Early season evening meal during stay in Chinon. Good meal, nice wine, great service and friendly enough to allow a couple of small dogs to sit quietly under the table. Thoroughly recommended.

Having been to Chinon many times we are more than happy to have a coffee here, they don't have a great range of cakes, but the coffee is fine. Great place to sit and watch everything going on around you. I cannot give a review...More
