Plenty of rustic French cuisine, especially the meats. Be sure to load up on those if that is your thing.

Had exellent local faire here. The pork knuckle with their local mustard was to die for and my son loved their frogs legs. The sundae with the creme de cassis was a delicious dessert. Make an effort to speak French and you will find the staff very pleasant.

The first waiter was totally unfriendly, but hopefully a kind waitress came at the end. The cook was not even able to cook fried eggs without that stinky and dirty cheese called Epoisses (the one that has worms on it very often) even if we would pay for the same price. Then, they came 5 times to ask us if... More

If you're looking for local Dijon food.. this place was great. The service was helpful and friendly. They spoke English, and offered us a menu in English. The wine list was very reasonable. The beef dishes were all amazing, fresh and very tasty.. presentation was good, but on the rustic side. The room is warm and inviting. We would go... More

Two dishes memorable. Lamb is terrific. You have to try it here absolutely. Bone marrow is quite special. For those okay with a bit of greasy taste, it's also very good Nice atmosphere.

This place for me just has everything i want from a restaurant. It may not look the most impressive but it is full of charm and has a great atmosphere. The service is the casual end of formal the is a mixture of rustic/ regional/ gourmet. With things like having a choice of their local cheeses put in order of... More

Brilliant location with an amazing wine list. We loved the grill, the meat cuts were delicious. Our wines definitely was worth the money, we love burgundy for that. They even have an internal parking and the staff was ever so friendly. We strongly recommend should you wish to visit a rustic and place-driven restaurant without the white table cloth and... More

Enter through old arch way over ancient cobblestones and you are way away from any street noises. Outside seating is under a half glass extension and chairs are quite comfortable. Waiters are very very good and quite friendly. I must admit that reading other reviews I did not pick up that this is primarily a BBQ cooking style restaurant. Cooking... More

We went because there were very few decent restaurants open on Sunday, but you know what? I will go there next time regardless of the day of the week. I was expecting a tourist trap, but found a pleasant place with good food, reasonable prices and friendly service.

Normally don't review but saw very mixed group of reviews on here so felt like adding to the "very good category". The welcome we had was excellent and the service also. The wine we had was expensive but worth it, a delicious half-bottle of Puligny from Girardin and some Vieux Telegraphe for red. The boeuf Bourgogne, tournedos, pigeon, faux filet... More
