Perfect lunch in the shade by the river

Simply prepared fresh food with a Mediterranean accent, and good local wine, make this a great spot for lunch, especially outdoors by the river. It is just slightly out of the way, but not far from many of the sights and attractions in the Loire Valley. The service was welcoming and... read more

Lovely traditional bistro with very friendly staff and gite/apartments at only 80 euros/night. Excellent cuisine at very reasonable prices, and full most evenings with French- a good sign. Over a long weekend we worked our way through the menu with no disappointments. Splendid cave to pick your wine including good selection of Loire, particularly local Cheveny.

Such potential! Beautiful location, everything is so promising. The food is awful. Poulet Fermier was a boiled chicken wing with a bit of white chicken. Two of my close friends live in V. and hang their heads in shame at the poor show this is.
