We had dinner in a restaurant, following a recommendation. The food was nice, but for a restaurant of this level, we had expected to find something special. So we left a bit disappointed, although there was nothing to complain about.

Arriving as first diners we were at first worried there would be little atmosphere, but the place soon filled up. We tried the €26 three course menu option. A chèvre chaud salad, beef onglet, crime brûlée. All excellent and served promptly despite there being two large groups amongst the diners. The garden patio was too risky with bad weather still...

I must say that this restaurant is not the easiest to spot. An entrance corridor goes along the wine shop until a small door can be seen and then you know that you arrived on the right place. We went, without hesitation, for the complete menu. Needless to say that the food was excellent, it tasted fresh, detailed and it... More

The entrance is a narrow corridor next to a wine store by the same name. The interior walls are covered with wood, actually packing cases of the wine, different if not interesting décor. The menu is not too large but the chef recommends wines to go with each preparation. The portions are good and meal itself is interesting. The service,... More

Was out on business and staying over in Besancon town centre. Having travelled a few times and knowing this is a town for excellent food I wanted to try something new. Looked out for recommendations and I was given three by my hotel reception. Barthod being one. Feeling adventurous I wanted to get some local input to narrow my three... More

A limited menu. Difficult to understand with "suggestions du chef" being the main choice. You are almost forced into an expensive plate with wine. The food was not bad, but at that price it was not good either. I asked the waitress the meaning of "fromage du tête". She did not know. By the way it is not cheese but... More

In France, I always win when I go to a restaurant with no plans and no expectations. On many of these occasions, I discover that my expectations are not only overcome by quality, but blown away by extremely high quality. This was one such place. Matching large portioned entrees with the chef's decidedly accurate choice of wine, the ambiance and... More

We go fairly regularly to Besancon, and always struggle to find good restaurant options, especially as we are vegetarian. This is a good option. Lovely terrace, quality food, some vegetarian options (eg croute aux morilles), good service, excellent creme brule! We'll be back.

Chez Barthod is part of the complex of a wine shop and a gourmet grocery store. The restaurant was packed with locals on the Thursday evening we were there. There were lots of local specialties on the menu, the food was good (not exceptional, but quite good); the wine choices were excellent; and the service very friendly and very good.... More
