La bonne franquette

In a bucolic setting, far from the pressure of the cities and yet barely half an hour from Paris and 10 minutes from our B&B, the village of Janvry has retained its old-world charm and mystery.

Languishing along the still waters of its moat in summer, shivering around its frost-crystallized fountain in winter, Janvry doesn't give itself away, it reveals itself..

Just as you discover La Bonne Franquette in Janvry, Le Restaurant..

The first thing you notice is the charm of this former coaching inn. From the moment you enter, you'll find a pleasant place where rustic decor and refinement, subtly balanced, are skillfully combined...

The welcome is warm and friendly, but the owner's anti-bienéance is both amusing and good-natured, and he manages to mix politeness and friendliness in a surprising way.
There's no choice of menu: just one formula. That's easy.
The hardest part is choosing between the dishes on offer, but the waiters' comprehensive explanations ensure that you won't have any regrets.
The raspberry wine for the aperitif is to die for, as is the rest of the meal.
Service is fast and efficient.

you're welcomed not as a customer, but as a friend.

An expensive restaurant, but one you'll want to return to

The gourmet workshop

L'Atelier Gourmand is located in Saint-Jean de Beauregard, a charming little village 3km from our guesthouse, in the former home of the Ferme de Villeziers. You can relax by the fireplace, enjoying a glass of champagne or coffee in one of the lounges provided for your well-being. The restaurant menu includes lobster with citrus, asparagus, rosemary and hazelnut vinaigrette; venison pâté en croûte with foie gras, cranberries, baby greens and onion jam; Perigord duck breast with a garnish of autumn vegetables; and fillet of royal peach sea bream with lemon juice and beef braise served with a fine celery purée. For dessert, choose the fine apple tart with its quenelle of Armagnac ice cream and prunes, or the rice pudding served with a pear from Arlette's orchard and salted butter caramel sauce. Delicious!

"It's a lovely address in Essonne that I know from my regular business lunches, and it's well worth the trip. I wanted to show it to my wife and daughters, and they were pleasantly surprised. It's a cosy setting, with the added bonus of being able to have an aperitif in the lounge and then sit down to dinner, which is quite unusual. The menu is concise, a testament to the restaurant's "au fil de l'eau" approach to cooking, with seasonal produce and impeccable presentation and cooking. The quality/price ratio is more than fair, and the service is discreet yet attentive. The wines on offer are sufficiently varied for moderate prices.
In short, it's hard to find a false note
