one fixed price menu with about 6 courses, and small open kitchen where you can watch a large team of chefs dance around each other to produce a series of delicate and beautiful dishes. The food was all carefully introduced (in English), occasionally with additional broths or sauces applied at the last second. The asparagus and the pork belly were particularly exquisite.

We found the staff knowledgable and, for once, unpretentious; the atmosphere cosy, and the wine list quite reasonable. It was recommended by the locals we were staying with as the best in Dijon and they can't be far off. We also ate at a two Michelin star restaurant in Dijon, which was superb, but not better than La Maison des Cariatides. Perhaps the absence of Michelin stars keeps the price down a bit, making it a very affordable gourmet experience. Book a few weeks in advance.

Everything is right in this restaurant: design, people, service, atmosphere and of course food. And probably best quality/price ratio we have experienced in France. Just go and try...
