They care about their food and are interested in their customers. We were recommended it by our hotel and it was worth the walk to find it. Intimate feeling restaurant and good local wines. Do book - we saw many people being turned away when they tried to just turn up

Great tasting set menu for lunch, limited choices (two per course) but everything tasted great and only 19 Euros each. So busy it may be wise to book

Thus small restaurant is well worth a visit. Choose your dishes carefully though. Stewing beef should not be offered at different rates of cooking. It all needs to be well done. The result was that this dish was tough. That said the other dishes we had were excellent. Particularly the gazpacho starter. Bravo! Good price for a good meal.

I had a delicious dinner with my family in this tiny,cosy and original restaurant, located in a small street in Blois. The food was homemade and delicious; and the owner made everything possible to have us feel welcome and satisfied. You have to reserve in advance as the restaurant is small and apparently always full. I would be happy to... More

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
