This is an excellent restaurant in the perfect location. The proprietor is a lovely lady, who really puts her heart and soul into the place. Very relaxed and homey with great food.

After wandering round we were struggling to decide where to eat but were drawn to this place and were glad we did. The food was delicious though service was a little slow at times due to the place being full, but the staff acknowledged this and apologised. perfect location sat outside the cathedral so we were able to watch the light show from our table. The interior of the building, and the toilet were quirky and full of character.

The staff were very offhand with us because we did not want to eat a meal. Even though we ordered three cocktails that were not cheap. Then when we later asked for the menus they dropped them on our table and didn't come back to take our order. They were very charming to the other customers so I can understand the positive reviews, however I think courteous service should extend to all customers. We moved on to L'estocade by the canal and had an excellent meal with very pleasant service.

Solid quality food, home-cooked fashion. Good price for Chartres and terrific location right outside the cathedral.

In premium tourist sites, the food is usually very expensive and tastes terrible. But it is just the opposite at the Parvis. We had the "pintade a la normande" (guinea fowl normandy style) and the "joue du boeuf" (beef cheek) and they were both delicious. The veggies coming with them were also great. For dessert, we had the "pain perdu" and an ice cream (vanilla, pistachio, with macarons and chantilly), and they were both great. The restaurant has outdoor seating just underneath the Chartres cathedral, and the part indoors is also homey and clean. The bathroom is by the way really nice and design! The price is reasonable (around 16 to 18 euros a meal) and common in French restaurants nowadays. Parking was not easy, but if you are parked underground to go to the cathedral, you can just go a few steps further and be at the restaurant. It seems like the restaurant has also a few rooms as a hotel, and they looked nice on the video system but it doesn't seem like there is an elevator to get to the rooms.

The Chartres cathedral has been half restored and is awesome. The entrance is free and you can compare what has been restored with the rest. Best pictures are taken away from the cathedral behind the patches of garden on the front yard!
