Le St Hilaire is small and cozy and proposed good and tasty food. Snail on a bed of artichoke was fantastic followed by ris de veau nicely pan fried and finished with heavenly strawberry pie. Service was good and friendly, one waitress in particular was very smiley during the whole visit making us welcome.will be back soon.

We used to go to this restaurant fifteen and more years ago - and thought it superb. It has changed hands and is different but the same. The welcome and presentation is friendly. The menu adventurous and inviting - but with many of the values of the former owners. A very well-chosen wine list - with excellent bottles at reasonable... More

Whenever you found yourself in Chartres, there is no other restaurant than Le Saint Hilaire.. It is simply the best. This restaurant deserve a Michellin star. The food is so much better than some of the Michellin star restaurants in Paris. It was definitely an outstanding meal.

Easy to find...9mn away from the Cathedrale, through a lovely stroll down narrow streets bordered by old homes. Neighboured by a joint for young adults (smoking the same that day at lunch time) le St Hilaire proposed good and tasty food, including all the dishes in kid's portion. Small and cozy. We were on the upper floor and had a... More

Inevitably, Chartres with its great Cathedral is a magnet for tourists & therefore for tourist traps. The St Hilaire is a little out of the way of the main restaurant streets, but it's worth seeking it out. This is cuisine raffinée, well presented, with an attractive setting & a welcome & service to match.

We had the Business Lunch, which was fantastic value for money. €19 per person for an entree & plat, or plat & dessert. We both had an entree and plat, and they were full sized portions. The quality was fantastic, and presentation attractive. Service was extremely attentive, and they apologized that they did not speak much English. Not that it... More

A small restaurant tucked away in a side street just a little away from the maiin tourist spots, nevertheless it is well worth going a little out of your way to find it. The welcome is warm, the service impeccable and the quality of the food first class. Well worth a visit.

Le Saint Hilaire provided a fantastic gastronomic experience, with a wonderful arrange of French and local products and their set menus that give no surprises.

We ate here when stopping over on the way north to the ferry ports. The location is a little obscure at least from where we were staying on the far side of the Cathedral but is just off the recommended route around the old city, so not too hard to find. And it gave us the bonus of seeing much... More

I had been there before back in February - it was a great experience back then - so when my parents came to town we went here - unfortunately the place had really gone down hill - the food was badely cooked and my mother got sick during the night and the day after as well.
