Visited on a week day evening during a week long Loire valley holiday. The positives were the service was very nice and the starters very tasty. Also the chocolate mouse very good. The place was quite old fashioned and the cuisine reflected that. My main course a very heavy pork and bean dish and one disappointing vegetarian main course which... More

Le Castelet is a lovely restaurant tucked in a lovely old part of Blois. The meal we had there was home food style, but beautifully cooked and presented with quality ingredients and bags of flavour. Excellent service too. Would definitely recommend.

Managed to get a table here by booking late afternoon, having watched the stream of people who were disappointed through the evening we did well. Food was very nice, not too expensive for a main street in the tourist season, fabulous creme brulee!

This may be number #10 on TA, but it blew away the #3 in Blois,L'appart'the, for a mere $5 extra per person. See my review on L'apparthe for my adivce to avoid it. Now back to Le Castelet: Strange that the reviews all mention a 3 person family operation, where the husband "explains the entire menu to you", as he... More

The owner was very helpful translating the menu and we ordered a goat cheese salad and veal with vouvray. Both were very good. The veal was tender and delicious.

Dinner for three, reservation made at 8 pm. When arrived, only available table was the one reserved for us; restaurant is really small, and tables are close to each other, however, atmosphere is nice, clients are not talking in loud voice. Selected the three-step menu, ordered asparagus soup, jour of the day (fish, very well prepared) and mousse de chocolat.... More

Managed to get a table for dinner at this cosy bistro (it was Saturday, after all) by phoning in the morning. Place was full and humming by 20.30. Meal was excellent, as was service. A very pleasant experience.

Nice little restaurant in the city center of Blois. You definitely need to book otherwise be sure not to get any seats unless really lucky. It was totally packed. Overall food was more than good, really liked the mousse au chocolat as dessert... The owner is a funny guy... Nice evening and overall price/quality ratio really good.

One of the few restaurants open on the Monday evening the basic menu outside seemed to have at least a couple of vegetarian options so my partner was happy. Once inside the full menu had a formula vegetarian and the choice was very good. The soup was excellent and the goats cheese very tasty. The pork dish of the day... More
