A wave of paradise in every morcel!

What I look for in a restaurant is delicious, good-quality food, and friendly staff. I have to say, this restaurant certainly provides both! With some of the most pleasant food I have tasted and the most welcoming, professional staff, I will definitely be visiting Auberge du Bon Laboureur again. I... read more

We enjoyed dining at a number of Michelin-starred restaurants during a 2-week trip through France. This 1-star was not nearly as good as others rated at the same level. The decor was bland and the food was OK, but not at all impressive. The wine list was similarly mediocre.

loved the meal. high end. varied wine list to include a $4K margaux. wife picked the tenderloin...I recommend going away from easy steak and challenge your taste buds. and not overly expensive...we both ate for 54 euros for the meal not including the drinks or tip.

Delicious food, great service! Make sure you book a table first. The hotel is even better: beautiful room and very cozy! Amazing price.

This was our favourite meal whilst on our latest visit to this area of France. Everything about the experience was delightful. We were invited to have an aperitif in the lounge whilst perusing the menu. We chose the 52 Euro set menu, which although rather short on choices, offered dishes that we were excited to try. We were given two... More

We stayed at le Bon Laboureur on our way north following the recommendation of well travelled friends. Chenonceau is clearly a honey pot for tourists with a selection of Hotels & Restaurants, on a casual inspection le Bon Laboureur looked the pick of the bunch & with a Michelin restaurant. The Hotel is reasonable with a pleasant bar/lounge area although... More

Superb gourmet restaurant. Aperitif on the terrace while you survey the menu then a veritable feast to follow. Not chap but worth every euro

It should be telling that my partner and I were at this restaurant for lunch two days ago after visiting the chateau at Chenonceau, and neither of us remember much about the meal. We both selected the three-course prix fix meal which delivered about right for the price. We've both had many other one Michelin star restaurant meals in France... More

There is no choice on the fixed price menus but when people cook as well as this that is not a particular problem. I was however disappointed by the crumpled look and very crumpled table linen and the strange assortment of China and cutlery. The low point was a delicate fruit pudding presented in heavy orange bowls that would better... More
