Family run Hotel with Restaurant owned by M. Gérard and Mme Isabelle Coupat. Hotel De l'Ecu is listed with Logis d'France and Inter-hotel as 3 star. We visited the dining room on a Sunday night in May 2006 (Mother's Day in Australia) and partook of the 18 Euro Menu (now €22). We were joined in the room by 5 or 6 other couples (some with children) and a large table of 6 German gentlemen celebrating the first day of safe cruising on a Burgundy Canal Hire Boat. We monitored the other patrons' enjoyment of their meals. It appeared to match ours.
We had one of the best meals that we have ever had anywhere in France during our dozen or so visits in the last 25 years. With pre-dinner drinks, water and a glass of wine each the bill was 62.5 Euros. Food, Silver Service, Ambience were exceptional:so good that we returned the following night to try more expensive menus.
Favorite Dish: My wife and I ate different 3 course meals on two nights sharing the taste sensations as we went. We enjoyed everything. Service was exceptional. The wine list was better than average but still gave a good range of prices including wines by the glass.
Note: In April 2008, we returned on a road trip - booking in for dinner a month in advance so as not to miss out. Stayed overnight in the hotel and dined as well. Our expectations were met. We enjoyed the meal as we did on the previous visits. Accommodation was good but not exceptional. The standard was to be expected for the 60 euro a night tariff.....but this is a restaurant review and we will go out of our way to eat here again when on the Canal de Bourgogne or driving in this part of France.
