Description: The Guardian has called it 'the best restaurant in France', and H��tel Jean-Paul Jeunet was voted 'Establishment of the Year 2006' by the prestigious restaurant guide Gault Millau ��� so its safe to say that the 2-Michelin-starred Restaurant Jean-Paul Jeunet in Arbois is a highly desirable dining destination. Tucked away in a far-flung corner of Jura, the restaurant is renowned for Jeunet's light, contemporary cuisine which is filled with flavours from yesteryear. Best known for using traditional ingredients in exceptional ways, Jeunet's signature dishes include foie gras poached in Macvin caramel; buttered snails cooked in liquorice flavoured bouillon; and warm chocolate soup flavoured with pine bark. The rustic dining room ��� decorated with colourful canvases and an open Franche-Comt�� fireplace - exudes an atmosphere of hushed awe, and this divine establishment is guaranteed to impress even the most spoiled gourmands.

We had the fabulous Parfum menu. Each course was a work of art with the ingredients and flavours blended harmoniously together. The wine list has examples of the very best that the Jura has to offer and is well-priced. The sommelier was very helpful and had a delightful sense of humour. Mr Jeunet, who made the rounds of the tables twice, was gracious and friendly. The service was perfection. It was certainly a Michelin starred experience.

We ate lunch at Jean-Paul Jeannet and we were thrilled with the food and service that we received. We showed up with no reservation for lunch at 12:00 and they happily seated us with our 3 small children. The kids were engaged in their technology during lunch as my wife and myself enjoyed fine dining. I would highly recommend Jean-Paul Jeunet.

Returned again to JP Jeanet. As on each of the previous trips, the service was faultless, the food excellent and the prices reasonable for what you get. If you stick to local wines and consult the sommelier, you will experience wines at very good prices that compliment the food perfectly. Given the two stars, the expectation level is always high, but they have always matched out expectations and hopes

Came to the region to visit the Jura wineries before heading to Burgundy and saw all the stars in Michelin guide. We had a large group so I got to sample much of the menu. While the food was excellent, it did not blow me away. Service was very slow and turned into a very long dinner and not a memorable one. When you see the reviews for a restaurant in a out of the way area you tend to expect excellence. We planned our trip around our dining experience and nobody was raving. Exceptional yes, worth the trip..... maybe.

The fod is so tasty as usual in the jura, andperfectly cooked . I only disagree in the exagerate fluffy service, with a waitress that spoke too much, too many amouse bouche, an exagerated choice of bread and cheese.

I go to a starred restaurant to have an experience of the chef's taste, I really do not see the point of that huge useless proposals.

Price is too elevated in my opinion also considerating that is based in Arbois not Paris downtown
