This was a gem in Beaune. I made the reservation in advance of my trip based on reviews. I was not disappointed. The food was great, the wine selection excellent and the ambiance lively. A true French dining experience. The environment is Bistro with individual tables and a large community table. I elected for the community table which I was... More

A friend recommended this restaurant in Beaune and we had dinner there in April. We were not disappointed. It took us ages to decide what to have as everything looked so good. i had the milk-fed lamb which was delicious and not overcooked (I so often get lamb overcooked in restaurants). My friend had the rabbit in a creamy sauce... More

It has been two years since we dined at Caves Madeleine and it was on the top of our list for our return trip to Beaune. We had a delightful and delicious lunch. The staff was terrific and friendly - as always. We will be back anytime we are in Beaune.

We visited this restaurant last evening with an overnight stay on our drive down to the South of France. We booked a couple of days before arriving and managed to get the last two seats in the restaurant and so glad we did! Both the food and service were excellent and as our French is not great it was a... More

We spent a week in Beaune and dined out lunch and dinner and this was among the best restaurants in town. Very small and very cozy and quite comfortable, the room is casual and laid back, though the food, service, are not, and certainly not the wine list which is the best we found. The menu, on a chalk board... More

The food was excellent. We took a little apéritif then starter maindish and dessert. The waiting time between the dishes was somewhat long but after getting the food we forgot about it. As we did not want to take a bottle for two the young and friendly sommelier took care of giving us wines with the food and it was... More

We had dinner with 6 people in this place in October 2016. You must reserve a table early, because the restaurant is full permanently. This place is like small brasserie at first sight - very simple furniture, long wooden tables and seats, short menu in blackboard on the wall. But wine list is nice and quality of food is excellent!... More

We had one night in Beaune and as we come here every year we have a short list of places we want to have dinner. Caves Madeleine is one of them. This place is one of the better restaurants in Beaune and very affordable. The menu is written on the wall and is prepared with whatever goes at that time... More

Caves Madeleine is a wonderful place and I am happy every time I have the chance to delight myself with this gem. I value quality, tasty, unaltered local, respectful ressource. This tiny restaurant understands how exquisite and simple can come together. Few can understand that simple also has a value, a great one, if simple meets passion and honesty. I... More
