I found this restaurant while researching where to dine in Dijon prior to our trip. We absolutely loved this charming, out-of-the-way restaurant. My husband had the owner select what he should eat (yes, pigeon was a great choice) and they easily accommodated my need to eat gluten free. We also asked them to select our wines and we were not...

This seemingly ''popular'' restaurant in fact serves food that is tasteless and ''réchauffée''. Even the bread was mediocre. Service was amicable up to the moment we expressed our displeasure!

Our 1st encounter with a Lyonnais style Bouchon, small, family owned, and fabulous food. Our first encounter with Kir, not to be confused with Kir Royal. The food was delicious, service attentive and at a reasonable price.

We visited this restaurant on a cold spring evening. This limited sitting outside. We had booked and was pleased we had because by 8pm it was full. It is only a small, intimate family run restaurant. The two waitresses are exceptional - friendly, helpful and attentive. They took time to explain anything we needed to understand - we have very... More

We stopped in Dijon for just a couple of nights and decided to try this local restaurant. The food was delightful and had a local touch for sure. It's a very small seating area which for us makes it far more attractive and cozy. The service attention was fantastic, as our French is not so good they took the time... More

Friendly welcome from owner who is second-generation. She runs the place and I think her father is the chef. Warm atmosphere and interesting paraphernalia create a special experience as soon as you walk in to this diminutive but perfectly positioned restaurant. I had stuffed pig's foot to start which went straight into my top 10 of Dishes I Have Eaten.... More

We order from the lunch special menu. The food was good and the service was friendly. I saw some other dishes around that I would love to try but not much time in Dijon to visit again. The bed of lentils in my wife's chicken was amazing and I finally got a decent crêpe Suzette. Nice wine list heavy on... More

The food is excelent. Service is attentive and quick. Wine is served by the glass. Price is fare and if you choose the menu of the day, you will save money and enjoy the pleasures of the cuisine dijonnais. With few tables do book before.
