This restaurant was very close to our hotel & got good reviews, so decided to try it. The food and service was excellent. There are nice views from the seating along the windows. We had a nice cheese plate to end the meal. There was a mix of dress, but I'd suggest dressy casual.

We had a table with a beautiful view of the sunset over the river. Waitress brought over tastings from the chef before we ordered and before our dessert. We chose the fixed price menu which was wonderful, I will try to post pictures. Service was polite, efficient, friendly- I cannot say enough. Definitely worth eating here!

The reception guy in our hotel recommended us to go to this gastronomic restaurant. We didn't make a reservation, just came there in the dinner time. Fortunately they had a table for us. Approximately a half of the tables was busy. The scallops carpacco was very big, never have seen such big portion of scallops carpaccio. Labgoustines were tasty as... More

I just dined here with my son. The food is fairly average and it is certainly in my opinion not a gastronomic restaurant. The place lacks any ambience, it resembles the breakfast room of a mediocre hotel. My experience at this restaurant was a first for me. It was apparent from asking the staff about the wine that they were... More

This restaurant is located in the hotel Le Choisel where we were staying. It has a very attractive view overlooking the Loire River and the room itself is attractive. The food is very good and the service is good as well. But, the thing they do best are desserts and the amuse-bouche. For dessert I had a "carpaccio of pineapple... More

Chose to dine there mid-October as a last night in France. Selected from reviews here, but noted that the best reviews came from non-Europeans and doubtful ones from Europeans/British. Good setting, well spaced tables staff a little formal. 90% of other diners were non-French tourists. Service very slow and whilst a dover sole was well cooked, the duck arrived tough,... More

Lovely food and service at tables overlooking the Loire. The setting sun over the river was most spectacular.

This restaurant has a very romantic ambience and came highly recommended to us. Our daughter was sleeping while we were dining and the staff were happy to give us a spot to park her pram. While we felt very welcome, the food was surprisingly mediocre especially after all the fabulous French cuisine we had indulged in over the time we... More

Don't let the formality of the reception steer you away from this great restaurant. The food was excellent from entrée to dessert and the wine recommendation couldn't have been better. What a great way to end a lovely day in chateaux country!
