Such a disappointment. Despite outward appearances suggesting the new owners have kept things just as they were, eg menu, it is not the same. Tables are not dressed with linen; napkins not starched; glasses not gleaming But the saddest thing of all is the food. My big chèvre salad (from Le carte) was five very thin, small pieces of chèvre... More

Visited before visit to Chateau and after reading review on Tripadvisor. We turned up at lunch time with 2 teenage boys and were taken through to the delightful sunny shaded courtyard at the back. Most other tables were occupied by business types. Waiting staff explained menu options clearly and we all opted for the plat du jour set menu or... More

I have only eaten in here once, at lunchtime. It was very busy, which is a good sign. The Plat Du Jour sounded good but unfortunately they had sold out as the lunchtime trade starts early in France, however, the waitress said we could chose anything we would like from the menu, whether or not it was more expensive. We... More

Great menu, fantastic fresh food, great garden and dining area. Fantastic service. Garden is ideal for a summers evening. All local food. Truly lovely!

I’ve reviewed Pinky before, but the restaurant has upped its game of late and I thought it reasonable to register an updated opinion. First off, what I’d really like to be able to do is give a four-and-a-half out of five, but I can’t, so I’m going to stick with a four. The improvement is marked, but it could be... More

We've visited Pinky a number of times. This is a favoured lunchtime haunt of office workers in Fonteny-le-Comte and the menu reflects this. The food is no-nonsense French staples: steaks, chicken served with cream & mushroom sauce, confit leg of duck, etc. Desserts include homemade tarts as well as icecreams, ile flotant and chocolate mousse. The fixed menu options are... More
