Service was attentive et very courteous. We felt a little let down by the bread (butter however a delight).Mention has to be made of an excellent... More

Dinner at Restaurant Doucet, which is part of the Hotel de la Poste in Charolles, was a delight despite the garish decoration of the dining room. Ordering à la carte a starter of mushrooms and grated cheese, delicate and delicious, was followed by riz de veau, sweetbreads infused with amaretto. Between courses there were several delightful "amuse bouches", making it... More

What a wonderful restaurant. We have just travelled through Alsace Lorraine area on a Food and Wine tour. We had sampled another Michelin star restaurant and decided to try Frederic Doucet's restaurant whilst travelling in Burgundy. So glad we did. The food was first class. We enjoyed a creative amuse bouche and a delightful tomatoe and mozzarella dish. For entree... More

This is the third time we've visited and it has improved further. The disappointing aspect of our past two visits (the veggie wife was provided with a version of scrambled eggs on both occasions) has been eradicated - the restaurant now has a few vegetarian meals - I can't tell you how unusual this is for Burgundy. The wife and... More

We had lunch at this place about 8 years ago and always intended to return. Now, of course, it has a Michelin star and prices to match, but it didn't disappoint. The style of the dining room is a little garish for my tastes, but the food was utterly superb and the service extremely friendly and very efficient. Plenty of... More

Tuesday 23rd August was a warm evening and the shady courtyard dining area was perfect for my anniversary dinner with my wife. The ambience was relaxed formality if that is possible !

The food was delicious with a constant flow of amusee bouchees. We were difficult customers but they did their best to accommodate our needs and were warm and friendly. We got to walk past the kitchen which felt like a real honour as it has a Michelin star. I have dined at the Chapelle St Martin, another Michelin starred restaurant... More

We visited today and had a lovely meal. We were very well looked after and it is a lovely spot to sit and have lunch. Food was quick and tasted very good, good size portions also. The service was also great.

Frederic is absolutely charming and his restaurant is a definite "not to be missed" if you are in the area. We were taken to a lovely little deck for a pre-dinner drink which was served with some of the best canapés I have ever tasted - delicious little gazpacho and foie gras and mushroom on something very crispy and tasty....
