Fodor's Review

This convivial little restaurant in the center of Épernay serves authentic regional dishes with a refined twist at reasonable prices. Chef Bernard Ocio executes a perfect marriage of flavors by highlighting the local wines; classics include homemade foie gras cooked in ratafia de Champagne, rump steak served with a Pinot Noir sauce, salmon accompanied by a Champagne sauce, and the quintessential potée à la champenoise. There are also more rustic choices for the daring, such as snails in parsley butter and tête de veau. The desserts hold no surprises, so expect to see old favorites like pear poached in red wine and crème brûlée. Reservations are essential on weekends.
