It was recommended by the hotel, but it was on our list of places to eat anyway, after reading TA. We were not disappointed, the welcome was great, and the service very good. It help that the staff spoke better English than our French, and certainly contributed to our choices. It was a Tuesday, and busy, with a mixed group... More

We've eaten at Les Banquettes Rouges some five or six times over several years. It's a must do restaurant everyt time we are in Bois and it never ever fails to impress. In Blois this time we tried four different restaurants. All similar prices, but the orginality of the menu, the quality of the cooking and the elegance of the... More

Visited here on TA recommendation - quite difficult to find but it was good we booked as it was packed to bursting on a Tuesday night and people were being turned away. It seemed very simple - red seating as the name suggested spilling out onto the street and only a few tables so we did not expect much although... More

Booked a table for lunch as advised and arrived to find the restaurant empty. Rather disappointed we decided that the set lunch menu would be the safest choice. At 17.50 euros it turned out to be excellent with imaginative dishes well presented and bursting with flavour. The restaurant filled up and the ambiance was much improved. Local wine was very...

Interesting menu outside, good atmosphere inside and creative dishes, very nice personnel, good wines and reasonable price. We had a very good lunch in this tiny place, and also enjoyed talking to our neighbours

We mapped out our walk to Le Castelet in Blois due to the great review on Trip Advisor. Sadly when we got there the restaurant was dark. We entered a little shop next door and in broken English were told that Le Castelet is closed on Wed nights! The shopkeeper recommended Les Banquettes Rouge and we headed down the street.... More

Fine food, fresh, good quality, excellent service for a good price. In the city center of Blois in the "chateau"-region.

Great food in a cozy restaurant with friendly staff. My wife especially liked her main course of calves liver.

Thanks to my husband to bring me to one of his favorite restaurant in Blois, I almost doubted his choice at first glance the tinny restaurant from outside. It was a full house Thursday night and we arrived late (for Blois, 9pm should be accounted as late, I guess) we took the last table left. As I know little French... More
