Food and service absolutely superb. Chateaubriand perfectly cooked and served with delicious creamy dauphinois potatoes. Dos de Cabillaud also to be recommended. Great cheese selection. Definitely come back again.

This resturant is very close to our hotel situated on the island in the middle of the Loire. It is only open for a couple of hours in the evening so best to arrive early so you aren't rushed in you're eating, also book in advance which can be done through trip advisor. The service and the meals are a... More

We have eaten here before and glad to have returned to try it again. We dined outside on a beautiful, warm night. The service was excellent and the food beautifully prepared - my fish was excellent as was my husband's steak, following a beautiful foie gras entree. The only problem with the dessert was we could have eaten more!! A... More

Ate here while over-nighting at the nearby Ibis hotel. Had a enjoyable, reasonably priced meal from a menu with plenty of options. Ate on the terrace. Service was good, as is the wine list. In spite of its rather unlikely location on an apparently residential street this was a good choice.

If I want to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a relaxing lunch I can always trust the Reine de Sicile to deliver quality food, beautifully presented with excellent service. A good wine list and a menu which changes with the seasons.

The location of this restaurant is rather unlikely but it was worth the effort to find it. Hidden in the back streets, it has a lovely terrace and a very pleasant couple who ensured that we had a first class dining experience..The food was first class and the cheese board was one of the best I have seen. The food... More

The people who run this restaurant know what they're about, but they are tired of us. The small restaurant was full of English TripAdvisor readers and I think it is a case of the Emperors new clothes: they forget the bread, forget the water, forget to take our order, but remember to charge €155 for a dreadful steak, a small...

We were a group of 11 travelling through La Loire valley. This restaurant was perfect for our requirements as it had simple to understand set menus with a good choice. We all enjoyed our meals of typical French food, including the popular cheese board to finish. The hosts were very generous with the digestif and we were suitably generous with... More

We made reservations based on recommendations of friends. The service is a bit more formal than average. We did not order entrées and went right to the main course dishes. They were both very well presented and savory. One was the fish of the day and the other a lamb dish. We enjoyed both and also shared a green salad.... More
