Good stop for lunch on biking trip. Nice cafe menu with typical plat de jour. Exceptional gizzard salad. Perhaps a little pricey, but you are paying for good venue; €40 for two large salads, two coffees, glass of rosé and large bottle of water. Service...okay.More

Very pleasant. Food twice as good and half the price of the same meal in Paris. Ok, I'm exaggerating a little, but not much.

Clean place straight across from the castle. Friendly but forgetful service. Excessively priced for what is served. Food is not bad but not good or great. Not worth the price

Situated opposite the Chateau. A good restaurant serving French cuisine. The waiters are generally very friendly and engaging- the owner less so. However, overall if you find yourself in Maintenon I recommend this restaurant over the others in the town.

This was our second lunch here. Service was superb, courteous but so friendly, with excellent timing in providing beautifully cooked and presented meals for our party of three. You are unable to pre book for the Sunday lunch, so do go early. We arrived at...twelve thirty, to ensure a table. The restaurant is opposite a small free carpark which sits in front of a small church and Chateau Maintenon, the home of one of Louis XIV much favoured mistresses. I fully recommend that you visit the Chateau, with its enchanting vista's after or before a visit to Le Soleil, to make your day a special one! Steeped in history and good French cuisine!More

This is a lovely restaurant where we were well attended by the owner himself. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Just across the street from the Château de Maintenon.

We had a fantastic experience at The Brasserie du Soleil. Classic french menu with high quality ingredients, friendly staff and gorgeous home made desserts. We will definitely go back.
