If you want fine French cuisine, in historic, surroundings this is the restaurant for you. Fine quality food, a vast wine menu, very romantic enjoyable evening for us, whilst a young family was in the restaurant I would suggest this is more suited to couples eating out. I had a salmon starter, followed by steak and a red fruit, almond... More

We were treated very nicely, but the food was quite mediocre. We had hoped for something a bit higher class given the history of the building, but the food didn't match the history.

I had already had dinner at La Croix d'Or and was looking forward to another meal there. Unfortunately the lunch we had there was terrible. Tasteless dishes, everything seemed to have been frozen and just out of the microwave. There are many other places in Provins, this one is surely one to be forgotten if you want to enjoy a... More

Ultra slow service, too bad because the restaurant has a nice history. It's a long way from Paris so you're already tired. Food is overrated.

As others have written here, the Hostellerie de la Croix d'Or is an ancient monument having been in business in one form or another for centuries. The food and service, however, are completely up to date. While not a temple of haute cuisine, they produce a solid, tasty and well-prepared meal served with efficiency and friendliness. Well worth a stop... More

To have lunch at the oldest hostellerie of France! That is quite an experience. Although it was really hot and the terrace of Hostellerie de la Croix d'Or was appealling, we couldn't resist to sit inside this 13th century house. Everything in this place breaths history. The rooms are nicely decorated with respect for the history of the building. At... More

This restaurant provides a gastronomic experience in the traditional style. You have to be prepared to linger over your meal and to savour the various courses. I went on a Sunday and the restaurant was filled with French families and friends. There are various combinations in menus. I recommend the specials of the day. On this occasion I started with...

Excellent traditional French cuisine in a superbly preserved 13th century house. The meals were correctly sized and cooked to perfection. Very good service. A bit pricey but realistic too as products are good too. Would love to back there a 3rd time.

Almost tempted not to share as it was so good and do not want everyone to know. But I did tell the restaurant that I was going to share my wonderful experience here.

Although the place smelt old and stuffy upon entering the XIII th century building, we were quickly overwhelmed by the incredible et food and excellent service. We ordered the 19.95 euros pric fixe meal and it was well worth it Highly recommend
