Excellent food, courteous staff, magical surroundings, a little pricey,but worth it! A perfect ending to an absolutely wonderful visit to this beautiful chateau.

Lunch at L'Orangerie was a perfect conclusion to a wonderful morning exploring the Chateau Chenonceau and her extraordinary gardens. We had looked into the adjacent café and nearly ate there but decided to explore further. Without a booking we were greeted warmly and professionally and shown to a table in the patio area (the main restaurant was full with a... More

This restaurant was as good, if not better than any high end French restaurant in a large US city, at 1/4 of the price. My husband and I had a four course meal and a bottle of wine for about $100. The food was amazingly good with great ambiance.

We had a lovely dinner, both ordering different options on the set menu. Due to strong preferences, I asked to swap out of dish and the server readily gave me some other options, for which I was grateful. The setting, overlooking the chateau was beautiful. Such a scene and such good food, though, came at not a cheap price, but... More

Do not miss this restaurant or the chateau. And while you're there, take a dip in the Cher as Diane de Poitiers did back in the day. She was the "consort" to the King.

We came upon this restaurant by pure hazard during our travels, expecting the usual tourist trap (as it is located inside the Chenonceau grounds). But to be honest it was one of the best meals we've had during a 3 week trip in France, looking at the price, setting and food. We did not make a reservation, but came in... More

We sat in the covered patio area and not the original Orangerie. We had a table overlooking the garden and the Château (half visible through the trees). Very good service. Artistic plating and good wine list. Great value given the location. We booked in advance online (we also bought tix online for the Château). The marginal additional cost of eating... More

The best lunch I have ever had. The presentations were works of art and were so beautiful that you almost did not want to eat them. Go. You will not be disappointed. As other reviewers have indicated, the prices are a bit high side. That said, I felt I definitely got more than what I paid for. Just wonderful.

This restaurant is somewhat set back from the main Chenonceau Chateau attraction and offers a haven of peace and tranquility in what can be a very busy place. The service, food and ambiance are all excellent. I have included some photos of the restaurant with my review of the Chateau.
