We were lucky to get seats without a reservation, but the food was delicious! The kids tried and loved the escargot. One of our best meals in France!

Stopped for lunch after touring the castle. Recommended as a place to eat in our Rick Steeves’ book. Excellent duck with red sauce. My husband ordered the pork and thoroughly enjoyed it! Would go again!

My husband & I ate at this restaurant last night. We both ordered the rib eye. It was a very thin steak, chewy, gristly, tough & poor quality beef. Escargot was just ok. This was one of the more expensive meals we had in France....More
