Took the family to dinner here as a birthday dinner. The food was wonderful (hare and partridge recommended), and the service was friendly and helpful. The desserts were also fantastic, with the chocolate sponge and creme brulee trilogy particularly good.

We dined here on two consecutive evenings. Warm welcome. Booking essential because the restaurant is popular for good reason. The two course menu was a little more expensive than other places but we shared the generous starter and dessert. Delicious extras too. Tables are close...More

Booking is advisable. We did our usual research on Trip Advisor before booking this Restaurant, and like many others we were not disappointed. The usual choice of set menus and exciting dishes on all of the menus. Front of house was good BUT the food...More

There is an "old section" of Blois, near the Chateau, and Les Banquettes Rouges is in this quarter on rue des 3 Marchands. I stopped in for lunch while roaming around Blois. I found the food to be very very good and the prices exceptional....More

A popular restaurant but do not visit on spec. Lovely setting is fully booked Wednesday late October. So booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Maybe next time we will be lucky.
