My husband and I asked for a recommendation at the elegant hotel we stayed at in the Loire Valley. The hotel we were at had a Michelin two star restaurant on site, but we much prefer less formal, more intimate (and less expensive!) meals when...More

The middle of January is not the best time to visit the Loire and the restaurant was understandably quite empty. The welcome was warm despite the freezing weather outside. The choices of main course were all fussy and none would have been fully freshly prepared,...More

A repeat visit, this time at lunch. Well worth it, and certainly in comparison with the menu Formule on offer at the myriad bistros close to the entrance to the chateau. First of all, a gracious amuse-bouche of trout mousse over smoked salmon, then a...More

The slightly old fashioned dining room is pleasant enough especially if you have a table next to a window overlooking the terrace garden. The set menu s are slightly more expensive than other local restaurants we tried but overall good value. All our dishes were...More

During two days tpuring the chateaux, we returned here twice for lunch. The staff is very warm and welcoming: formal without being stuffy. The quality/ value ratio of the prix-fixe luncheon menu is fantastic, and the restaurant offers a wide variety of the local wines...More
