“A Fabulous Gem in the Backstreets”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Four of us were looking for a restaurant early one Saturday evening when we found this small, deserted place. The menu was small but interesting so we went in and asked the maitre, Pierre, for a table. He checked his list and said he had just had a cancellation so could accommodate us. The ambience was great, the food was great, the service was great, and the wines were great. To top it all the prices were low for the quality on offer! The small unpretentious dining troom quickly filled up with locals who obviously knew where to come for a truly memorable occasion, All in all we could not fault this restaurant. .

“Superb ambience, food and wine!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

We have just returned to our hotel after an absolutely wonderful serendipitous evening! We had no idea where to eat and happened upon La Petite Adresse. The simple menu reflected the quality of the food...simply delicious! With the freshest of foods cooked with simple naturalness and complimented with delicious wines we had a delightful time. Pierre, the patron, was very welcoming and was an obvious hot with the regulars! Indeed, the interaction between us newcomers, the regulars and Pierre...we had an evening to remember!

“An excellent chance find, simple but good food and wine and a great atmosphere.”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We were wandering around Besançon looking to find a restaurant and chanced to find this place. It was early evening and was empty, so we were surprised when the patron said he had to check if he had a table. We soon found out why as the place filled up - we had been lucky that he had a cancellation. The food was simple but excellent. My wife and 2 friends had the pâté starter which was more than generous and thoroughly enjoyed. I am a vegetarian and was provided with an equally generous and tasty egg and tomato starter. The main courses were similarly appreciated. There was also great banter with the patron and other diners. All in all, a most enjoyable evening!

“Great find in old town”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

We had just finished shopping and were looking for a nice place for lunch, but at just after 13:15 we had left it a bit late. Most of the restaurants were full or not taking any more orders so we were resigned to eating in a fast food place :-(

However, we made one last try and we struck gold.

La Petite Adresse doesn't look much from the outside but the service and food are great! The owner / cook is very a friendly chatty sort and he told us the menu was limited as he buys all his ingredients fresh, he doesn't have a freezer. My wife took the morbiflette and I took the daily special (filet mignon with mushroom sauce).

For starters, you get a whole french loaf, a huge bowl of green salad with a deliscious home-made sauce and a bowl of equally deliscious home-made paté. Eat as much as you want, he will bring more! I took a half of the house wine and we finished off with coffees, one creme brulé and I took a calvados. Total price an unbelievably good value of €45.

Can't wait to go back!
