We had lunch here with two of my friends from Paris and they were suitably impressed that we had found such an excellent restaurant in Chartres! It is located in a charming, ancient house, right opposite the Cathedral in the centre of Chartres. The food was perfectly prepared, really excellently presented and the service could not be faulted. They also... More

After arriving very late after traffic delay, staff were very accommodating. We had a delicious meal, the choices explained before ordering and we took the recommended wine which was perfect. We will go back.

This little restaurant looks unappealing from outside but is actually very charming inside. Consequently we recommend you do not just walk by. The menu de jour was 16 Euro and was good value for three courses all of which were of a high quality. Prawns, veal, chocolate ganache - what's not to like? We ordered a bottle of wine for... More

We visited this little restaurant last night based on the Trip Advisor reviews and enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is charming ( and it is true to say don't be put off by the outside of the building) and the service was perfect. While some people are keen to eat more quickly, we enjoy the feeling of not being rushed... More

A few nights ago, My four friends and I learnt about this wonderful restaurant through TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try since our hotel, Le Parvis, was literally steps away from Le Cloitre Gourmand. And we totally made the right decision! The exterior of the restaurant building was quite nondescript but the dining room was classy and not... More

Don't be put off by the exterior. Lovely dining area with view of cathedral in a room full of character. The food was excellent and the waiter knowledgeable and helpful recommending choices to accompany our food. Quiet at this time of year but only small so booking advised. I wish it was on my doorstep.

No problems getting a table in the small room (20-30) immediately facing the impressive north porch archway of the cathedral. Very helpful service, Flavoursome steaks in blue cheese sauce, local cheese board, good wine at a reasonable price, made a memorable evening meal. Like the cathedral, the room is partly through renovation. Hope to return to check both out once... More

Outside the restaurant, Cloitre Gourmand, my brother and I encountered a delightful girl of maybe twelve years old. She was just getting ready to ride off on her bicycle. We pointed at the restaurant and asked if it was any good. She enthusiastically encouraged us to try it. Was she ever right! I ordered a warm chèvre salad and a... More

Even though I am not very into churches and cathedrales, the notre dame in Chartres is impressive and very beautiful. Also worth a visit when it's already dark as the cathedrale is nicely illuminated.
