Wine and Snacks

Stopped in for some wine in the late afternoon. Had a delicious local wine recommended by the proprietor, who also gave us tapenade and croutons. Recommend for a glass of wine and snacks.

We ate in this restaurant a lot while staying in blois. The food is amazing particularly the deserts. The cafe gourmand is a must.

We'd been cycling all morning children aged 15, 13. 10 and 8. We were ready for lunch. Really delivered, great with children who had their fabulous children's menu. Jen declared it a fabulous salad nicoise and my bavette as ever fabulously understated. Lewi a truculent 15 loved both his duck and massive ice cream Back to the bikes

It is a pleasant location near the river with a view to the castle. I wouldn't call it exactly fine dining, but it was ok as an overall experience. The food is tasty, but the service can improve. There is no English menu and the staff does not make too much effort to help. Our local host recommended us the... More

Food was ok only. There wasn't anything bad about the food, but there certainly wasn't anything to either rave about or worth going back for. Service was excellent though.

The overall experience made all members of our family very happy. The view on the Loire River and the skyline of Blois was unique. The selection of wines, appetizers and main courses was just perfect. Not too many items to choose from, but everyone was very pleased with what they ordered. Of course, we all shared tasting from each other’s... More

We went here because of the positive Trip advisor reviews. The server was very friendly and explained the menu to us in English. We ordered a pork shop, some kind of white fish, beef tartar, and 3 kinds of cheeses. The food was nicely presented and fresh. The pork chop was really tender. The fish was done nicely and my...

Found this place by chance, looking for a parking spot! Located on the 'wrong' bank of the Loire, opposite the chateau. The place was packed at lunch (good sign). It is half specialist wine bar, half restaurant. House smoked salmon, casserole of frogs legs - doesn't get more French than that - braised Guinea fowl, rich with poultry flavour and... More

If you like your food really 'French' then you need to give this a try. It's just over the bridge in 'vienne' Blois & worth the little extra walk. Very nice.
