Celebrating 40 years in 2020

2020 has been a lot of things, and celebratory does not spring to mind as being one of them. And yet. In the midst of the chaos, a little French restaurant in Burdickville, Michigan, lived to see its 40th year in business. Our menu offers everything you’d expect from a country French bistro: escargot, rillettes, paté, onion soup, cassoulet, beef burgundy, duck confit. Tarte tatin and profiteroles to finish. Cheese and good bread. We offer simple food prepared well, using timeless techniques and the best ingredients. We have a long, meandering, French-heavy wine list, with lots of great value finds from around the world. 

Located about 30 minutes from Traverse City and 12 minutes from Glen Arbor, on the southeast side of Glen Lake. Contact us or Get Directions.

We hope you’ll visit soon!


If you are in good health, we welcome you to dine-in and enjoy great service at our restaurant, indoors and out! The dining room has been reconfigured to space six feet apart and will not exceed 50% occupancy. Reservations are recommenced, walk-ins welcome.


Offering curbside carryout service! Please call ahead to order. Check out the  MENU posted here for this week’s appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, desserts and wine!
