Spotted this on trip advisor as we were heading home from the alps. The owner/couple were as inviting as mentioned by others. The food was outstanding, fresh, cold, crisp salad and delicious casseroles. Delightful cheeses & desserts. Well worth a visit but due to the love of their business the service is not very quick. Would very much recommend.

Stopped just south of Macon, looking for somewhere for lunch and stumbled upon this place.

Exactly what we were looking for. Lovely Menu du Jour, great food, excellent service, great prices!

Would certainly recommend!

Simple place with great food. Very friendly couple running the restaurant, Jean-Marie speaks excellent English, which is not usual in the area. Great and very warm service, generous portions. Every dish made from local products, and the quality of food just wonderful. Excellent value for money, highly recommended.

What a find this is. Such a warm welcome and service from husband and wife working well as a team. They clearly love their work and everyone in the restaurant received excellent attention. Although the menu looks relatively simple, the range of dishes, all seemingly sourced locally, was magnificent for a leisurely lunch.

We mixed and matched from the different set menus, with discoveries at every stage. My previous poor experience from elsewhere with andouillettes was blown away, such a lovely gratin dish with them and potatoes. Poached eggs in a wine, one red and one white, was a real eye opener. The red was not my taste, but the white was a definite winner.

But that is the joy for us of holidays and experimenting with meals.

The host then made a phone call to one of his vigneron friends who was prepared to see us on a public holiday afternoon. This was an absolute delight to see the villages of Beaujolais laid out before you from the top of Saint Amour-Bellevue. We tasted and bought several bottles of local AOC wines to complete a memorable lunch.

Definitely returning when we next visit Burgundy, even if we have to travel some distance.

Many thanks for food, wine and excellent hospitality.
