Focus on two tables set up in the dining room

On the banks of the Saône,
panoramic dining rooms

The restaurant Le Poisson d’Or is located between the Marina and the Saint-Laurent bridge, on the banks of the Saône in Mâcon. The river and harbour are revealed through the large windows of the two rooms of the restaurant. Panoramic, they offer you the most wonderful view throughout your meal. The atmosphere of the restaurant also plays on this proximity with the Saône.

The contemporary decor is inspired from this: walls looking like multi-coloured wooden palisades, curtains reminiscing fishing nets, a clock where a gold fish escapes from ... Here everything is chic and trendy and with a lovely warm atmosphere.

The terrace

Enjoy a tasty meal on the banks of the Saône. The exotic wooden shaded terrace of the Poisson d'Or welcomes you in fine weather. The river and the charming ballet of boats accompany all your moments here.

The calm and serenity are omnipresent ; two steps from downtown Macon, the restaurant is located between the river and the North Park, a natural environment, cool and with beautiful scenery.

The Calloud family welcomes you

In the kitchen, head chefs Pascal and Jefferson Calloud, concoct a gourmet and seasonal cuisine, made from fresh products and, as often as possible, selected from local producers. The terroir continually inspires the two head chefs : Bresse poultry, Burgundy snails, frogs, pears in red wine sauce, iced soufflé with marc de Bourgogne, etc.

Together, they transcend the purely Burgundy flavours throughout the seasons with their inspiration and their creativity ; an subtle blend of tradition and modernity. Thus, foie gras meets a sweet wine jelly and mango chutney, pike perch is accompanied by snails and a fresh herb broth, cheese can be eaten with a vegetable jam from a home made recipe… and the flagship of the house, the home-made smoked salmon, also attests the head chefs know how.

The desserts, from which the young Chef Jefferson made his specialty, reveals the same inventiveness : revisited lime pie, chocolate sphere, crème brûlée... Playful and delicious preparations that will bring a successful ending to your meal.

Be surprised by the generous and elegant dishes made by the head chefs Calloud father and son, a duo united by the same passion to satisfy and surprise you with renewed flavours.

In the dining room, we find this same generosity with the duo formed by the chefs’ wives, Gillian and Aneta Calloud. They are indeed the best ambassadors of the Poisson d'Or and will be happy to help you discover the wonderful cooking. Both of them can advise you throughout your meal and guide you in the choice of your wine. Respectively English and Czech, Gillian and Aneta are also very happy to welcome our international customers.
