We had the distinct pleasure of dining in this lovely little establishment on two occasions while vacationing on the Canal de Burgogne. The woman who runs the restaurant always has a smile on her face and is very welcoming, and the waitress ensures that your every need is met, even if it might take awhile to get to your request...

What an interesting little place! Two ladies seem to run the show, and it's a little like you're dining at their house with a bunch of other guests. You're treated almost like family, and there are clearly plenty of people who come here regularly or at least are well-known by the owners. Somewhat quirky decoration with a homely feel. The...

At first sight, you'd think that this was just an ordinary restaurant, but you'd be very wrong. The lady owner has contrived to produce a terrific menu where all the courses are very well presented and extremely tasty. She also introduced us to the splendid Dampt wines from the Chablis district.

Great traditional French food at this restaurant. The goat cheese croustillant appetizer was incredibly delicious. I had the boeuf bourguignon and it was one of the best and most unique versions of this dish I've had (the addition of cassis fruits was particularly interesting). The wait staff was attentive and our food arrived quickly. I had the impression that this... More

Although Tonnerre doesn't have the same range of attractions as some of its tourist hotspot neighbours, we liked the town. It is rather reminiscent of the France of 40 years ago and none the worse for that. Compared with tourist hell holes like Vezelay, it is quite charming. Le St Pere is a lovely little restaurant which offered us a... More

We visited St Pere for lunch for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The menu was extensive with various menu options, all at a very good value. The food was served with a smile by a team of very helpful and friendly waiting staff. The food was fresh, not over complicated but was made with care and attention. My... More

A nice restaurant located right before you get into the center of Tonnerre. Has ivy all over the building in the front making it unique. The inside has a collection of antique coffee grinders. Not a fine dining place with linens but a few steps up from average. The service was slow and we had to wait for our menu,... More

We stayed just outside Tonnerre at a lovely B&B, and when we asked for great place to dine, the hosts suggested Le St. Pere in Tonnere. We went to Tonnere for a little sightseeing, and even though the town looked more like a ghost town, we still made the reservation for the following evening at St. Pere. I must admit... More

Tonnerre is an intersting enough town (albeit not as celebrated nor picturesque as its more famous neighbour, Chablis) but for us the highlight was a long lunch at Le St Pere. The restaurant was recommended to us by a wine merchant in Chablis and it did not disappoint. Madame was incredibly welcoming, happy to heat our baby's food and keep... More
