Food was delicious and service was charming. The best we ate in in Blois. Lovely outside terrace so I recommended you book that if weather permits. Central location.

We did not book but had no trouble getting a table as we arrived at about 7. We both ordered salads as it was so hot outside which sound a bit boring but were excellent. We shared a dessert of ice cream profiteroles which was plenty. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We dined here last night and had a wonderful meal. We didn't reserve and at 7:30, they could not seat up but did offer an 8:30mwhich we accepted. It was well worth the wait. We wondered around the neighborhood for a while and had a pre-dinner drink at a near-by outdoor bar. At the restuarant, we were seated outdoors and... More

After a considerable amount of time of walking around Blois searching, we decided on a little French restaurant with a patio. After that, we didn't expect much, but saw a menu outside with good options. We were not disappointed. The steak (we think flank or strip) was fantastic, perfectly medium rare, and juicy. The filet du bœuf, a special that... More

I thought I would be healthy tonight and have salad. But I was drawn to the one that had chicken, duck and fried potatoes, plus gravy! It was a proper tasty salad!

I visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Blois because it was SO good! Located in the centre of Blois, there is seating inside of out on the terrace and the place was packed with French people which is always a good sign in my view. The menu is varied and includes traditional French and European dishes but also... More

We've been dining here in the summer for many years and always enjoyed their menus, excellent quality food and generous portions. The service is personal and helpful. House red wine from local area is good.

Had a pleasant meal here - good portion size but the meal wasn't as exciting as we'd been led to believe it would be. Competent but not outstanding.
