We had dinner with 6 people in this place in October 2016. You must reserve a table early, because the restaurant is full permanently. This place is like small brasserie at first sight - very simple furniture, long wooden tables and seats, short menu in blackboard on the wall. But wine list is nice and quality of food is excellent!... More

We had one night in Beaune and as we come here every year we have a short list of places we want to have dinner. Caves Madeleine is one of them. This place is one of the better restaurants in Beaune and very affordable. The menu is written on the wall and is prepared with whatever goes at that time... More

Caves Madeleine is a wonderful place and I am happy every time I have the chance to delight myself with this gem. I value quality, tasty, unaltered local, respectful ressource. This tiny restaurant understands how exquisite and simple can come together. Few can understand that simple also has a value, a great one, if simple meets passion and honesty. I... More

This place was recommended by our B&B hostess as her favorite place to eat. We were very happy we had her reserve us a table as the place is small and there are only a handful of individual tables and 1 community table. We got an individual table this night. We each chose an entree (appetizer) I got a warm... More

We travelled in France for 17 days and to be honest, never had a bad meal. I chose restaurants using Tripadvisor, and was not disappointed. Caves Madeleine was the possible exception. I can't fault the food, it was fine, although not particularly distinctive. We had duck and a veal shank and both were simply prepared in a flavorful broth. I... More

I can't say enough about the astounding quality of the food, the sincerity of the staff and chef, and the overall delight of eating at Caves Madeleine. I have been there for a romantic meal with my husband, a family meal with my children, and a meal with friends - it has been different and profoundly pleasurable each time.

When we got there the place was buzzing and we were welcomed like old friends. The staff explained he menu and when I asked about wines recommended our friends wine to go with our... More

Agree with other reviewers that reservations seem the way to go. They have 4 starters and 4 mains for dinner. The first averaged 13€ and the mains were 25€. That was a bit higher than we experienced elsewhere in town and more than our budget - so we just had starters and wine. The taste was incredible and if I... More
