La Halte de L'Abbaye is nothing special to look at - a rather humble cafe down the road from the Abbey of Cluny. It was recommended to us for lunch by friends who live in the area (and is highly rated on TripAdvisor). It has a very local feel, like hundreds of such places in villages throughout France. The food... More

We recently enjoyed a fine dinner with friends at this gem in Cluny. We each chose one of the 3-course menus on offer and they were tasty and great value for money. The food was fresh and lovingly prepared and served. We had a variety of desserts and cheeses that we shared. They were all good but the blackcurrant tart... More

We have eaten lunch here twice, and plan to go back tomorrow, Friday May 27. Although we appreciate fine gourmet cuisine with lots of little extras, this little cafe has good "extras" too, such as: a warm welcome, a friendly neighborhood vibe, and really good simple cooking like grandma used to make. We have enjoyed every dish so far, including... More

We were here in the past already: We love this friendly little place. The menus are simple and down to earth: classical Charrolais steaks and fries. But they also serve great local specialties prepared with dedication like terrine, snails and "tête de veau". We recommend one of their delicious gravies on the steaks (try "sauce aux morilles"). And as for... More

I've been meaning to write this review for quite some time and have always forgotten. We live about 15 minutes from Cluny and often go there with visitors. We'd passed this restaurant for years and decided to go there with a friend because they advertised beef tartare as a specialty. We each got a "menu" of around 25 euros. Not... More

The Halte de L'Abbaye is the first restaurant you pass on the way from the main parking lot to the Abbaye de Cluny. It is a cozy little place run by a family. The hosts are very dedicated, very attentive and the husband is working like crazy in the kitchen. Every time we stop at the restaurant we are treated... More

As a pilgrim I arrived to Cluny after spending an unforgettable week in Taizé. I was tired and sad and emotional and hungry. Severine served me with very fine food and she also had attention for my sadness and the fact that I couldn't speak French. She spoke fortunatly good English and was willing to do it aswel. She was... More

This is a nice little restaurant. Food is enjoyable. Prices are affordable. People are friendly. We loved it. And don't miss the "tarte aux abricots" for dessert: just fantastic.
