Michelin®-starred restaurant near Dijon and Beaune

Le 1131

Le 1131

At La Bussière-sur-Ouche, a small village in Côte d’Or near Dijon and Beaune, discover a Michelin®-starred restaurant that will surprise you as much by its unique setting as by its conception of high-level gastronomy.

Le 1131 welcomes you in fact within an authentic 12th century abbey, whose foundation date inspired the restaurant’s identity.

Beneath the former cloister of the Abbaye de la Bussière, the restaurant room breathes and flourishes under the authentic ogival vaulted arches, amongst columns, luminous high-arched windows, arcades, balustrades and sculpted capitals. With its imprint of spirituality, this exceptional decor accompanies each moment you spend here.

At the centre of the room, beneath sparkling chandeliers, sofa-style seating invites you to an intimate dinner while the custom-built wine cabinet suggests high-class pairings of food and wine.


Spirit of our cuisine

Chef Guillaume Royer, 'Meilleur Ouvrier de France' 2015, invites you to taste seasonal cuisine revisiting Burgundian terroir and of which it maintains the fundamental principles: richness and taste.

In fact, the region constantly inspires the Chef, whether on local market stalls or with rigorously selected suppliers. Dishes are thus defined by rich discoveries at such meetings.

Local produce, through its qualities as much of taste as visual appearance, inspires the creation of each dish.

The menus evolve constantly, favouring one product or another: from home-grown Jerusalem artichoke to seaside spider crab, via plump young Bresse pigeon, each seasonal dish is enhanced through cleverly thought out compositions.

All this is accompanied by a glass of wine carefully chosen to go perfectly with your menu.


Portrait of the Chef

Since February 2016, it is head chef Guillaume Royer, recipient of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France award n 2015, who orchestrates the Abbaye's 2 restaurants.

Guillaume, a Burgundian, arrives with a vast experience in renowned Relais & Châteaux and Michelin-starred establishments in Burgundy, France and Switzerland:  Hostellerie du Pas de l’Ours at Crans-Montana, Lameloise in Chagny, Chèvre d’Or at Eze-Village, Auberge Clos des Cîmes at Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid, Hôtel La Villa restaurant l’Alivu at Calvi and since Octobre 2009 Hôtel du Castellet Restaurant Christophe Bacquié at Castellet.  

Delighted to be back in his native region, Guillaume seeks out the very best local produce to create a cuisine that is at once refined, bursting with flavour, authentic - and generous, like the man he is.

The team

By Guillaume's side in the kithen is Olivier Sanchez, Chef pastry-maker since 2008. In unison with the main dishes, the desserts favour seasonal produce, presented through creations as aesthetic as they are gastronomic.

In the restaurant, the team offers a warm welcome and a service that is second to none, combining professionalism, attentiveness and discretion with a relaxed, convivial manner and a genuine desire to please.

In Burgundy, vine and wine are an integral part of the identity of the region. Sommelier Freddy Jaugey, our specialist wine waiter, delivers a most telling image of this. The cellar of the Abbaye de la Bussière contains hundreds of references gleaned from the vineyards of Burgundy but also throughout France and internationally. Prestigious domains or discreet wine houses are to be found on the wine list, a selection that the Sommelier is pleased to share with his guests for perfect pairing of food and wine.
