Perfection

We try to eat here once a year and always enjoy the experience. The menu is always interesting and varied. We are always comfortable and never feel we are being rushed

We had eaten here in 2012, but it was a long drive from Saumur. We enjoyed the food so much that we vowed to return if we stayed in Chinon sometime. So this was our chance. We made reservations from the United States and it was a good thing we did, as it is very popular. It was a lovely... More

We chose the Auberge de l'Ile for a celebratory family meal and it was absolut perfection. We were lucky to come on a balmy summer evening and could sit outside on the spacious, flowered terrasse, overlooking the river. The welcome was warm and service was attentive and friendly. For apéritif there are artisan beers from a local micro brewery as... More

We ate here after finding this restaurant in the 2015 Michelin Guide. The menu was interesting and offered some unusual choices along with some exciting surprises - including the chef's signature 'sandwich'. Staff were attentive and friendly, they were also very tolerant and understanding of our appalling French. The decor is as you would expect from a high end restaurant.... More

Wow! Inside, outside and particularly the food was wonderful. It was a cool Sunday August evening but we ate at the table with the view on the river. Our taste buds were dazzled. Wow! The lamb especially was just delicious. Thoroughly recommend for anyone who enjoys great food. After spending ten years visiting the region this is definitely one of... More

Really good place for lunch or dinner. Gorgeous setting inside and out, which in the summer is ideal, being right on the river. Variety of menus and good wine list. Somewhere we like to take friends to as well as just the two of us. Quite pricey. But v.g.experience. Reservation essential.

Had a nearly perfect meal here for lunch. This restaurant has is all, excellent service, amazing wine list, perfect setting, wonderful food with just a touch of whimsy. I thought, for the quality and service the €38 menu was a bargain. Wine mark-up was industry standard 3x wholesale. But with excellent varietals in the region at €6 euros if you... More

A meal here never disappoints, but over the past couple of years there has been something magical taking place in the kitchen, with all the signs of a chef really starting to get into his stride. If this restaurant hasn't been starred in the last Michelin guide it will surely be as all the markers are there. The quality of... More

What an absolute treasure this restaurant is for this region! We also were referred by the B&B at Domaine de Beausejour, and everything was splendid. It helped make this part of our journey to France our most memorable! Even the Amuse-Bouche was interesting and tasty, very unique, and our entrees were both diverse and well-prepared. I had a flash-fried sardine... More
