My wife daughter and I visited Jean-Paul Jeunet's for a good French meal. We were not disappointed. I have celiac and must eat gluten free. This was no problem for the chef or wait staff--who were the best. They helped us choose our dinners and drinks with great, friendly attitudes and seemed to enjoy it almost as much as we... More

We usually visit Arbois once a year. Too bad that we did not discover Maison Jeunet earlier. But better late than never. Most times we try lunch in a restaurant we visit for the first time. We went on a Monday and were surprised to find the dining room almost full. From amuse bouch to dessert we loved everything and... More

Crossed over into France from Geneva, on back country roads - no destination in mind, no plan ... the R90s was loaded to the maximum with gear and the soon-to-be wife. As twilight came on, and the light rain dried up, we entered Arbois from 'the rear' on rural minor roads. Just needed a good nights sleep. We were extremely... More

After having stayed two weeks in Italy, on the way back we decided to stop in Arbois and visit the restaurant of the Flemish chef, Steven Naessens. The Jura kitchen is one of my personal favourites, so I was looking forward to this. The interior is very well done, modern and 'old' at the same time. Staff is variable, some... More

Since Februar 2016 a new couple has taken over the Hotel and Restaurant from the old owners. We have been going to the Hotel / restaurant for many years. The interior has been redesigned and has a modern look. The reception is excellent and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms have not been changed. The menu contains... More

My wife and I spent 2 days in Arbois during our exploration of the Jura - stayed at the hotel in order to eat here. What a delight it was! There is no doubt that they deserve their Michelin stars. It was so good, that we returned for dinner the next night as well. We had each of the chef's... More

We had dinner at La Maison Jeunet on a Sunday evening during an extended weekend focused on the discovery of the Jura wines. La Maison Jeunet is an institution in Arbois and has been operating for decades. Jean-Paul Jeunet actually recently gave up the lead to a new chef, not unknown in the house though, Steven Naessens. There were 2... More

We had a lovely dinner here.The service is great, it is really like watching a ballet performance. Don't expect a quick dinner here, Lovely dishes, which present local Jura specialities.

Everything was delicious here, the most memorable item for me being the "marcassin" (juvenile wild boar) delicately blended with herbs. The distinctive local "vin jaune" is a treat in such expert hands, as was the Ploussard red "La Chamade" 2008 from Philippe Bornard in the neighboring village of Pupillin. The decor successfully blends rustic and elegant. Good service.

We were a group of 8 friends who visited on a Thusday. The restaurant was not full by far and plenty of staff present. However all through the meal, they seemed to be a bit all over the place and service was not coordinated like one would expect. We all had the same 6 course menu and service was agreeable... More

Description
The Guardian has called it 'the best restaurant in France', and H��tel Jean-Paul Jeunet was voted 'Establishment of the Year 2006' by the prestigious restaurant guide Gault Millau ��� so its safe to say that the 2-Michelin-starred Restaurant Jean-Paul Jeunet in Arbois is a highly desirable dining destination. Tucked away in a far-flung corner of Jura, the restaurant is renowned for Jeunet's light, contemporary cuisine which is filled with flavours from yesteryear. Best known for using traditional ingredients in exceptional ways, Jeunet's signature dishes include foie gras poached in Macvin caramel; buttered snails cooked in liquorice flavoured bouillon; and warm chocolate soup flavoured with pine bark. The rustic dining room ��� decorated with colourful canvases and an open Franche-Comt�� fireplace - exudes an atmosphere of hushed awe, and this divine establishment is guaranteed to impress even the most spoiled gourmands.
