This is our favorite of all the places we ate during our month in France. It’s a local favorite, near the SNCF railroad station. It is small and in demand, so call to reserve. They have menus at €21 and €28, each with five choices...More

My husband and I had the €21 3 course meal with a quart of red wine @ €13. The service was great and the food to match we couldn't fault anything. We are travelling France and this is the best meal we've had so far....More

We were directed to the Bellifontain by the receptionist at our hotel, which was just around the corner opposite the station. We were made very welcome although the restaurant was quite full, the interior was simple but charming. There appear to be only two 'front...More

This restaurant close to the Central Station is a surprise. Interior is nice but simple, and they offer two different 3 courses menus of € 19 and € 27. Not really a place where you expect something special.... So different here, absolutely quality food, simply...More

The TA reviews have it right. This is a fantastic restaurant, our best meal in 7 nights in France. We enjoyed the 3 course menu of starter, plat and dessert. I had a salad with roasted cheese, white fish seasoned with ginger, and an apple/rhubarb...More
