Restaurant with 1 Michelin star, so you could expect very good service. Not really. Junior servants not very knowledgable and making mistakes. The food was good though. Nice menu at reasonable price. But still the total experience does not cover a 1 star Michelin. Will not come back here

Unlike the semi rustic restaurants that make up most of Beaune (and by that I mean very straight forward, simple, wonderful food restaurants), Le Benaton is on another level. When we arrived, I was wary, as the setting, decor, amenities, all seemed out of the ordinary. This is a very well thought out and polished restaurant, which, if it is... More

A great meal from start to finish. Spectacular in presentation. the Amuse-bouches were so tasty, not just beautiful... Very professional service and smiling. Japanese wine steward and chef and they have immense pride in their work!

Since it was a Monday Night in Beaune, the choice of restaurants in Beaune was quite limited. However, you online really need one. Le Benaton provided a very innovative cuisine with wines to match. Warmly recommend!

I went to this restaurant on a Friday night in early February. Only one other table was occupied. I have no idea why it was so empty because the meal I was served may have been one of the best I have ever had. The pate starter was intense but the pigeon main was absolutely ridiculous. Maybe the best dish... More

We stopped over in Beaune and were able to book a table for four at this rather small restaurant. We had read up on the place and found some of the service comments surprising. Having heard about the food we wanted to give it a try regardless. Sugimura san confirmed the reservation himself, and we surely didn't have any problems... More

This was my favourite restaurant in Beaune. I returned each year. This time I experienced such service with attitude - from booking as it was indicated it was very busy and they would see if they could fit me in depending upon time... Well all night 3 tables were full - what is this about - not to mention his... More

A friend and I went to Le Benaton for lunch because she enjoys trying the lunch menu at Michelen star restaurants in order to determine if it is worth going a second time for dinner. Also the price is usually much for affordable. Le Benation was an excellent experience, and we were able to book a table online in advance.... More

Le Benaton quite simply provides a superb dining experience! Every dish, from the amuse-bouche to the entree, main course, and dessert, was spectacular, prepared with artistry, and designed to maximize the taste. Outstanding wine selections. Truly outstanding!
