Unusually they are open Sunday and Monday evenings which is rare in Loches. Really pleasant staff but occasionally they are a bit stretched. Small choice of starters but they are good. Large choice of pizzas and they are very good. There is also a small range of other main dishes. The duck breast was truly spectacular and the steak also... More

We went here twice during our visit to Loches. The service was good, not rushed at all, we certainly didn't have to wait too long like has been previously mentioned, even though the restaurant was busy. Waiters were courteous and attentive.The food was excellent both times we were there.

We tried La Farfalla on 3 different occasions. We went once for dinner, twice for lunch. The lunch special was reasonably priced, the portions were above average. My wife enjoyed the rotini with three cheeses. We also tried pasta with tomato sauce, it was dry. The sauce was lightly sprinkled on the pasta that you could not really taste the... More

It should have been a warning when we walked in and the faces of the other guests were frowning. Do not go to Farfala unless you have time to kill! It was our first evening out in Loches and was not a good memory. The pizzas were good once they arrived but weren't worth waiting for. Be careful before visiting... More

Arrived having just driven from the ferry, and just wanted a drink to start with before finding somewhere to eat. They would only serve drink with food at this time, so decided to eat as well. The starter of various vegetables stuffed with tuna paste was really unusual and delicious. The chicken with lemon was also tasty. Weren't expecting much,... More

Lady owner wouldn't serve us a drink unless we ate lunch. So my husband and I, left went somewhere else for that cold drink, and gave them... More
