Has anyone dined at Georges Blanc, the 3-star restaurant in Vonnas ~60 km from Lyon? We're considering this for a special dinner during our trip in Sept. and would appreciate any feedback.

    He owns the hotel, and offers a package deal for under 700 euros for two. We love the Homard and Bresse dishes. Our last visit was about four hours long; thank God the hotel was close by.

      :) My visits have always been 4 1/2-5 hours long. Just one incredible taste after another. The package deal sounds like an excellent bargain.

        Hi Oakglen,

        I wasn`t able to find the offer for 700 euros at the Bras website. Was it including drinks with your dinner? Jørn

          Try the Blanc website, probably will work better.

            Also, please note that some of the most expensive dishes may not be included on the package menu. I don't know how flexible they would be re supplements etc. Worth a try.

          Yes, I have, several times over the years. Most magnificent meals I've had in my life (and I travel, and eat, all of the world). Perfect for a special meal. Less than 2 hours on the TGV from Paris to Macon and then a short taxi ride to Vonnas. Also the Inn is wonderful and Vonnas is an official "flower village."

          Can I tell you more?
