A good value restaurant with excellent staff

Four of us visited this restaurant early on a Saturday evening and found that it quickly filled up showing that it is a popular choice for many. The staff were absolutely charming and efficient. The choice of food from the fixed price menus was good, as was the quality and value for money. Three... read more

Very good food with extraordinarily accommodating service. A la carte and menu du jour both excellent value for price. Desserts were particularly good. Highly recommended for family meal.

We found this restaurant by chance. The whole experience was excellent. It was so good we went two nights running. Gets full very quickly tourists and locals. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff so attentive. Nancy helped us get a taxi and went out of her way to make our evening special. A highlight of our holiday.

This place looks fairly unassuming from the outside, but the interior is a large, light and airy space. We were impressed with the friendly service, excellent food and generous portions. One of my friends said his seafood risotto was one of the best he'd ever had. Would definitely return.

We found ourselves in Blois without a restaurant reservation and no knowledge of the city. We asked a young lady working in a candy shop and we were very grateful. I was particularly taken by the restaurant because the prior evening we ate at a very expensive restaurant and Poivre et Sel was better. We found the service to be... More

Recommended by staff at local accommodation. Almost entirely locals present, but thoroughly endorse food quality and flavour. Definitely want to go back before we leave Blois. Moderately priced, staff good and attentive.

It's lucky to visit here! Great dishes, nice service, reasonable prices:-) 조금 구석에 위치한 이 레스토랑은 우연히 발견했는데! 아주 만족스러운 식사를 하였습니다:-) 점심 코스요리로 합리적인 가격에 충분히 즐길 수 있었고~ 지역 맛집인건지 점심시간이 되니 레스토랑이 북적북적하더군요. 2층에 앉는걸 추천합니다~

Since it was Monday this place turned out to be our only possible choice. We were quite pleased though. Staff was nice and professional, English speaking. We found little interesting choices in the menu, but what we had was very good. Our entrées were quails and foie gras, we chose beef tartare as main course. Regarding this last one, the... More

The food is pretty good, service was very pleasant also. Ate one of the best risottos so far and the plate was generous. Totally recommended.
