“something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Wonderful restaurant. Pricey. But a great experience. Top flight food and wine. Seating inside is just beautiful. In the summer you can sit outside amongst the vines and on certain evening have dinner, with live jazz being played. We go there from time to time for special occasions. Just heavenly. Essential to book.

“Beautiful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Today we have had a delicious meal in an amazing setting - a true French experience. The menu was varied and original and cooked perfectly with fresh and delicious product. The deco set the scene for an exciting day, a truly memorable experience. Chef Phillippe and wife, Carol gave excellent service sharing their journey with us. We will certainly look forward to visiting L'Auberge de Jable again in the near future. Well worth our time and money.

“A hidden gem but worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I had dinner at l'auberge de Jable with a Butterfield and Robinson bike trip. He first gave us all a short cooking lesson, then prepared a fantastic meal. Chef Philippe also spent time in the United States, so his English is excellent. I don't know how many English speakers would be in the Loire region, but if you are, absolutely visit the restaurant. Actually, restaurant is not quite the right name. It is the home of the Chef and his wife, Carol, and it feels more like a dinner at a friends house than a restaurant. Without B&R biking, I would never have found l'Auberge de Jable, but perhaps others will read this review. You won't be disappointed. If the Chef comes out to visit, make sure to talk to him about his food, his art (on display everywhere in the house) and his photography. He is very "sympa", "warm and friendly" in English, and you will enjoy his company as well as the scrumptious food.
