Interesting food, some imagination shown. Fixed price menu (2 or more courses) offered only - which is fine if that suits you. Service was efficient rather than especially friendly.

The restaurant is in one of the oldest streets in Blois,narrow... More

We visited one evening and enjoyed an interesting meal. The restaurant is small and the tables are closer together than we would prefer. The salmon starter was beautifully presented and generous but the other starters were not so good. Wine was reasonably priced and the overall bill was acceptable. In common with other restaurants in Blois the vegetables were disappointingly... More

My wife and I have just had a lovely meal in this cosy little restaurant (30 covers). It was recommended by our B&B and deservedly so. The welcome was warm, the service excellent and the food really good. We stuck to mains and dessert and this was sufficient with pre-meal nibbles, amuse-bouche and bread. We both had the special of... More

Authentic French restaurant. Locals and visitors in an intimate setting. Only about eight tables. Food was good and the price was reasonable. Our waitress spoke some English.

My parents were sceptical about the restaurant as it is not the type of food they usually go for, but by the end of the evening they were converted. The service was excellent and the staff were patient. My dad loved the veal and the steak, which my mum and I had, was cooked perfectly for each of us. It... More
