Burgundy Restaurant Review – L’Auberge du Côteau

Franck recently took our recent guests Micca and Alan on a guided walk, and they invited him for a wonderful lunch at “L’Auberge du Côteau” in the nearby village of Villers-Fontaine.

This auberge used to be great, and then it changed hands and went downhill for a while. About a year ago some new people bought it, and it is better now than it’s ever been. It’s a great spot for a simple, delicious meal in a rustic setting.

Lunch menus rotate around 12-15 Euros for a “prix fixe” and you will find many Burgundian specialties such as jambon persillé, coq au vin, and the ubiquitous escargots.

I don’t have a photo unfortunately, but the restaurant is the only one in Villers-Fontaine, and is just to your left as you come into the village. There is a nice patio area for the nice weather too.

All in all a great address – highly recommended by Franck!
