Best meal we've had in France

Unassuming and with a simple menu however the food is superb and beautifully presented. Everything on the plate tastes delicious. The food is all the more amazing as it is cooked by the co-owner who works alone in a very small kitchen in full view of diners. Witnessing her work is like watching a... read more

We are sooooo happy we stumbled upon this place! Prices are reasonable. Simple menus, yet your mind is blown when the food tastes your lips. We had an asparagus dish to begin with that was epic. The veal and potatoes were so moist, cooked perfectly. The poached pear topped with pop-rock candy we thought was brilliant and added a wonderful... More

Lucky we have pre-searched a restaurant in Chinon to find this one because it is small and inconspicuous and you would not imagine there is such a brilliant cook working in that small kitchen. We have ordered the menu (29 Euro) which was a great choice. The Foie Gras for starters was delicious with a great small Brioche bun alongside... More

Delicious meal from the young couple best we've had in Chinon at a very reasonable price. Very nice local wine list.

We booked a table well in advance for a mid week Wednesday evening meal. Good job we did. It was just "Superb". The food, although a limited menu was fabulous. The beetroot ensemble starter was a work of art both visually and in taste. The Fois Gras exceptional. After having read all the other reviews and comments what is vitally... More

We have visited this restaurant previously for dinner, but this time enjoyed lunch. The interior decor of the restaurant is very attractive, as is the presentation of the menus, and we were welcomed by the patrons. The service is excellent - just the right pace, not too intrusive, with a helpful suggestion as to which wine we might order, which... More

Excellent cooking all done by Virginie - original, beautifully executed, nothing but praise. It's a business at the start of its career and it shows: upstairs dining room a bit Spartan, husband and wife running it without help despite which service v friendly and attentive. Give it a bit longer and one or two more staff and it could be... More

This was by far the best meal we had in three weeks in France. I believe the wife does the cooking and the husband does the serving. The lunch we had was gourmet plus. The house foie gras was delicious. Our dessert was a true work of art! The price was very reasonable for such a high quality dining experience.... More

We enjoyed an evening meal at this lovely restaurant at the end of our holiday in France. We hadn't booked but saw the owners just before opening time and asked if they had a table. We were full downstairs so we opted for a table upstairs and we soon joined by two other couples. Everything was special from the menu... More

Went for lunch with my wife and our three month old, we were welcomed and looked after from start to finish (and our kid was out cold for the duration, thankfully!) Food was exquisite, price very reasonable indeed considering the quality and dedication on display. If you only eat once in Chinon, eat here.
