We had a fabulous dinner in this beautiful, out of the way spot near Traverse City Michigan. What a find! Great food and a nice staff. We had the onion soup and the lamb and both were excellent. Nice atmosphere!

Although we had intended to dine at a recommended Italian restaurant nearby, we hadn't made reservations and when we arrived there was no seating left for the evening. They referred us to La Becasse and we are grateful. It was a lovely evening from amuse bouche to creme brulee. Wellington, our server, led us through our journey with a lovely... More

You can never go wrong with La Bacasse. We sat outside as it was too hot inside, a lovely atmosphere! The service was very good and all our dinners were very good and presented so beautifully. The only complaint I have is that all though my duck breast was amazing, the leg was dry and felt that it had been... More

Our meal from start to finish was a sensory delight. While contemplating the limited menu, we were treated to delicious bread and a delightful appetizer of cream cheese and something yummy on some type of toast/bread? I chose the parmesan encrusted white fish--it was superb. Others equally enjoyed grilled rack of lamb and beef tenderloin. The piece de resistance was... More

Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the food... More

The challenge in rural Michigan is to find a restaurant that serves other than pasta and hamburgers, especially to a family of 12, including 5 young children. The staff at La Becasse were most welcoming and attentive having high chairs and children's menus at the table ready for our arrival. The food (especially my duck) was delicious and nicely presented:... More

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday here- and what a treat! A quaint unassuming cottage with incredible food! We loved everything from start to finish- although the pork chop w goat cheese fondue and the rhubarb cobbler topped our list! They were very gracious and accommodating to our 12 year old boys- we will definitely be back every time we... More

We were looking forward to an outstanding dining experience that never materialized. Although we were seated at the time of our reservation on a crowded Saturday night, it took nearly 15 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us once seated. The waiter apologized and did his best to be more attentive throughout the meal. He partially succeeded. There were, however, long... More

The quality and preparation of the dishes are what sets this place apart. It's not much to look at, but looks can be deceiving. It is very small, but the food and service is outstanding. Reservations in advance during the summer betray the value of this outstanding small venue in northern Michigan.

We love La Becasse, Chef Guillaume seems to pay very close attention to every detail, the food is scrumptious, the service is ideal, beverages and wines are first rate.
