We lunched here during our stay in Chatellerault and ate from the 'Formule' menu, on which there is a good but not over-extensive selection. The service was excellent (English was spoken if required) and the food was very good. Don't expect burgers and pizzas like in many French restaurants these days but well-cooked, tasty and authentic French food. Their descriptions... More

It was our first time in Châtellerault and we chose La Gourmandine purely by chance. We were not disappointed in our choice. The exterior of the hotel/restaurant is quite impressive, as are the public rooms, with lots of beautiful plaster mouldings on the walls and ceilings. However, I disliked the style of the interior decorations and would have preferred it... More

Over the years, we have tried several places to break our journey from Calais to Arcachon, and the name of this hotel attracted us last year. Unfortunately, although the hotel is open on Sundays, the restaurant isn't (and the only options in the town centre on a Sunday night are a couple of Creperies and a Pizzeria) so we tried... More

Excellent place for a stopover en route for the Dordogne. Beautiful house and gardens with internal decoration a clever fusion of the classic and modern. A hotel of great elegance! The dinner was superb, with several freebies between courses, and very reasonably priced. No hesitation in recommending.

The ingredients were redundant, the seasoning was not perfect, i had fish, it was well cooked, but the sauce was not very tasty, a disappointment, and without forgetting that its overpriced

This is a delight place, in an excellent setting, a haven in the middle of Chatellerault, a busy town some 30 kilometres north of Poitiers. The beautiful house has several rooms and a very pretty garden for outdoor dining. The welcome and service is of the very best, the food is of good quality, albeit with the occasional disappointment, some... More

There's a lot I love and hate about French cuisine and it's all here. Fabulous quality local ingredients cooked beautifully. Wild boar, local goats cheeses, fantastic wines and then on the down side, those tiny pre-starters and in-between course nibbles that are unnecessary, slimy and foaming. The whole La Gourmandine experience is fantastic but I can't give it five stars... More

Trying to find a good restaurant on a Monday can be difficult, but advised La Gourmandine did a good basic menu on a Monday, we found far more than expected. The food was superb, reasonably priced and service attentive but not excessive.
