Having always been told never to trust a thin chef, that myth was exploded after our visit to this chic and neat gastro hideaway in Chinon. He is "Front of House" she is "Dans le Cusine"! Just how the two of them manage to keep it all together, with service accurate and efficient is scarcely believable! I had house=made Foie... More

We know most of the restaurants in Chinon as we live full-time in France, and close by. La Part des Anges stands out for quality, creativity and affordability. It's a gem. Quite small, but like the food, the restaurant is perfectly formed, with some space upstairs as well as downstairs, and in the summer, a few tables outside. It's run... More

Our first thanks must go to the staff at the Hotel Diderot for recommending La Part des Anges. What an absolutely terrific find at a very, very good price. As mentioned in earlier reviews, this tiny restaurant is run by a husband and wife team that really do a great job. He runs to front room, from taking orders, recommending... More

We had a long drive through Spain and France after our ferry back to the UK from Santander was cancelled and we were rerouted to Caen - Chinon was a convenient overnight stop and La Part des Anges was recommended by the nearby hotel. We found a small (around 20 covers), simply furnished restaurant which was run very capably by... More

We ate at this restaurant earlier this week. It is very small so you are best advised to book ahead. Run by a team of just 2 young people - one in the kitchen and one in the restaurant - they do an excellent job. We took the 4 course set menu and were not disappointed. With just 2 choices... More

Pre booked when staying overnight Friday locally en route to the south based on TA reviews and not disappointed at all! A small unpretentious restaurant in a quiet street close to the centre of Chinon run by a young couple who coped really well with the full restaurant. Madame does all the cooking and you can see in to the... More

We ate here four of the six times we ate out in Chinon. Virginia and Herve are dedicated to their craft and are passionate about their little restaurant. Virginia takes care of everything in the kitchen and offers various set menus for lunch and dinner, starting with a complimentary amuse bouchée, which is a velouté of some kind, perhaps mushroom...

You obviously need to book. We were fortunate to get the last table. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was imaginative, beautifully presented and at a reasonable price. Well worth a return visit.
