A restaurant attached to a hotel. We were booked in here by our bike tour company, even though we were staying at another hotel 10 minutes away (I think they are linked). Light and airy and the staff attentive. Sea themed decor Local produce is served including fish from the Loire. Lots of choice and an interesting wine list.

The "double saveurs" menu is absolutely worth trying. Very good value for money, decent wine list at very fair prices. Staff is friendly and the restaurants nicely decorated.

Great hotel restaurant. Straightforward but stylish food served with pleasant efficiency. Some unusual combinations - such as onion tart with seafood - that work well. Good traditional French staples too like decent steak cooked "saignant".

We went there due to the Michelin Guide recommendation and chose to ignore the bad recommendations here on this site. It was very disappointing. Too greasy too little taste and worse than the cheapest brasseries we have visited in France. In addition the service was unfriendly and unwelcoming. It is really strange that this restaurant can have a guide Michelin... More

Our hotel, which is nice, recommended that we go here. Things sounded tempting on the menu. However all three of us were seriously disappointed in what was served. My salmon, which was OK, was served with a tough, flavorless potato waffle and a dollop of soggy julienne vegetables. My friend's steak was adequate, though a bit tough, and served with... More

The food here was poor, the selection was poor, the service was slow, the entry way overpowers you with the smell of cloying incense, and the space is uninteresting. There are many better places to eat - there have to be!
