Welcome to the Duverger

Hôtel Restaurant de la Gare - Saint-Paul de Varax

Hôtel-Restaurant Le Duverger :
moments of authentic gastronomy
between Bresse and Dombes

In the heart of the shimmering Ain and the verdant Dombes, where the eye marvels at the flight of birds in the land of "a thousand ponds", the Hotel-Restaurant Le Duverger welcomes you from Tuesday to Sunday for moments of eminently gourmet gastronomy, based on traditional, fine and revisited local cuisine. Whether on a shady terrace or in the chic and cosy atmosphere of its two spacious dining rooms, Le Duverger cultivates the art of good living and good entertaining.

With family, friends, on business, visiting or during a tourist stay in the heart of an exceptional natural heritage... Le Duverger reserves its finest regional recipes for the finest palates, as well as quality nights in air-conditioned rooms with every comfort.


The Chef has more than one star to his bow, and you can also entrust him with the customised preparation of your catering buffets, receptions and group meals. He will have at heart to enamel with creative and refined flavours the sweet and salty table of your most beautiful events.


Our gastronomic specialities,
but much more besides

Masters of local gastronomy, the Duverger Chefs concoct for you great traditional specialities, with the unmissable fresh frog legs or the highly tasty Duverger-style carp fillet, not forgetting the Bresse PDO chicken whose reputation is well established.

Based on our menu rich in regional specialities and fresh local produce, three gastronomic menus are available from Tuesday to Sunday lunchtime, as well as two daily formulas inspired by the Chef's gourmet moods. Group menus are only available on reservation, from 20 people.

History, cuisine and restaurant

At Le Duverger, we appreciate the conviviality and the transmission of a culinary heritage. Founded in 1865, the Hotel Restaurant de la Gare - Le Duverger - was long renowned for its frogs and regional menus. Sundays in the past were packed; people came from Lyon, Bourg-en-Bresse, and sometimes from much further afield... This heritage and reputation, dear to Chefs Franck and Adrien Sucillon, has endured since 19..., and the curious eye of the guests will appreciate the traces of beautiful celebrities who enjoyed or still enjoy the gastronomic table of Duverger.

New for Fall 2022 ! The beautiful courses never end except for the one of the succession and the transmission.

After long and beautiful years of work, Franck "gives back his apron and his hat" so fairly deserved. Adrien Sucillon and Frédéric Boucaud are now happy to welcome you, as always, as before, in the pure line of the family heritage and of a creative local cuisine.

Respectively Caterer - Pastry - Chocolatier and Chefs, Franck yesterday, Adrien and Frederic today, all have a taste for detail and pleasurable menus.
