Food is good but atmosphere could be better

We ate at Poivre et Sel for a weekday lunch based on a recommendation from a friend. They looked busy - we arrived at 1330 and they were pretty full. We ordered one of the plates of the day - steak, chips and salad which was good value at E9.40. The food came quickly and efficiently. The food was... read more

We stayed at an air bnb and our host recommended this as her favorite restaurant in Blois. It didn't disappoint and was one of our best meals in France.

We are largely self catering during our stay in France but fancied a meal out. This restaurant was pretty busy by 7.30pm with the balance of tables already reserved. We were seated inside. Outside was a menu translated into English, which we took time to look at. Once seated we had quite a long wait until firstly we were bought... More

Well located close to the Blois Castle, the restaurant was full of people making reservations in advance. We noted that half of the visitors seemed to be locals - good point! We were six and ordered different dishes, and all of us were happy, as the food was delicious. The waiter forgot to order to the cook one dish, and... More

Your local host recommended the place for us and it turned up to be a very good choice. Tasty food, plenty of choices and good service. Make sure you book in advance as it is full in most of the times. The prices are decent as well.

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 of our table chose profiteroles for... More

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.
