After a torrid journey which included driving from Oxford via London, the Tunnel and Paris in pretty foul weather, we were delighted with this restaurant. So happy to be back in France enjoying simple tasty lovingly prepared and presented food and wine. Merci boucoup.

This place was recommended by the DK travel book. We went after visiting The Chaumont sur Loire garden festival nearby. The Menu du Jour was Hummus w Courgette galettes, Carpaccio of Beef and Strawberry soup for dessert - all for Euro14.50. It was delicious !...More

Such potential! Beautiful location, everything is so promising. The food is awful. Poulet Fermier was a boiled chicken wing with a bit of white chicken. Two of my close friends live in V. and hang their heads in shame at the poor show this is.

Simply prepared fresh food with a Mediterranean accent, and good local wine, make this a great spot for lunch, especially outdoors by the river. It is just slightly out of the way, but not far from many of the sights and attractions in the Loire...More
