As it's on other side of the Loire to the old town of Blois we wouldn't have visited it if we hadn't used Trip Advisor. It's right next to the bridge so easy to find. Owner delighted to explain the parts of the menu we didn't fully understand and we had a really good meal in this minimalist restaurant. The... More

It has and a nice selection of local wines. Decor is minimal in this local joint where locals gather around the bar at lunch time for a glass of wine as... More

Visited in May 2013. Food great, staff helpful and happy to explain menu items. Bistro-style dining, but with beautifully presented and delicious food rather than that of a run-of the mill establishment. As this was the last night of our holiday none of us wanted a huge meal, so only two courses from the a la carte. We did appreciate... More

Stayed overnight in Blois, and found this restaurant on tripadvisor. Glad we ate here, the staff were very helpful and explained some of the menu that we didn't understand. The meal when it came was very nice, as was the wine, and not expensive. Nice views of the river Loire as well.

Most amazing dish was the entree of carpaccio. Husband was dubious and had never had it but is now a convert. Rest of meal was good and excellent value for money.

Great restaurant on the banks of the Loire. It was raining so not sure if they have tables outside. Frequented mostly by the locals and recommended by our hosts at La Source. We found parking across the road, Lovely food, great efficient service. To be recommended
