We enjoyed a lovely evening at this cozy and friendly restaurant run by a husband and wife team. Not quite as fancy as some other spots on town, but definitely the best meal we had in our four days in Vezelay. Also best at accommodating a vegetarian. Merci beaucoup!

The lovely wife and I stopped here for lunch recently. A warm welcome awaits, and we were allowed to use our not perfect French. The menu is enticing and the food cooked wonderfully. Everything we had was wonderful. The cafe gourmand as a desert is my personal recommendation. Thank you for a wonderful meal and experience. We will visit again.... More

We celebrated our anniversary here following reviews on trip advisor. We Were not disappointed. From the start to finish we were welcomed and had great rapport with the lady host - who looked after us and in fact could do no more. The food was stunning and good value. We so enjoyed the intimate setting - the small restaurant has... More

We have visited Vezelay on many occasions, mainly out of season (not so many tourists!). For some reason this little gem had escaped our notice. But what a delight to discover. Run by a team of two our recent visit was a delight from start to finish. Our cocker was made welcome though I doubt the small interior could accommodate... More

We were served by Maria-Victoria, the lovely co-owner of the restaurant. We had a reservation for 8:30pm however, by the time we finished admiring the Basilica Madeleine and started walking down hill it was already 9pm. We arrived at 9:30pm and were delighted to find that the table was kept open for us. We learned something new about the French... More

We ate here last Monday on a warm and sunny evening and had a wonderful meal on the terrace. As soon as we sat down the Patron, seeing that the sun was right in my husband's face, extended the awning to give us shade and we knew we were in good hands! We ordered from the set menus, 18 euros... More

We were warmly welcomed by the owner, a lovely, friendly lady. The service was excellent, and the meal very good. Attention to detail was appreciated, and the small cheese sample we were given to taste before deciding on our dessert was a lovely touch. A quiet terrasse just outside the main town gate.

Our group of 7 visited Vezelay primarily to see the historic Church of Mary Magdalene and the beautiful village. For luncheon we visited A La Fortune Du Pot Restaurant which has been highly ranked and were not disappointed. Our meal started with a local cheese tart, which was delicious but very filling. The main was the traditional beef Bourgogne, which... More
