Travelling in Bourgougne and going south through Beaujolais you may well stop at this nice restaurant situated on the bank of Saône in Jassans-Riottier just opposite of the town Villefranche-sur-Saône. Both the terass and the inside is spacious, yet intimate. Modern interior with some style. Terass perfect in the summer by the river. The cooking is very good; a chef... More

A somewhat limited menu but very good raw materials used. The fixed price menu very good value. What really made it stand out were the staff who could not have been more welcoming to a solo traveller who had not booked. Being solo enabled me to watch the waiting staff in action. They were superbly trained.

We caught this restaurant on a Sunday night in August, when the staff seemed mostly the B team. Service was breathakingly slow and forgetful. With a bill of several hundred euros, being asked to settle at the cashier, rather than having the check brought to the table, seemed thoughtless. Food was, on balance, very good, although some dishes tried too... More

On a beautiful August evening we were lucky to be able to sit outside and enjoy the amazing view of the river. That alone would already be worth a visit of this nice place with open kitchen and large outdoor terrace. On top of that the food really got the extra points. The foie gras as a starter was ok,...

We enjoyed a delightful dinner on the terrace with a view of the river. The food was excellent especially the veal liver. We enjoyed the local wine list as well

We decided to return here hoping for good weather so we could sit outside beside the Soane - mother nature wasn't obliging so I guess we'll have to wait until next year unless we get an Indian Summer... We ate well and had great service, in fact our waitress was brilliant and always smiling - this does make such a... More

I have been going to this restaurant with business partners for a while now and was always happy with the choice. The location on the river makes for a pleasant view and it is remote enough that there is no noise. The service is prompt, friendly and even features the occasional english speaking waiter. Changes to dishes are readily accepted... More

It's a mixed bag, the menu is short but catered well for all of us and all enjoyed the meal - we we're guests of some great friends and all bar one ate from the Menu Embarcadere which is great value. For me the food didn't quite hit the high notes of what we've had at Le Centre... but a... More

Superb location alongside the Saone, contemporary furniture and dining tableau. SPEED DINING. Was the food tasty? I think so, it's hard to say as the speed of service was almost as fast as a Formula One pit crew. As such there was little time to rest and savour the flavour. The menu was good, the sight, smell, the flavours were... More

We visited for our wedding anniversary on the recommendation of friends at the château we were staying at, and were very impressed. We had a simple main course of liver and green beans which just dissolved in our mouths. Never have I had liver cooked like that - unfortunately! The starter and dessert were equally fabulous and the aperitif on... More
