What more can you expect from a mid range price restaurant? Great food, great wine and good service in a warm and cozy atmosphere! The 25€ menu was worth the travel. No fancy dishes for sure, but plain good food.

I'm so glad I stumbled over Le Grain de Sel when was strolling around, looking for a place to eat my lunch. I was immediately attracted by the look of the restaurant and the menu. I must say that everything was better than I expected. The food was delicious and the staff went out of their way to satisfy me,... More

We spent a long weekend in the department of Jura. The name of the restaurant sounded like a promise and we gave it a try. After a hearty welcome, we were already served a greeting from the chef. The menu is varied and every dish was prepared with attention and high standard. The wine (Trousseau, a marvel from the region)... More

While the service is OK, the "cuisine" is let's say average, not more. The choice is limited with 2 different menus, 24 and 36€ and a very light carte. My filet de boeuf and wine sauce was not the best I have had, the beef was nervous and the wine sauce, .... bof, bof, bof. So, not recommended

We had the Menu at 24€ which was acceptable but not inspired. But the decor was old-fashioned and the atmosphere was cold and not very welcoming. We were the only people in the restaurant and it was a public holiday in May which may have accounted for the lack of customers. But the experience did not make us want to... More

We asked the restaurant to lay on a special Jura meal for a group of English which they did. The food was very good and the service attentive. People still talk about the gambas in a local sauce. We had the room to ourselves which was good. The other diners were put at tables in the other room. The restaurant... More

My colleague and I were working as geologists in the area and stumbled across this wonderful little place. We had the basic fixed price menu. Each dish was balanced, flavourful and a revelation. The service was friendly and helpful. A real gem
