In the summer we prefer to picnic in one of the idyllic spots in the Champagne region : between the vineyards round the church of Chavot or at a wooden table next to a pond in the woods.
There are of course a number of good and even excellent restaurants in the region.
The best champagne restaurants can be found in and around Reims and Epernay, but the unpretentious restaurants in the champagne villages will astound you with their superb, regional cuisine.
Those local restaurants are perfect for lunchtimes : quick, tasty and your money’s worth..

Lovely, rich plates. Quick and friendly service. One of our favourite spots for lunch.
Park your car at the Place Arthur Puissant just around the corner.
If you want to see the most beautiful view of Cramant, go to the Rue de la Grand Côte.
24, Grande Rue
For a tasty, typical French lunch with a very good price/quality ratio. Thierry serves the drinks and Claire prepares traditional French dishes like: Potée champenoise, Boeuf Bourguignon and Coq au vin. But you should especially taste her risotto with chicken and mushrooms because that is second to none. The ideal stop among friends but they also receive large groups (up to +/-50 pers.).

This is the place to be for the motorcyclist in the Champagne region. But on four wheels you are welcome too. The chef serves traditional dishes: simple but delicious! We tasted an extremely tasty rösti burger with a well-tapped beer from the ‘coolest’ beer tap we ever saw. You can't miss this place because you will immediately notice the muscular bikes parked in front of the door.
