Bistrot des Claquets is a charming restaurant/bistro in the pretty Jura village of Arbois. It has a number of attractions. First it opens from early in the morning till late at night. Second it serves very good, hearty food that is a cut above average for country France. Last it has a great range of local (Jura) and other natural wines including those of Michel Gahier and Philippe Bornard. The service is charming as an added bonus.
The meal starts with diners selecting their first course from some buffet items laid out on a table just inside the door. This always includes a beautiful terrine and some light salads. Then comes the dish of the day which might be a slab of smoked pork served with chips and a salad or roast lamb with vegetables followed by a simple dessert such as an apple crumble or similar.
The food is, indeed, very satisfying and not at all fussy.
