Gastronomic restaurant at
La Bussière-sur-Ouche, in Burgundy
as a setting
Le 1131 is Guide Michelin starred since 2007.
Get ready to live a unique experience: a gastronomic adventure in a veritable 12th century Cistercian abbey right in the heart of Burgundy. Le 1131 restaurant welcomes you amidst ogival vaulted arches, arcades and columns, all illuminated by dancing rays of sunlight through high stained-glass windows. You are immediately gripped by the understated natural beauty of this place.
So here you are, comfortably installed around an impeccably dressed table. You can choose to be placed around wide central sofa-style seating or more intimately on the upper gallery. At lunchtime, natural light is soft and when evening comes, scintillating lighting gives the room a new sparkle. All around you, sculpted pillars, period embroideries and engravings offer a picturesque decoration that constantly recalls the long history of this location. The gastronomic restaurant Le 1131 is synonymous with magic.
of our Chef
A local boy, Guillaume Royer is a passionate lover of his Burgundian terroir, knowing its villages and landscapes, markets and producers. From his wanderings and encounters, he brings back tastes and flavours through products of great quality.
In the restaurant Le 1131, fish and game, as also fruits and vegetables, are seasonal. They are authentic. Woodland mushrooms like morels, chanterelles, cèpes and bolets are the stars of the autumn; pumpkins, Jerusalem artichokes and cabbage warm up winter with roebuck and plump pigeon: organic trout from the Yonne welcome the arrival of spring together with fresh green shoots. Orchards and gardens in summer offer up their fruits brimming with sunshine. Then there is honey, coming directly from the Abbaye’s own beehives.
Our Chef applies all the talent of a Meilleur Ouvrier de France and his creativity to honour these regional products and to pay homage to the men and women who have fashioned them.
In this way, his cuisine is in their image, generous and full of taste. Perfectly arranged dishes compete in finesse and flavour.
