We had a two course menu du jour - Except I am allergic to eggs and couldn't have the desserts offered, so they substituted a mixture... More

This is a very nice example of a French restaurant serving some traditional dishes. The staff were friendly and our waiter spoke good English. The food was well cooked and presented and, of course, I had to have the tarte tatin, which was very nice indeed. The place was very clean and had a speciality in chicken cooked on a... More

We have visited many times and are never disappointed. A proper brasserie with proper service. Quality food and a buzzy atmosphere. The service is always very efficient and professional. Definitely recommend it. Can be a little pricey if you go a la carte.

A good restaurant in the centre of Chatellerault recommended to us by the proprietor of our B&B. The fixed price menus were reasonably priced, the portions were generous and the dishes were well cooked and showed some inventive touches. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly.

A very uncomplicated regional French restaurant, popular with local business people and families; with a traditional menu, specialising in steak and grills. The service is friendly and efficient, the quality of the food well above average.

My favourite restaurant in the Vienne region. I first discovered La Ferme Saint-Jacques in 2005 and have returned on most of my visits to this part of France. Not only is the food exceptionally good and excellent value for money, but the staff are professional and welcoming, without being stuffy or casual. The decor and ambience are more bistro style...

we had diner here recently. We choose the 50 Euro shared steak - unbelievable. Beautifully cooked, sliced and served on two plates with accompaniments. Desert was just as good - I've never had a soufflé so good. Service A1

We ate at this restaurant on advice of our B&B Chateau de la Plante. Easy to find in the city center, high quality food for a reasonable price. Service was ok.
