Deliciously French

Nice place, great food, decent price -the menu includes a glass of wine and coffee at lunch time, for a total of 26 euros-and this for a three-course meal. On the ground floor in winter time there is a fireplace that gives a nice touch to the place.

I get very impatient with the French and their food fads, but this place was truly wonderful and more-or-less the same price as other restaurants in Chinon - but a zillion times better. Lovely atmosphere, very good service, delicious food. I mean really delicious food.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the area and I have recommended it to many people. In the most historic part of Chinon and such good value. We always go at lunchtime and you cannot fault it. The lady who runs it is very friendly and the service is good. Very clean and a lovely bathroom though it... More

Everything a French restaurant should be: lovely understated surroundings, friendly and relaxed overseen by Madame herself, superb imaginative cooking, right in the centre of Chinon. What more can I say?

The highlight was the salmon starter. Wonderfully fresh high quality salmon with a very special addition of sweet peppery sorbet, crunchy and fresh leaves and cucumber. Perfect! Other courses excellent too, friendly service and pleasant ambience

A warm welcome from madame (who is very happy to speak English if preferred), and a cosy table by an open wood fire made us feel very comfortably at home on a cold November day Menus are very good value, starting at €18 for a choice of two courses, inclusive of a glass of wine and coffee, rising through €26...

I dont doubt that if you want to experience French cuisine thr food at Les Annees 30 is a good choice the menu is limited and prices very expensive - e.g. 20euro for escargo entree. Our experience was further soured by the service - i.e. sour puss waitress. While it is perfectly acceptable that the staff speak only french in... More

Great character in this restaurant situated in the medieval part of Chinon with stone walls and a steep staircase which transports you back to a few hundred years ago, even if the decor is inspired by the 1930s (hence the name). A friendly welcome, nice amuse bouches including on one occasion probably the best gazpacho I've had! Portions are good,... More

The restaurant situated in the old part of town has a lovely atmosphere. We sat outdoors, but inside lookscozy and more formal. It has 3 set menus price tiered from 26-28e; 36-38e and 43-45e, depending on whether you add the cheese course. In each menu section there is a choice from 2 dishes for starters and the main, but a... More
