It is very difficult not to feel at home in the recently refurbished surroundings of this beautiful hundred-year- old establishment. The glowing façade is like a scarlet beacon, inviting you to enjoy some fine dining, or simply just a pleasant break.This is a result of the fact that this establishment successfully combines may facets, including that of a village café, a brasserie and a wine bar. The dynamic duo of Michaël Gauduret and David Pouly are what lies behind this success. Michaël Gauduret is a young chef who trained in several prestigious establishments, including Mère Brazier and Château de Bagnols, before becoming the 2018 winner of the ‘Trophée de la Bistronomie’. He creates imaginative, fresh dishes which faithfully use local ingredients, as illustrated by his farm-reared pork, tangy baked Mirabelle plums and fresh hazelnuts with a tarragon jus. David Pouly is a wine expert who learnt the ropes in his native Savoy and who presides over the dining area and a vast wine cellar, the products of which can be enjoyed in the restaurant. There is another good reason to quickly make your way up to the ‘Monts d’Or’ – the prices, like the restaurant, are attractive!
