One of the oldest and still very nice traditional french food in an old world setting which was nice and classy. Not at all expensive for the fine food and wine they serve.

Really nice old world ambience inside with lively table settings in reputedly one of the oldest hostelleries in France. Good wine selection and very correct prices and good fixed menu options. The food was traditional french fine cuisine cooked nicely and well presented.

Ultra slow service, too bad because the restaurant has a nice history. It's a long way from Paris so you're already tired. Food is overrated.

As others have written here, the Hostellerie de la Croix d'Or is an ancient monument having been in business in one form or another for centuries. The food and service, however, are completely up to date. While not a temple of haute cuisine, they produce...More

To have lunch at the oldest hostellerie of France! That is quite an experience. Although it was really hot and the terrace of Hostellerie de la Croix d'Or was appealling, we couldn't resist to sit inside this 13th century house. Everything in this place breaths...More
