Great dining experience

Really great vibe in this restaurant. Plenty of choice on the menu and the food was great. Degustation of wine is a great idea, the sommelier will choose based on your menu choice. Very reasonably priced

This was a fun place to eat. We were with a group and were treated well. The food was tasty and well prepared. Of course the wine was delicious!

It looked like rain so we decided to eat indoors and searched for something to tickle the tastebuds. Vinomania has seating both in and outdoors in the square. The aim of the concept is to match wines to foods for the uninitiated like us. We decided on our meal and went for a carafe of Rose. The food was great... More

Our last day in Blois, we decided to have a nice lunch. We were staying in accommodation just 100m down the road from this place and had walked past it every day for the past week. This was a mistake because we would have saved money by buying our wine from here rather than by the bottle elsewhere. Many wines... More

If you are in Blois for the chateau, then take time out for this: just back off the main street up from the bridge, Vinomania is a great wine and food centre. At lunch try the set plates + 3 glasses of wine. Great value and great food. We had the Mixte with all the auccissons etc, huge plate and... More

Great food, large portions... We had the chicken and seafood salad. Both were above average. Wine is no where near good and we are not even connoisseurs. Most of everything on the list are table wines.

We went to Vinomania to have dinner and enjoy a glass of wine and we ended up listening to a concert there: it was great african music and the food was also very good. the wine was also excellent so all in all it was a success and I would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting Blois;

When you want to pay you had to wait for a very long time. The quality of the plates are very different. The lamb chops were awe full . I couldn't not cut them with my knife. The foie gras however was superb.

The restaurant was very close to the apartment we had rented and it offered a reasonably priced menu including some items where you appeared to have three courses each served with a different wine. We chose two different selections and then sat back only to have to wait an hour and have two platters each with the three items and... More

The gentleman who runs it was very helpful. We wanted to be vey specific to only drink local and he set us up right. Also, we were heading to Bordeaux later in the week and he gave us great wineries to check out while we were there. One thing to note, they have some of their decent wines come in... More
