We had arranged reservations for a visiting couple from Singapore and when we went 10 minutes before 7:30, to inquire where the taxi would pick them up, we were met with a miserable look from the very young waitress. She was rude, unhappy and we were very close to just not sending this couple there for a special night, all... More

Set into the historic old centre of Chinon, this lovely little restaurant offers very classy service and presentation. The limited menu was delicious and prepared creatively.

I wish I made notes on who had what every time we dined out! What I can say is that we had a lovely meal here in April 2015 with family members on their first trip to France. The menu was extensive and we were able to find things everyone liked -- both those not accustomed to French cuisine and... More

We ordered scallops for dinner, creme brûlée for dessert. The food tasted ok, but nothing that had us wanting more and more. The waiter/waitress seemed rushed to get us out. We were half ways done with dinner, I stopped to speak to my significant other and we were approached to ask if we were done to take our plates away.... More

We had a delightful meal. We only order fish mains and dessert. The fish was well prepared in a delicate way. We thought that the way the menu prices were structured did not make it easy if you wanted the plat and dessert which ended up costing only a little less than a three or four couse set menu (...

We returned to Les Annees 30 in March, it was market day in Chinon and we had booked a table for lunch as we expected it to be heaving - in fact only one other table was taken and the ambiance seemed "flat". We felt for the (very pleasant) staff as the food was to a high standard as usual.... More

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
