“Very good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Not upscale or stuffy, casual and pleasant. Food was very good but not outstanding. Service was excellent. Overall, a very good value for the quality, location and service. A had a filet of local fish (sandre ?) which was excellent and my wife had entrecote & frites which was very good, but not quite excellent. The desserts were both outstanding...creme brulee and profiteroles. A good choice for a good meal at reasonable prices in the heart of Blois.

“I went on the advice of a local and wasn't disappointed”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Right on the main drag from the river into town. Big dining room and patio but maintained that village feel. Menu had a huge selection and reasonably priced. Food was good and served with smiles. All-in-all not the BEST restaurant I've ever been to, but I think if you're looking for a good meal, this is a sure thing.

“Pleasant food in a pleasant location”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

The restaurant was really laden with people, so we had to wait at the bar - but fortunately, some tables on the patio opened up within just a couple of minutes. the patio is nice, in a calm side street. I greatly enjoyed my escalopes de veau, and wine in the region is always amazing.

For us, service was as you would hope for. But we did see the waitress drop stuff on our neighbour twice, so when I was deliberating whether I would give a 3-star or a 4-star rating, I went with the 3... But don't let that deter you! If you want French cuisine in Blois, but you want to avoid an overload of (other) tourists, go to Poivre & Sel.
