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.

Nothing to really object to, but a nothing to write home about either. Pleasant enough surroundings.

We ate in 4 town centre restaurants in Blois and this was the nicest. We tried one night and it was full but the next night they could offer a table. Lovely menu choice and the food was well cooked and enjoyable with good portions. Efficient service and the place had a buzz.

We asked for a restaurant recommendation at our hotel and were very happy we went. Its a nice restaurant in the historic center and the staff was very professional and friendly. We loved our food and spent a pleasant time there.

Our hotel made a reservation for us there and the place looked nice enough when we arrived. Service was spotty and the meals not that good. My pork was way dried out and my wife's was just ok.

We had a very nice dinner. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The furnishing is really nice and comfortable. The cook is good and the presentation is super chammy. No negatives with the exception of the waiter that left us alone for 40 minutes. Overall, the food is worth the price but the service isn't.

7 of us had a very nice meal, the hot salads are particularly good. Quality is excellent, price reasonable. Also recommend their special deserts with a coffee! 6€.

We ate here twice, on successive evenings. We went back the second time because it was very good. Service was pretty good but waiting times did extend quite a bit after 8pm so arriving at opening time would avoid this. Getting the bill took too long but not a major issue. Portions are a good size so we only managed... More
