Fodor's Expert Review Bannière de France

11 rue Franklin-Roosevelt, Laon, Hauts-de-France, 02000, France

In business since 1685, this historic hostelry is five minutes from the cathedral and welcomes visitors with its cozy accommodations and venerable dining room. Lieselotte Lefèvre, the German patronne, speaks fluent English. The restaurant's dining room produces sturdy traditional cuisine (trout, lemon sole, guinea fowl) and good-value prix-fixe menus.
