“Good decent cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We booked a table for four, sunday Noon - you need to book if you go Sunday. We had to wait 20 minutes before they came to take our order in spite of having asked three times. I would not say the staff is "friendly", they provide service, period. There is a fixed menu on weekends, 30€ for apetizer, entrée, cheese, AND desert. Cannot go for less!! We had Terrine campagnarde, rabbit confit in Amora sauce, pork loin, and one ordered porc "cheek" which was in the menu but no longer avaialable. We had one chocolate and speculos terrine, one tiramisu, one pineapple puff, and one panacotta for desert, trying thus all the deserts in the menu. One bottle of a côteau de Loir wine (local), a bottle of Badoit water, and three coffees. We paid 148.5€. I'd say that having tried other similar restaurants in the area, this on is among the best. But nothing that would be worth a detour I'd say. The sauces are too thick, the garnish the same for all courses: a roasted 1/4 small squash, two small carots, two flat peas, one half small potato, one half small purple potato.

“Absolutely lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Food was great! Staff is friendly and the price very reasonable (evening menu for 29 euros). Definitely worth a detour if you're around that area.

“Fantastic Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

By Far my favourite local restaurant - and one that never dissappoints .... whether it be a lazy midweek lunch, or a more formal weekend dinning experience. Naoko is an incredible chef with a gift for uniting typical french dishes with hint of her Japonese origins....a truelly fantastic fusion of tastes!

“Keep going back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We discovered Chez Miton when we were looking for a house in the Loir Valley. We were in Chahaignes to visit a house (which we tried unsuccessfully to buy, but that's another story) and had lunch at Chez Miton. What a pleasant surprise! We were totally unprepared for the quality of the food and the the general feel of the place.

We've since found our house in a nearby village, but we keep going back to Chez Miton, bringing friends who visit us to the place for a treat. And recently the prices have become more reasonable (they were a little on the high side) so it's now an even better proposition. The food is essentially French, but with an interesting Japanese/Asian twist courtesy of the chef, who is the Japanese co-owner together with her French husband. The local wines are also well represented and there are some good examples available by the glass or carafe, which is a big bonus for those of us who struggle with an entire bottle by ourselves....

We just wish there was a restaurant of this calibre in our village!

“Love chez Miton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

I have been there several times on the recommendation of a local LeMans artist who displays his paintings there and love the 100% french quaintness of the place, the beautiful bar and the cuisine. When I go to France, living in the US, I don't necessarily for the 5 star Michelin recommended places that are too elaborate sand pricy for me. Miton's is perfect, the epitome of the nice little french place you'd never find if not told about it as it totally out of the way. While there, explore the troglodytes , wine cellars and beautiful Berce forest with its century old oaks.
