I must admit I was rather underwhelmed this time around. The place is looking a little tired and the shine has rather left it. The food was just fine too but again lacked a coherence on the plate - the different elements were okay but the dishes did not seem to come together for me. I don't think it was... More

I am not sure why I can't be a little more positive about Les Banquettes Rouge, but though the food was good it just didn't combine all of the parts together that make a great restaurant. I think that the problem is that its producing food that attempting to be different, when simple but great food would suit the atmosphere.... More

A fairly small restaurant, good value and great food. The menu attracted as, as well as the chalkboard in front which announced "come in, we even speak English!". They did not disappoint. A great place.

We had lunch at Les Banquettes Rouges and were very happy with both service and quality of the food. We hadn't reserved a table and the place was pretty full, but the very efficient lady in charge prepared us a table for 3 and we settled down to a delicious 3 course lunch for 17,50 Euros. Very impressed by the... More

Arrived at the restaurant at 7:50 pm for dinner, was no one inside, thought of leaving as I thought it is not a good restaurant (my normal judgement). Went in on insistence of my local colleague and I would not repent. Restaurant was full at 20:10 and we were lucking to have booked before. We chose a 3 course meal.... More

Interesting food, some imagination shown. Fixed price menu (2 or more courses) offered only - which is fine if that suits you. Service was efficient rather than especially friendly.

Booked a table at Les Banquettes Rouges in advance of our holiday due to all the amazing reviews.We arrived in Blois earlier than expected, and contacted the restaurant to see if we could change our table for one a half hour earlier, and the proprietor kindly said we could. The restaurant is in one of the oldest streets in Blois,narrow... More
