We arrived on a Sunday Evening and to our luck found Kez open and enjoyed a 3 course meal with local wine for an incredible price. We are on a limited budget and while would have loved to have visited many other restaurants in the area, due to price and taste we visited at least 3 times always having something... More

This small restaurant is located in a street off the main square and consequently offers better value for money. The €18.50 menu offers three or four choices for each course. We had the smoked salmon to start (a generous portion) and the seafood vol au vent (which my husband said would be hard to beat) followed by sliced duck, with... More

Our second night we decided to give another place a go. It is good, with helpful staff, but probably not quite as good as L'Ardoise, but nor is it as expensive. Also menu's are in English and not as adventurous so possibly better for families or fussy eaters. Food was very good still.

We visited the beautiful town of Chinon foir a few hours and meandered up the small pretty streets. We looked at the slightly overpriced more pretentious restauarants around the squares and my fiancee said lets have another look at that little one we passed. What a great move. Despite being towqards the back end of lunchtime and as their other... More

Friends who live in Chinon invited me to dinner at KEZ - a place I didn't know about at all. What a great find. The food was quite good and at a very reasonable price. I will definitely go back. KEZ are the first letters of the names of the owners. It is small and friendly - and English speaking.

Good food with menu of the day options or A La Carte at reasonable prices. Wine of the Month from good local vineyards. Reliable restaurant run by very courteous friendly owner who works hard. Some reviewers have said the service is slow, but one is never rushed out of the restaurant for another sitting as in UK. Always a pleasant... More

Our family of 4 popped in for dinner after a day of walking around Chinon and the Fortress. The restaurant was not very busy, maybe 4 tables. We had none of the delays some others have mentioned. The front of house guy was attentive, impeccably polite and patient with our "Frenglish". He provided us with a menu with options in... More

We looked at all the top 15. The best were crazy expensive. Kez has 13 &18 euro menu. We went with the18€ and every dish was good. My wife enjoyed the pate, the onion soup was just right. Chicken and duck were excellent and good size serving. Great creme Brule and cheese plate. All good portions. Reasonable wine too .... More

Came here on a recommendation of a friend and was pleasantly surprised, so much so that we returned twice more. Very good croque madam(s) créme brûlée and salads. Having read other reviews about slow service, would say this is true, but is not a reflection on the quality of the food. We were on holiday after all and if we... More
