Description: We dreamed about it for a very long time: change frame without distorting the place and the soul of this created place 30 years ago to offer to our clientele a maximum of comfort and well-being ... .Pari successful! New decoration, based on pure materials such as wood, glass and metal bottom perfectly in the real decoration: the unique and impregnable panoramic view on the Loire! (PMR access and outer and internal wheelchairs) The creation of our second room allows at the moment d "to welcome groups and big one tables* (family meal, of work ...) while protecting the intimacy of the individual customers thanks to a window which can separate 2 dining rooms. Our living area of welcome(reception), conceived(designed) to take a glass(have a drink) while waiting for dinner guests will bring you one moment of relaxation. As for our new terrace, cut by the road and by the parking lot and moved forward on the Loire, she can only enchant you and share with you this unique(only) and magnificent view(sight). "L'EMBARCADERE " Restoring on the surface of the Loire ": forget one moment your stress and take advantage pleasantly and peacefully of the time(weather) which passes!

“Warm welcome and wonderful meal for tired non-French speaking visitors”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Our hosts at Le Clos Pasquier kindly made a dinner reservation at L'Embarcadere for our first night in Blois and we weren't disappointed. Despite our lack of French, we were welcomed and offered a lovely table overlooking the river. After a patient interpretation of the menu from the owner, we were delighted with our choices of local fish and a refreshing grapefruit dessert/glacé. A very reasonably priced meal with great service and ambience-we enjoyed it so much that we returned the following Monday night-a bonus, because many French restaurants are closed!

“Strange habit of the French?”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

The view on the river is splendid but a little smile with the service could do wonders. The food was not outstanding but very much ok, except: they put sugar on the french fries. No, it is not a strange habit of the French. "Sorry, mistake in the kitchen", was the only explanation and excuse we got.
