“Quality French cuisine with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

I visited this restaurant to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. We had a fantastic lunch!

Ambience: charming, particularly in the atrium area. Our tables was at the back in a cosy room furnished with leather sofas.

Staff: extremely polite and friendly. They seemed genuinely interested in providing a high standard of customer service - unusual for France in my experience.

Food: brasserie style with quality ingredients. Our starters & desserts arrived almost immediately after ordering - perhaps slightly too quick for my taste

Price: dishes adequately priced.

Overall impression: great for Sunday lunch!

“Delicious food, good service, reasonable value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2010

I've tried a few places in Chartres over the years, but this is undoubtedly the nicest. I have a friend who lives in the city and who says it is the best for qualité/prix rapport. It's the dining room / bistrot of the hotel Grand Monarque set in an airy covered terrace, and like all good eateries in France gets busy most nights. Most diners select from the various choices on the menu du jour, I think there were choices of 3 for each course; all the same price. But there is a less interesting a la carte for fussy diners. Chartres is lovely these days, especially with the extensive son-et-lumiere show on the principal buildings all summer, at least try and see the cathedral at night. Parking also, unusually for France, is easy with plenty of underground, though not cheap, spaces in the centre.

“Great French cuisine with friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

My wife and I ate lunch inside, not on the street patio. The decor was elegant, almost grand, The soup, always a mark of a kitchen, was outstanding and the Caesar salad was not covered in a cloying dressing. Friends of ours ate dinner there, not in the main resaurant in the same hotel, and were equally happy about the cuisine and the service. One caution, is that it is somewhat highly priced (Euro 15 for a Caesar salad).
