This is a small place with one person taking the orders and serving the food. However this did not affect the quality and timing of our service. The menu is small with two choices in each category but the flavours are to die for. Presentation is so creative it seemed a shame to break it up. Definitely with going to... More

Quote from my daughter: "Never have I seen mom attack a dessert like that." This meringue cake floating in a sea of citrus delight was a thing of beauty and tasted like heaven. Our main courses in this perfectly trendy little restaurant with the most adorable owners were equally amazing. It helped a bit here that my oldest daughter speaks... More

This is the perfect restaurant- patron host, short menu of the day, cooking of the very highest standard and great wine list at reasonable prices. There is a good bistro ambience and the patron provides timely and professional service. Apart from Japanese I have not eaten as well as this in England or Australia for many years. Great value by...

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner at this small but comfortable place. The service was very attentive and friendly and was quite patient with our terrible French. The ingredients were fresh and of very high quality but the creative way they were employed in the dishes was what made this place special. A very nice change of pace... More

The front of house is not friendly or attentive and basically ignored us while attending to other tables. The wine is decent and the food is tasty but we never relaxed or felt welcome while spending a decent amount for dinner. Empty glasses and plates were left ignored on our table top, the service felt forced as we had to... More

Six of us ate dinner here on a recent Saturday evening and were pleased overall with the experience. The food was quite different and innovative compared to many others and was of excellent quality and provenance. There is a comprehensive wine list as well. The owner who was serving at the front of house seemed stretched as he dealt with... More

My wife and I recently had lunch at this restaurant in Beaune. It is located just outside of the center of Beaune but was relatively easy to find. Service was very good and as was the food. We very much enjoyed the meal and would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Beaune.

The strange bald man who runs the place is rude like a Parisian. They do not like to deviate from their set formule menu. For a restaurant that emphasizes fresh vegetables, they do not have vegetarian options. Very limited wine by the glass choices. For what we got, I felt like the appetizer and entree were overpriced at 38€. There... More

We went to eat at Pepita's place and it was absolutely delightful. A great menu, catering as well for celiacs like me, and an even better talk with Herself ;-) I love her philosophy about food and her maintaining standards like no OGMs, no hybrids, and help for the producers who have the same way of looking at the food....
