No other restaurant in France boasts as intense an association with Napoleon Bonaparte, but that’s less important to diners than the fact that the restaurant is the area’s finest. In 1815, Napoleon spent the night here at the beginning of a 100-day reign that ended with his defeat by Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. You’ll find enough references to the history of France, from the Revolution to around 1820, to keep even a student of French history busy. The restaurant seats only about 20, and, after its former owner retired, transformed itself from a gastronomic restaurant to one offering more affordable dishes at lunchtime only. It also has become a place of training for aspiring chefs who have learning difficulties and certain disabilities.
