    Love the restaurant, they were short staffed tonight so service was slow. They did the best they could.

    Lovely little Auberge in the heart of Sancerre, a very traditional French town, on a hill, surrounded by vineyards.

    Nice restaurant with small but interesting menu We all enjoyed our food and wine and the lady serving was pleasant and friendly but was obviously very busy as she was serving the entire place on her own

    Excellent food, everything we ate was delicious (we had duck, cheese and panna cotta). The wine list is extensive and the wine we had was very nice, they do half bottles which is great. The service was good. The servers spoke very little french so could be difficult for some travellers through we were fine. The seats were possibly the most uncomfortable seast I have ever sat on in a restaurant - this was really the only negative.

    Great quality food with good service in a typical village/small town market place.

    The food was of high quality and came really quickly. The service was very friendly and efficient. The only initial issue was that the restaurant did not have our reservation so glitch in the online ordering booking. Despite this and being very busy they accommodated us and served us an excellent meal.

    We booked reservations a few hours earlier through TripAdvisor's The Fork, but the hostess didn't have our reservation on file. Since we arrived right as they were opening, they were able to accommodate us and happily found us a wonderful table in a great section. Only one of the servers spoke a little English, but between her limited English and my limited French, we were able to order some wonderful meals and some amazing wines! I can't recommend Auberge Joseph Mellot enough. Wonderful staff, truly exceptional food & wine, and a great atmosphere made for an enchanting evening.

    Booked online for 8pm. On arrival staff said we would have to wait to be served as all the tables had been booked for the same time!! Not even offered a drink. We ordered in French but despite this the staff seemed completely confused because we didn't all eat from the same menu. Food mediocre at best.

About the restaurant

UN SUPPLÉMENT D'ÂME - Dans cette demeure sancerroise typique érigée en 1882 par la famille Mellot règne une ambiance hors du temps. Fidèle à la tradition avec un décor digne d'un musée du vigneron, l'Auberge Joseph Mellot est classée aux Cafés Historiques et Patrimoniaux d’Europe.

VOYAGE DES SENS À SANCERRE - Ici se mêlent l'amour du vin et le respect du terroir, avec une carte qui évolue au fil des saisons : pâté de foie de volaille au Sancerre blanc, blanquette de poisson, gigolette de poulet farci, etc.

UNE CAVE QUI S'IMPOSE - Véritable ambassadeur des vins de Centre Loire, les vignobles Joseph Mellot ne sont plus à présenter. Bonne nouvelle pour les amateurs d'œnologie : l'auberge se transforme en bar à vins pendant la journée… À vos emplettes !
