We were trying to find a place to eat lunch on a quiet Sunday. Walking down Berbisey at night is very lively...but during the day, it's not the best neighborhood. We entertained ourselves watching the guy who sat and occasionally gave commentary while drinking in...More

If you want to taste excellent "Burgundy Food", this is the place. There is no other choice...so if you like spaghetti or seafood, go somewhere else...The food served is of excellent quality and the sauces a marvel. Don't forget to reserve in advance, because the...More

we've followed recommendation of lonely planet and were disappointed. The food was pre-cooked and came straight from microwave oven (we heard ding-ding and our dishes were delivered).

I dream of the Poulet a la Gaston Gerard from La Mere Folle. This restaurant is often crowded, as the other reviewer said, the service is not super attentive, but the food is definitely not "cafeteria level". Of the half a dozen times I've eaten...More

Had I only researched a restaurant on tripadvisor! Unfortunately I relied on the green guide Michelin and lonely planet France who both recommended this restaurant. The food was cafeteria level at best, the service desinterested. Not even to an enemy would I recommend this restaurant....More
