Le Bistrot de Port Lesney
On the Place de Port-Lesney, just 500 metres from the main building , Le Bistrot boasts red shutters, a terrace shaded by a remarkable century-old tulip tree and a long awning, above which a Virginia creeper climbs gracefully.
A casual feel
In the stunning village of Port-Lesney, bordering the river La Loue, Le Bistrot welcomes diners to a relaxed, welcoming and indulgent setting.
On the terrace, the tables are laid with cheerful red and white checked tablecloths, a large slate shows off the menu and the daily specials, which are beautifully handwritten. Inside, an old English apothecary’s cabinet has been completely renovated and now serves as a sideboard. On the bookshelves, unusual ornaments are displayed alongside travel souvenirs. Of course, there’s a wood and marble bar, behind which bottles are carefully lined up. Whatever the season, a meal at Le Bistrot de Port-Lesney in the Jura region is always a good idea.
We love: as night falls under the awning, fairy lights create a fun and welcoming feel.
Simply reading the à la carte menu at Le Bistrot de Port-Lesney is enough to stimulate the senses. Here, pride of place is given to generous and indulgent cuisine, to dishes made for sharing, to traditional recipes with a contemporary touch.
Every day, the chef works with fresh, seasonal and local products with short food supply chains to offer you authentic flavours and unadulterated taste. Try pork ribs with morel mushrooms from the nearby woods, Val d’Amour-style crushed potatoes, fresh frogs, homemade terrine, irresistible fried fish, fruity Comté cheese, fresh fruit tarts and more.
Le Bistrot’s delicious secret
“Our take on the Paris-Brest”: a treat for two!
Bib Gourmand in the Michelin® Guide: on the banks of the river La Loue, a spacious bistro full of antique knick-knacks, a wonderful terrace and... an ode to the terroir: Comté, river trout, etc. Naturally, a checked tablecloth is the backdrop for every generous and hearty dish!
