We stayed overnight at a chateau in a village nearby. The owner recommended this restaurant and made a reservation for us. The restaurant is nicely located on the bank of the Saône. We were friendly welcomed by the staff and were given a table overlooking...More

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.

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...More
