We went here by chance on a wet Sunday in August when there were few restauarants open. Certainly it is not a typical menu, but the combinations of flavours are imaginative and in general successful. As far as we could tell there is a kitchen at the back where dishes are indeed cooked fresh, though final service is behind the... More

In the town of Besancon there are many restaurants. How we came to choose this one and eat at it is beyond me. We must have been under the delusion that all French food is good. Certainly the menu looked interesting and a bit different, the setting promised an alfresco experience and it was convenient to the hotel on our... More
