We just had to give this restaurant a try as soon as we saw it. It's in the prettiest part of the medieval section of Chinon. A tiny little place, as old as the hills, judging by the wooden timbered frontage. We sat on the terrace and had a lovely "degustation" menu which came beautifully presented on pretty plates. We finished it off with a cafe gourmand - also to be recommended. It all tasted beautiful and home-made. Attentive and charming service. Staff spoke English, but let us use our French, which we appreciated, as it can feel a bit patronising when they cut in with English when you're having a go with the language. You pay a little more for the location, maybe, but very much worth it. Take the opportunity to use the loo - it's bonkers, with an old brass teapot attached to the wall, with its handle used to hold the loo roll!
