After spending 4 nights in Blois and going to a different restaurant every time, we decided to try this place for our last dinner in the city. And it was a good decision, as the service was quick and friendly, and the food was tasty. There are several traditional dishes; I personally recommend their Coq au Vin that was delicious.... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife and 7 year old daughter while on holiday. We chose it based on tripadvisor reviews having first tried to get into Le Castellet but is was full. We were seated on the terrace and as there were thundery showers around the manager took time to move the table and chairs so they... More

Being a bit unadventurous about what I eat I was anxious about Lyonnsaise cuisine. I found, however, that the menu offered a good choice of exciting and varied dishes. Well worth a visit.

The price of the menu was quite reasonable (3 courses for ~22 euros) and the portions were generous, especially the starter and the dessert. The food was good, but nothing particularly special, except the dessert which in our opinion was fantastic: try the tarte Tatin or the crumble with pears and apples!

The meats are very well prepare, and the house wine is very good (quality vs price) Overall we had a great experience, good value for money; We paid 75€ for the two of us, and we had the foi gras to share,...

We happened on the restaurant when visiting Blois in the early evening on a Saturday. The owner was very welcoming. The unpretentious three-course menu at 22 euros included a lot of traditional choices, although quite a few had small supplements of 3 or 4 euros. The food could have been "just fine" and we would have been happy. As it... More

We went here based on the reviews and were not disappointed. A typical French restaurant nestling in the shelter of the chateau and very central. Good tasty food. We chose from the 'menu' at 22 euros (3 courses). Portions were ample and there was a good choice for each course. I had the mushrooms and snails, the beef and an... More

The place looks pretty and charming, however the food was a disaster. My mother had Coq-au-Vin for her main course and it was obviously microwaved and very chewy. I had a cod dish which was nothing special, but also found a large piece of plastic wrap in my vegetables. When I complained, I got a "bizarre" from the waiter, but... More
