    The personnel does not made the impression, that we are welcome.... Food was ok, nothing we would order again. Nasty background music sounded like in a Chinese buffet restaurant. If you want an authentic restaurant, this one is not your choice...

    Food was bland, we didn’t even eat the duck entree because it just was not good. Server wasn’t very friendly. We sat for an hour before our check finally came.

    The restaurant had no garden seating but the food was very good. Don’t be put off by the simple exterior, the food was one of the best we had in Beaune. Go try it.

    We had a pleasant lunch. The food was good and the service was quick and friendly. Our only criticism was that the "wine by the glass" list was very limited and only of average quality.

    Nice but not very special to be honest. Nothing jumped out. Very limited wine list.

    The food was excellent and the wine list very good indeed. Both food and wine were very good value. The restaurant itself is modern and functional so not great for atmosphere but that did not detract from the evening! So, what let it down? It was a busy evening but the service suffered as a result. No problem with the server’s attitude, which was fine but it reached a point that things like clearing the table after our main course just took too long. However, on balance very good and we will return.

    The decor could use some work. There were few staff for how busy the restaurant was. Food was excellent, red wines by the glass were okay. We had the beef bourgignon, steak with Morile sauce, and burger, all very good. Started with the escargot and brioche, which was excellent.

    All the dishes we had were great, especially liked the red wine sauce that accompanied the bavette steak and the eggs with epoisse sauce was a wonderfully rich opening to our meal. The service was great, even though we didn't speak much French, the host/waitress kindly and patiently explained some items to us.

    A nice simple restaurant with really excellent Burgund cuisine. Very delicious. Price fair. My wife and myself tried different menues and were very happy and satisfied with the quality of the courses. The service was fully ok. The ambiente and atmosphere is somehow a bit dry and not really cozy. Overall it was excellent food for a fair prize and a nice experience.
