Beaune is the ultimate city to visit if you’re into food and wine…the drawback? It ain’t cheap. These are the best restaurants you can dine at where the bill won’t make you go into shock.

BEST RESTAURANT DEALS IN BEAUNE

L’Auberge de Vieux Vigneron €20

L'Auberge de Vieux Vigneron is a cheaper restaurant near Beaune France

L’auberge de Vieux Vigneron is a restaurant close to Beaune that offers a great value

Our wine maker friend Vincent Jouard recommended this place. It’s a bit outside Beaune (10 minutes), but right in the middle of Chassagne-Montrachet. Their €20 lunch menu:

  • Entree – The Vieux Vigneron Salad: Poached egg & lardons with a few greens (delish) or Terrine of quail in Armagnac
  • Plat – Filet Mignon of Porc or Burgundian Omelette
  • Dessert – White Country Cream Cheese or Vanilla Bourbon Creme Brulee

This was an incredible deal for the calories. Our tummies, tongues, and pockets were happy. Wine started at €5 by the glass.

Le Bistro des Cocottes €20-25

The Oeuf En Meurette at Bistro des cocottes is just 5 euro

While this restaurant does not have a lunch menu, their choices are super affordable and the food was delicious both times we went. You can easily build your own menu.

  • Entree – Oeuf en Meurette (€5) or Escargot (€6.5)
  • Plat – Lamb Ribs with French Fries & Vegetables (€16)

The restaurant also has a small outside area and incredibly priced wines starting at €5. You really can’t beat it!

L’Ardoise €20

L'ardoise is an affordable restaurant in Beaune France

L’ardoise is one of the best value restaurants in Beaune France

They have an even better deal than this with their €16 menu, but you’ll want to spend the extra 4. For €16, you get an entree & plat or plat & dessert. We ended up going a la carte and for  €25 our choices were:

  • Entree - Cauliflower soup with hazelnut oil or Egg cooked at 63° (both delicious)
  • Plat – Grilled duck breast, caramelized mashed celery, honey juice or Math burger (180g Charolais steak, cheddar, bacon), salad, wedges

The chefs here definitely have the technique. The ambience is a bit more relaxed and I think you’ll enjoy the place as much as I did.

Caves Madelein €23

Caves Madelein provides excellent food for the money in Beaune

Caves Madelein is one of the best value restaurants in Beaune France

This has been a favorite of our team for at least 4 years. The food is solid (the Quenelles de Volaille are incredible), and the wine list is superb (even with Laurent gone). The €23 lunch menu is the way to get the best deal:

  • Appetizer – Radishes with butter (not really an appetizer – but a French classic)
  • Entree – Veloute of Cauliflower
  • Plat – Duck Confit (it was a lady bird – a Cannette)
  • Dessert – Ile Flotante (Floating island)

This place has never let us down. This is an absolute MUST when you visit Beaune.

A FEW SPLURGES THAT ARE WORTH THE MONEY

Le Benaton €40

Beaune's Le Benaton offers affordable lunches

Le Benaton is a one star Michelin restaurant with a fantastic lunch deal in Beaune

This 1 star Michelin restaurant offers an amazing lunch deal. Their €34 menu:

  • Mise en Bouche - foie gras and lobster mousse
  • Entree - asparagus and shrimp on an asparagus veloutee
  • Plat - confit of duck encrusted in spiced bread with seasonal vegetables and potatoess
  • Dessert – Citrus Napoleon

While this restaurant is not cheap, the quality of food an service will seriously make up for it. They also have bottles of wine at around €30.

Le Carmin €35

Le Carmin is a relatively cheap restaurant in Beaune

Le Carmin is a one star Michelin restaurant in BEaune that offers a great prix fixe menu

Again, €35 ain’t cheap…but when you have a Michelin star, the concept of value changes. Lovely place…definitely not ready for two stars…but a lovely meal at an amazing price. On top of that, this menu is offered for lunch AND dinner Tuesday – Saturday. Talk about a score:

  • Filet of Mackerel in Escabeche
  • Red Label Pork with A Mousseline of Potatoes (yum)
  • Fresh chevre cheese from the Claviere Farm
  • Yuzu dessert

Again, some affordable wine choices and a lovely way to splurge on yourself.
