A bit out of the center but nevertheless well worth the trip. The restaurant has a bit of an eclectic touch as far as decoration and tableware are concerned but the food we were served was absolutely excellent.

We enjoyed ravioli with foie gras, succulent beef and vacharin with strawberries. The service was impeccable and this turned out to be a very positive surprise.

Prices are also reasonable. We paid about 50 Euro pp for 3 courses and cheeses.

The hotel room was average but the bath was so large and deep I forgave the room for being small. We booked it as we'd heard about the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The view isn't brilliant as it is on a roundabout but we only had eyes for the food. The chateaubriand for two was one of the best I have ever had. The cheeseboard was a trolley full of cheeses and because I couldn't decide which dessert to choose it was suggested that I chose the dessert platter - miniature versions of the desserts - heaven! I would definitely recommend the restaurant and if you need somewhere to stay overnight as well it is only 15 minutes walk from the centre and it is very useful knowing there is parking available.

Fabulous way to spend our last night in the Loire. The service was impeccable and, although a little old fashioned, the setting was very elegant. The food was fantastic. We have done a lot of fine dining over the last couple of weeks and this was among the best. The chateaubriand for two was great. My first course of asparagus, morel mushrooms and a poached egg might sound simple and not worth the price, but it was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. When I return to the area I will definitely be back.

After visiting Blois castle and before heading to Chambord, we found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and had a wonderful surprise. The food was excellent, refined but modern, fresh ingredients and creative. The service was outstanding and the price was fare. We loved it!

This is a straight-up formal dining experience. Classic French cuisine in a classic French setting. The service was very on-point without being intrusive -- executed very well indeed. The food was much better than expected given our initial impressions though. It consisted of traditional ingredients and dishes, but still presented in a very modern way -- plenty of interesting things going on in each course. And it certainly was a delight to taste!

The downsides were: the setting is fairly uninspiring. It has floor to ceiling windows, so you have a lovely view out onto... a roundabout in suburban Blois. Thankfully there was enough pretty things on our plates to alleviate the need to look around. Also, desert was a slight let-down. It was tasty, but it felt like less effort had gone into it than the other courses -- more of a straightforward pudding than anything that made me say "wow".

A tip -- for us, they brought us the wine list only after we'd chosen what to eat. I've never seen this before but maybe it's some traditional French way, or something. It was so large it barely fitted on the table! (Perhaps that was the reason?) So don't embarrass yourself by thinking they've forgotten!
