This is a favorite of ours to bring friends from the States to try traditional Burgundian food. The owners are wonderful and accommodating to well behaved children. My husband would go here every weekend if he could. My daughter (when she was 7) accidentally spilled...More

Our B&B recommended this place for typical Burgundian food. We tried the soft-boiled eggs in red wine, beef bourguignon and the assorted cheeses for desert. Food was delicious; service was friendly.

This restaurant was open on Easter Sunday when most were shut. We tried the 29 Euro menu and certainly had enough to eat. The dishes came out with regimental precision and looked fine. Perhaps the flavours were too subtle for our palates - there was...More

On the road to the Champagne region, we stopped at Dijon and looked for a restaurant serving freshly cooked local food. On Sunday, that was not an easy task... and we felt quite lucky to discover L'Escargot. After a glass of Champagne (to prepare ourselves...More

This small family restaurant serves up probably the best that Burgundy offers at a very reasonable price. The snails followed by veal kidneys washed down by an outstanding Geverey made this writer very happy indeed. Not my first visit or review over the years of...More

L’Escargot was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel. While our dinner was not unpleasant, it was not outstanding in any way. The escargot was good as was the beef burgundy. However, portions were smallish and the server was haughty. We had better dinners...More

Although the air conditioning wasn't quite cool enough, the food and the service were excellent. We particularly wanted local dishes, and that's what we got (I had a chicken with mustard in a cheese sauce that was superb). The local wine was nice, too.

Don't be turned off by the mixed reviews (many from 2012 complaining about the staff). When we couldn't get a reservation at Le Bouchon du Palais, the hotel reception suggested L'escargot. It turned out to be the best food on our 2 week trip (including...More
