Dinner at the Hostellerie des Clos in Chablis (Chef: Michel Vignaud), France

On the preparation tour of the Bourgogne Tour by ombiasy WineTours (2015) we stayed at the Hostellerie des Clos in Chablis for one night and had dinner there. Our assessment: Excellent, at 1 Star Michelin level. The Hostellerie des Clos lost its Michelin star a couple of years ago.

Clive Coates (My Favorite Burgundies, 2013): For those travelling in the region: The Hostellerie des Clos has always been the place to stay. One Michelin star food and simple but perfectly adequate and modestly priced bedrooms. I dined there twice on my recent visit. The food was even finer than I have found it to be in the past. Bravo to Mr. Vignaud and his team.

Trip Adviser: Return the Star - Michel Vignaud used to have one Michelin star when he ran the restaurant a few years back. He then turned over the restaurant to become manager of the hotel, and the restaurant lost its star. Michel Vignaud is back in the kitchen, and the dinner showed it. The depth of the wine cellar and fair pricing is staggering. We have been to this hotel and restaurant 12 times. Our tables have ranged in size from three to 12 guests. We always have great meals, superb wines, and great service. Our last visit included 8 folks that had a wide range of menu items. Everyone was totally pleased with everything that was served. At the end of the meal, the chef came out and visited. He remembered us from earlier visits and told us that hotel was going to be renovated soon. We will always make an effort to stay and eat at this place whenever we are near Chablis.


Menu Gourmand for Euro 83


Our judgement: Excellent - 1 star Michelin.

Le Bistro des Grands Crus

Just next to the Hostelleries des Clos is Le Bistro des Grands Crus, its little sister.

Trip advisor: Very friendly owner and staff. Food unfussy but good. Good value for money. This restaurant is attached to the Hostellerie Le Clos, so bill can be added to your hotel bill. It is a nice alternative to the more sumptuous restaurant in the hotel.
