Buffon: Le Marronier

Phone: 03 80 92 33 65

Reviewed by: Amy from MA, review #2057

When: 2006

Informal restaurant with pretty good food. A good choice for an inexpensive meal.

Directions: On the D905 through Buffon

This is an simple restaurant and hotel with a huge chestnut tree shading the front patio. It's a good choice if you're visiting the Grand Forge or the Abbey de Fontenay. Country-style food, and very reasonable prices. It was too chilly and drizzly to sit outside, so we ate in the yellow-painted dining room.

We both had the 11 euro menu. I started with Bouchee a la Reine, which was yes, chicken a la king in a puff pastry. Larry ordered Museau Vinaigrette, which was slices of mystery meat in a tasty dressing. We both followed with excellent roasted lapin. (If you order the lapin, tell the server if there's a part you prefer--leg or breast) Larry finished with cheese, I managed a dish of berries.

Lunch with a half bottle of wine and coffee was 39 euro.
