A brasserie is a restaurant which previously manufactured a homemade beer. Flo is a French chain of brasseries, that are now cafes serving food of classic French cuisine. At noon there is a 20 euro menu and a 3-course evening menu for 30 euros per person. There is an upstairs room with large screen in case you want to see a football game. The restaurant has a terrace opening onto the covered market square of Dijon. There are roast dishes, snacks, soups, sauces, wine and there is a good selection of drinks, with different seasonal beers. It's a chain that once had a bad reputation but renewed its image and now it's nice to go.
This is a new restaurant with colourful, modern décor located in the village of Ahuy, just a 10 minute drive from Dijon. For lunch it was very crowded. We started with a plate of delicious, fresh oysters, accompanied by a white wine, followed by a steak, but the meat was a little tough. It came with home fries. The very nice owner catered to our every need. I did not try the desserts because the meal was enough, but they looked good. The service is fast, there is a professional clientele in the surrounding villages. It is located in an industrial area, but summer was near and you're in the south of France. I would recommend it. It's about 30 euros per person.
Le Bistrot des Halles is a good place to eat in Dijon. I recommend it for lunch when there are more people. At night, in winter at least, the whole neighbourhood is a little empty after 7pm. Le Bistrot des Halles serves classic French food with generous the portions and a friendly staff. There is a terrace in the summer. It's about 30 euros per person. There is a large selection of wines.
Le Dome is a restaurant opposite the covered market of Dijon. It offers two menus, the market menu and the regional menu. The market menu includes a starter and entree with a coffee, or a main and a dessert plus coffee. Depending on the season, you can get meat, fish, or sometimes wild pork in wine sauce, or duck confit with rosemary. It is quite creative. Then the regional menu costs 20 euros for 6 escargot, a Dijon specialty, plus rooster in wine sauce, or beef bourguignon, and for dessert, an ice cream. The menu is a bit more expensive, but the dishes are very well presented. There is also duck, lamb with cream, Rossini sirloin steak with foie gras on top, very delicious. They cost between 15 and 20 euros, plus 10 euros for starters.
An Italian restaurant in the center of Dijon, La Casa di Lola is located in front of the town's indoor market. For supper, it offers a fixed menu that includes a first and second course, plus a dessert, for 16 euros. For the first course, you choose between an Italian salad or wok chicken, and for the second, between a pizza from the regular menu, and carbonara or pesto pasta, and for dessert the Panacotta was very good or a thick yogourt-like white cheese. You eat well and the products are fresh. I liked its décor. Dijon's covered market is in front, and there are several restaurants around, which makes the place come alive at night. A la carte is a bit more expensive, 25-30 euros per person for a full dinner.
The Ruelle means the alley and it is a nice restaurant at the end of a small alley behind the market of Dijon. It is a colorful place, where you can spend hours reading a book and enjoying music. The owners are the same people ve opened La Ruelle Autrement, 10 minutes from Dijon, in the village of Ahuy. Market Kitchen is simple, worthy of the city's gastronomic reputation. You are served very quickly, and the menu changes depending on the time of year and season. It is a place that I would recommend. You can eat around noon for less than 20 Euros, and a good place to go with some friends.
