I'll be in Dijon for lunch, dinner, breakfast, and lunch again. Can anyone make recommendations for good reasonably priced places to eat in the town center?
Check out Rue Monge (Place Emile Zola) there are several places there at which we have eaten. Our favorite : [original VT link] enjoy Dijon de pedro
Thanks Pedro. I guess I should have mentioned that, of necessity, we're "shoestring" travellers: 75 euros is a bit steep for us. Is the Germinal open for lunch? When we get to Paris, we are thinking about having our main meal at lunchtime when prices are lower, and eating street food at dinnertime. Is it possible to do this in Dijon as well?
No problem Harriet. Dijon is a university town so there is a range of eating establishments. Stop some students in the street and ask for their recommendations.
My wife and I had been living on our boat down on the canal & had been self catering to save up for the visits to Germinal. There are less expensive options there even at night. We ate at another place on Rue Monge for lunch & had pizza and wine for 30euro for two. Hope you enjoy the visit de pedro
I was in Dijon for two days and ate luch here both days because it was so wonderful. [original VT link]
There is also a reasonably priced crepe restuarant across from Hotel Le Jaquemart that is good for dinner. The hotel is also very central and a good value. The hotel has a variety of room types at different prices.

Hi Kathy, I'm very pleased to see you liked my town :-)
It is a pity we didn't meet, we could have done the owl's trail together!
Harriett, there are too many good restaurants in Dijon to suggest only one.
If you can read French, have a look at the reviews on cityox.

Welcome to Dijon!
Yes I had a wonderful time. I walked the Owl's Trail and rubbed his tummy with my left hand. The restaurant I mention is just east of the Owl. France won a quarter final game in the World Cup when we were there and it was almost impossible to sleep with all of the noise. It was a lot of fun.
I haven't been there but this place looks good burgundyeye.com/restaurants/...
Its called Chez Mamie.
