This restaurant serves at a very reasonable price, top cooking. The waitresses were helpful with their suggestions. We visited in sommer and found the terrace the only drawback (unfriendly), but inside the rooms appeared much better

We stayed en route in Dole and booked this restaurant by recommendation. We were certainly not disappointed. The restaurant was supported by local french people, always a good sign, families and couples, all were made most welcome as were we, the only English people there. The menu is not extensive, a good thing in my view, and the food was... More

We had lunch. The setting is charming. However, there was a screaming baby on the terrace. We ate in the salle. The food was well prepared except for the fish which was a bit underdone. Dessert was uninspired. There were regional wines available. Service was friendly. An ability to speak some french was necessary.

Been here with colleagues, I discovered a nice and cosy restaurant. Food was excellent and wine too. Recommended if you're passing by.

Not to be missed! Deserves and even higher ranking! What can one say……the superlatives keep coming yet gain another young couple making a great venue with all the right ingredients. You’ll find it hard to discover a better establishment in this area, our party of four were unanimous that it was one of the best meals we’d had in France... More

We were glad to have booked Sunday lunch in advance - the restaurant was full, and people were turned away. Quite a few families with (well-behaved!) young children, as well as old French gourmets. The restaurant is not quite on the river, but has views of it. Dole itself is a fascinating place (the restaurant is on the road on... More

Looked forward all day to our meal here as we drove through France. Not disappointed. Chose the 3 courses plus dessert and we were struck by how delicately the fish and meat had been cooked. 35€ of delight! Must come in high summer to eat outside but so far we have only visited in spring or autumn when it has... More

I am used to go to this restaurant when I go to Dole because the food, service and locations are excellent! People is kind and very professional. Great restaurant with a very good ratio between price and quality.

As folks who eat out a lot in France during the summer, we would say that it does not get better than this for the price. That said, they are able to do it by a limited menu so check what the current seasonal menu is to be sure it is something you want. Reservations necessary.

I discovered the restaurant by chance (following an advise from my brother) a few months ago. I am looking forward to my next visit to this part of France to visit again. Similar quasi gastronomic meal in a larger city would cost at least 50% to 100% more... Well done, keep up the good work !!
