Located directly next to the Cathedral there is little doubt that Le Bistrot de la Cathedrale has one of the best locations in Chartres. Partly because of the location we were a little dubious that the food could live up to the surroundings but we were wrong to worry. There was an excellent a la carte menu that served fabulous...

We were recommended to eat here by the hotel staff, but have now let them know of our negative experience. First the one and only positive - the location is great, right by the cathedral. However, our visit was a series of setbacks, which mounted up to create a very unpleasant experience. We were a group of French and English,... More

Last night I ate in a supposed Michelin one star restaurant in Nevers. This restaurant is of two star rating if the one in Nevers is still rated! Excellent food, good service and if the number of people eating there is a measure of quality then this restaurant is top notch and worth trying. From a discerning diner.

We thank you so much for your your great advice about your lunch at Le Bistrot which is not actually a 1 star Michelin restaurant but we are also distinguished by this guide as a good "bistrot". And Le George is the only 1 star restaurant of Chartres and has the same owner as the Bistrot. Hoping to welcome you... More

Exquisite french meal in perfect setting. So good we returned for a second night for another meal. Staff very helpful and appreciated our attempts to use the language. Henry IV Poulet was delicious and the steak the following day was cooked to perfection. Our thanks to the staff for two wonderful experiences.

This is a restaurant with top notch french traditional cuisine. Never expected that much from a place that is right on the cathedral square, when one would assume that to be a place "reserved" for more touristy stuff. But the foie gras, Henry IV Poulet were both done really deliciously. The dessert Souffle was amazing. Its certainly a great place... More

We had shrimp salad as an entree, and a large piece of pork w fries as a main course. Dessert was a chocolate cream puff. By American standards this doesn't seem like much, but, the service with a.
