Bistrot des Moines

Charming bistrot in Burgundy
between Beaune and Dijon

An old-style

The Bistrot des Moines

In the very heart of Burgundy, discover the Bistrot des Moines at the Abbaye de la Bussière: a place full of charm, an ode to the terroir of Burgundy and to grandma’s cooking.

Find yourselves in either of the two lovely rooms, one giving onto the park and the lake and the other in the former kitchen of the monks of the Cistercian abbey of La Bussière, for a convivial moment around a very appetising table.

A collection of beautiful copper pans adorns the walls, hand-painted plates and wine bottles alternate on the shelves of the dresser and on a table a bouquet of dried ears of corn recalls the nutritional value of wheat…

A historic décor unique in its genre, as atypical as it is warm and welcoming for a tasty meal. The Bistrot des Moines at La Bussière-sur-Ouche cultivates the legendary art of conviviality and sharing based on generous cuisine amongst friends, in couples or as a family.

The cuisine

Our Chef François Pelletier is inspired by the culinary repertoire of our grandmothers to prepare dishes celebrating the authenticity and simplicity of family moments.

Each day, he brings back from market produce cultivated by local, regional producers he has always known.

In his basket, organic hens’ eggs, belly pork, seasonal fruits and vegetables, some Franche-Comté cheeses, freshly-caught fish…

François gets to work with his team in his kitchen, conjuring up for you fricassées and sautés, dishes that will simmer for long hours in pots and pans… and not forgetting his fresh fruit tarts.

The terrace

From the first sunny days, benefit from the early sunshine on the terrace of the Bistrot des Moines.

Around you, beautiful lawns with grass that is still fresh, flowers in their garden boxes, impeccably pruned bushes of boxwood; a little farther off, the park and its centuries-old trees invite you to stroll.

Let time go by, listen to nature around you, savour this bucolic luncheon experience.

The Sunday

The Abbaye de la Bussière looks forward to seeing you for its famous Sunday brunch.

In a great family atmosphere, share this moment of good food in the superb décor of the medieval abbey.

You will enjoy hot and cold dishes, both sweet and savoury, in a convivial and relaxed mood. Once summer arrives, you can benefit from the terrace and the park around it.

Our Chef François Pelletier prepares for you no less than twenty starters, a superb and ultra-rich dessert buffet, delicious dishes based on fresh seasonal produce coming straight from local producers.

It is a real moment of sharing to be enjoyed as a couple or amongst friends or family.
