Description: The restaurant l'Orangerie du Chateau is opposite the fairy tale Chateau de Blois overlooking the beautiful facade of the castle. The orangery was built at the end of the 15th century during the reign of Louis XVII and Anne of Brittany and was surrounded by beautiful gardens. The orangery has become a fine dining restaurant offering a variety of menus priced from 39 to 85 euros per person as well as some of the finest French wines available. For tea and coffee lovers the restaurant also prides itself on the wide selection available. The menus are made up of traditional French dishes cooked and served to the very highest of standards and that change with the seasons.

We were lucky that it was a sunny day. We had dinner and we ate outside. it was magic. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the aperitif and the wines... very well recommended and i would go there again. It is not cheap, even expensive, but worth every penny

We sat outside here and it was such a spectacular setting, let alone the food that was to come! The staff were so lovely and they were training a 12 year old boy to be a waiter and he was so professional. Everything is in French (obviously) so it doesn't pander to tourists and even though we weren't sure always what we were ordering, what we had was divine! We chose the 39 euro menu which is about 4-5 courses and the portion sizes were perfect. We were full when we left but not horribly so. I think this is well worth a special treat if you are in Blois.

This was a great enjoyable moment.
Luckily weather was super and we had dinner on the terrace, with a splendid view on the castle.
Nice and well balanced menu. Portion size are correct and great quality.
Very friendly service.
Despite cheese was not included in the menu, we were not charged for it.
This restaurant is really worth the money you spend.

Food was amazing, if you eat there try the souffle for desert - but leave room for it its light and fluffy but comes with about 5 other "amuse bouche" as it were.
Fixed price menues are varied and provide a good range of prices with the most expensive for 5 courses including 2 lobster courses at about €80 Euros a head.
The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.
Well worth at least one meal there during a visit to the area

We just had dinner as part of a group
Pre booked therefore expected
They had 2 staff and a 14 year old looking after forty people!!!!
No wine was offered till 45 min AFTER arrival
We had to serve ourselves water to avoid thirst
This was after we started eating our first course!!!!!!
They served us a hot bottle of champagne and were unhappy that we refused to pay for it
This is a disappointment of a restuarant
Over rated
