Although a little expensive, and requiring you to have bought a ticket to get into the Chateau first, this was a lovely way to spend the afternoon after touring the Chateau. There was a selection of menus and some reasonably priced wines from their own vineyard.

We stumbled across this classy place on our visit to the Château de Chenonceau. We didn't have reservations, but the professionally trained mâitre d'hôtel found us a lovely garden view table. Lunch set menu wasn't cheap, at 31 or 36 euros each, but the service and setting along with the quality of the food made it well worth it.

We booked for lunch soon after arriving at the chateau and were so glad we did. The food was simply wonderful - beautiful to look at and delicious. Portions were modest but perfect in the context of 3 or 4 courses. The desserts were outstanding! The service was equally memorable - polite, attentive and perfectly timed. The best meal of... More

I really enjoyed the castle and the grounds and realized I was hungry and that it was already past 1:30 pm and that it might be difficult to get a meal in the town. I looked over the cafeteria and didn't care for their special, etc. This restaurant was still serving and I figured "why not?" And got the €30... More

If you book the Jules Verne you don't have to pay for the Eiffel Tower, but if you book the Orangerie you have to buy your tickets for the Chenonceau Casttle. But the food and service in the restaurant were nevertheless good!

I went in with high hopes of a special meal. I ordered the French Onion Soup, thinking this would be a great place to have it in France for the first time. I must admit that Campbell's is better. The salad was unique and tasty. However, we ordered two scoops of chocolate ice cream for dessert. It took almost 30... More

We loved this boutique bed and breakfast hotel in the heart of Bruge. The lounge and breakfast rooms are superb with beautiful furniture and decor and open fires to add to the atmosphere . Situated right on the canal where the boats start the tours it really is in a fabulous location to tour this lovely city .

Beautifully furnished. Very pleasant place to dine. Would recommend you visit here when viewing the chateau. It's so peaceful. The area caters for conferences and large groups as well as couples. You can also sit outside on a nice day
