This was my favourite restaurant in Beaune. I returned each year. This time I experienced such service with attitude - from booking as it was indicated it was very busy and they would see if they could fit me in depending upon time... Well all night 3 tables were full - what is this about - not to mention his... More

A friend and I went to Le Benaton for lunch because she enjoys trying the lunch menu at Michelen star restaurants in order to determine if it is worth going a second time for dinner. Also the price is usually much for affordable. Le Benation was an excellent experience, and we were able to book a table online in advance.... More

Le Benaton quite simply provides a superb dining experience! Every dish, from the amuse-bouche to the entree, main course, and dessert, was spectacular, prepared with artistry, and designed to maximize the taste. Outstanding wine selections. Truly outstanding!

We've dined here several times over the years, though probably not in five years. Hard for a restaurant to live up to high expectations accompanied by memories which may not be realistic. Le Benaton met or exceeded them in every way: the understated elegance of the dining room and the excellent service were prequels to the main event: THE FOOD!... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant before reading that it had a Michelin star, so we weren't sure what to expect. As it turned out, the food was outstanding and the wine list very good, however, the service was not what we would expect of a Michelin starred restaurant. Whilst it was okay, it was not friendly and it... More

The place is a beautiful small place, with high quality food. Clearly they have earned their star ratings. We had high expectations, and they were met. The menu was a bit limited, and the portions on the small side, but that was as expected. Several of the dishes were very innovative. Not your classic french food... most items have a... More

Twenty eight seats inside. That's it. If you wish to make a reservation, do it as soon as you can. The venue is cozy and understated. The service is friendly and professional. The food is expertly prepared with imagination and great skill. Presentation is as if you are being served eatable works of art. The costs for the prix fixe... More

We had the '€60 menu saveur'; 4 courses and an amuse. The food was just excellent; fois gras de canard made like a 'pomme d'amour', deconstructed pigeon and desert with mascarpone merengue and strawberries. The accompanying wines (we asked the sommelier to choose) were exceptionel as well, e.g. a Meursault Premier cru and a Gewurztraminer Grand Cru (mind you; they... More

We took two friends for lunch as a thank you for hosting us for several days. The food was delicious, well balanced, beautifully presented and in quantities that allowed us to manage all the courses - just! The service was impeccable, the ambiance relaxed. We all went for the E78 menu which offered really interesting combinations of tastes and textures.... More

Excellent quality restaurant .We went for the 60 euro set menu . The food was imaginative and excellent. Service was charming and unobtrusive . They have very good wines around 45-65 euros a bottle but you can spend a lot more . The garden was quiet and our friends brought their dog . The chef came around at the end... More
