We've eaten lunch here perhaps a dozen times and never tire of the warm intimate atmosphere with an open cooking fire along one of the walls. We understand that there's a new owner but we've not noticed any significant difference -- service and food are still everything we could want. The clientele seem mostly to be working locals from the... More

This is a very good place for a nice and relaxing lunch and dinner if you are visiting the heart of bourgogne. Totally unpretentious small restaurant. Very reasonable "fixed price menus". They bring the whole terrine at your table and it tastes so good you dont want to stop. I took the chef appetizer for the day which was salad... More

We were staying close by and were recommended to give this a try. It was very nice, albeit noisy and full as befits a Saturday evening. All sorts of dishes, but their highlight is their meat cooked on a grill over the fire. If you like lots of meat, this is the place for you. It was nicely cooked. I... More

Very traditional styles of burgundian food and an impressive open range fire/cooker for grilled meats. All very pleasant - but perhaps not "memorable".

This restaurant is simply amazing! I've been there at least 6 times over the last 3 years and it has never disappointed me! The meat is just amazing and the wine list is huuuuuge! Just one tip: make sure you're very very hungry when you get there!!

This is an authentic French countryside auberge, with really friendly staff who also speak excellent English. Original auberge atmosphere, with a large open fire grill, wooden tables and even a group with a nice dog sitting in the back of the room! We were not hungry at all, but after seeing an enormous 1.2kg steak being thrown in the open... More

We were looking for an authentic Burgundy style restaurant and this one came as close as they can get. The Jambon Persillé was just fantastic and then we had grilled beef from the "fire grill" that was excellent. The service was nice and friendly and the waiters spoke good enough English to keep us out of trouble.

Lovely food, great staff, lovely ambience, good value. Excellent wine selection from the area. We had steaks and starters - it's a proper french restaurant. Don't go here if you want to ask for tomato sauce.
