I've been at this restaurant several times in the past, but lastly they seemed to have changed their Chef ! What a disappointment ! The quality and quantity has so much degraded, that I won't return here again.

I do not normally attempt to rate restaurants because the appreciation food and service is very subjective and by no means a universal measure. However, having spent three nights in Besancon and having either viewed or eaten in several other establishments, I would rate Bistrot la Charrette in a class of its own within my limited sample. The service is... More

Recommended to us by our hotel manager,was certainly worth waiting for it to open at 7pm. Superb setting on the banks river Doube,and beautifully fitted out internally. Service excellent,food very good and great selection of wines,and at the end of the meal a very reasonable bill. Will revisit when next in the Comte region of France.

My favorite restaurant in Besancon, and I tried several. The coq au vin was a little touch of heaven, and the lemon tart quite possibly the best lemon tart I've ever had. The wait staff is of high quality (maybe family run and operated?). I'm a language student, so my French is not good at the moment. Still, the waiter... More

Excellent food and service in a prettily appointed room. Tables outside also. Expensive but worth it.

My partner and I had dinner at this small little restaurant on the edge of the river. My partner loved his veal but my seafood was average, but coming from New Zealand I think our seafood is better. I had the scallops which I found not as fresh as I would like and lacking in flavour. The Chardonay we had... More

Cannot disagree more with reviewer lodewijk l! We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel on our one night stay in the town. All the tables outside were full and the atmosphere was very good. There seemed to be little available for a veggie but the staff could not have been more helpful in adapting the menu to satisfy our... More
