The Dining room

The Ravoux Inn, wine shop and restaurant since 1876, has preserved its distinctively 19th-century décor and atmosphere.
The delicious smells wafting in from the kitchen, the soft murmur of conversation, the ten waxed oak dining tables, the wine crates, old-fashioned bar and linen tablecloths in red and white all transport those who visit back in time.
Seven-hour lamb, coq au vin, blanquette de veau, pot-au-feu, waterzooi – each dish, prepared with fresh ingredients from the local market, pays tribute to the cuisine and lifestyle of days gone by.
Van Gogh had his table at the back of the room. Later, Malraux had his table close to the window. Today, lovers of art and fine dining, be they famous or unknown, visit the Auberge to indulge their love of food and culture.
At the Ravoux Inn, we value unpretentious guests and humour the more complicated ones.

Dining at Ravoux

Our chef, Margot Mialon, working under the direction of Pierre-Jean Delmas, brings the great classics of traditional French cooking back to life by making use of ingredients typical of the nineteenth century. Whenever possible, she uses produce from small local businesses.
We offer three culinary experiences in our dining room:
  • Around a cocotte  (served from 12 p.m. to 2.30 p.m.):
    A Ravoux Inn speciality served in the traditional cocotte. The menu changes weekly depending on our chef’s creative vision and the availability of fresh ingredients from the market - €24.
    Starters and/or desserts can be ordered at extra cost – €32 - €39.

The Ravoux Inn, which has been operating as a wine shop since 1876, works with highly knowledgeable sommeliers to select the wines best paired with each dish. Our well-stocked cellar caters to both big and small appetites and guests can order all sizes of bottles.

The complete history

Vincent van Gogh spent only 70 days in Auvers-sur-Oise. Yet he was extraordinarily prolific in this short time, because he was inspired by the picturesque site with its inhabitants and surroundings to paint close to 80 canvases, which come alive for us in the winding streets of the village.
