We ended up here after an abortive trip to a pizzeria in Orleans. It took a while on a busy, warm Saturday evening to get a table, but once we were seated service was OK - and the maitre d' seemed like a bit of a character! The food was typical bistro fare - steaks, salads etc. I had a... More

At 8.30pm on a Friday evening we sat at one of the several empty tables outside this restaurant only to be told, without explanation, that the restaurant was full and it was "impossible" to serve us. Au revoir? I don't think so.

The other choices in Orleans were either closed, or the fairly disgusting (to us) choices of pigs feet, intestine blood sausage, goose livers or cooked tripes considered 'gourmet' dining in many parts of France. We happened upon this restaurant and were pleasantly relieved to find a menu with delicious offerings that suited our palates. We had salad starters and then... More

Working in the restaurant business for last 9 years, I can quickly observe what is going on in a restaurant. Today around 12 we decided to have lunch in this place as it was recomended in our travelling guide. We were welcomed by a nice man, given a great table by the window. He was swamped, even if the restaurant... More

Looked nice on the inside so we stepped in for a late dinner. Service was congenial but English was not strong. However their patience with our poor French and general pointing soon had us underway with much smiles and Bon humour. Mussels, scallops were tasty, dish of the night was the apple tart . Great coffee, inexpensive and very attentive... More

Plus points: - Nice terrace in charming surroundings. - local specialities, try the jargeau andouille (some kind of local hot saussage). - the salads are awsome and enough for lunch. - kind and helpful service. Minus points: - a bit expensive for the city.

We had an excellent dinner in this restaraunt for a reasonable price. The place looked much more clean and cozy than other nearby restaraunts, and this impression proved to be correct. The location in the very center of the old city makes this restaurant a good choice for a dinner if you want to enjoy it's atmosphere.

Our host in B&B Les Trois Maillets recommended this restaurant, an for a reason. The food was excellent but not posh, most clients were locals having good time, service was professional.
