This charming restaurant is set in an old 16th century building. The quality of the food is excellent and the place not ostentatious. Excellent value for the refinement you will enjoy, with quality local wines you will not find outside of Chinon.

This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in France. The setting is in the old city in one of the old homes. The staff is friendly and helpful. They spoke some English, but were patient with my poor French. The food was spectacular. Started with fois gras which was very special, followed by a beautifully cooked... More

Fabulous French restaurant, in the centre of Chinon tucked down a side street you would blink and miss it ! A small, luxurious and intimate place, perfect for a romantic meal with your partner. Delicious and imaginative cuisine on the menu. Had to brush up on my french as they speak very little english here. However it all added to... More

The waitresses were charming, helpful and could speak English when our French failed. The food was well-prepared and presented.

We spent 2 weeks in France and this was one of our favorite meals. Small and cozy restaurant, great ambiance. The food was delicious and well priced for the quantity and quality. We ordered the "Le M" and "Le C". The foie gras, Filet de Canette and Filet de Bœuf were delicious! The Fromage was lovely as well - the... More

As soon as you enter you are surprised by the quaint and well thought out colours in the interiors. It seems to be run by a couple and they are very attentive to the patrons. The food was just outstanding, it is true french gastronomy deserving some stars if only I could give them! There is no fan fare with... More

If we could rate Les Annees 30 higher than five, we would. Our meal there has been the topic of conversation ever since we left. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful. As appetizers, the smoked salmon with red pepper sorbet was inspiringly presented, while the crab cake basically set a new standard for crab cakes. The Sétoise fish with risotto... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at our B&B. The room was very pleasant. The waitstaff was efficient. The wine list was quite good with plenty of local wines. The meal was one of our best in France. I strongly recommend this restaurant. You should make a reservation.

We ate outside on the covered terrace. Notwithstanding being outside the immediate sight of the serving staff, the service was charming and attentive and the meal well paced. The food was subtle but with plenty of flavour. We would most definitely have returned had it not been closed for the next two days. It felt like a special meal without... More

Returned here after a memorable meal some years ago. Found the food still very good but were dismayed to see the room had been redecorated to what the owners presumably thought was a more upscale standard. They traded charm for a rather grey formality. Still a really nice meal, though.
