Good food, excellent place in a sunny day, terrific localization, near everything that matters in Chartres. I did the reservation 2 days before, and the manager was kind enough to call me to ask if we prefer outside tables. I asked about menu for kids, and he was very kind in preparing pasta to 8 kids (we were a big group), out of the fix (and excellent) menu for saturdays. We loved it!

We had a very pleasant evening at L'Escalier in the old town (1 Rue du Bourg). It's about a 5 min. walk from the cathedral and it's open on Sunday when a lot of places are not. And it's very nice sitting in the squarelike area just across from the restaurant.

The menu offers various fixed price dinners (with about 3 choices within each fixed priced) and ala carte at reasonable prices. The choices were varied and the four of us each enjoyed the food. It was fresh, well prepared and presented. Pascal (owner/manager) was so pleasant when I wanted a different first course on a fixed price he obliged with no extra cost.

The service was good, the food delicious and the atmosphere casual and relaxed.

The 19euro menu was chosen by me and the a'la carte by my wife. There was no mention of the ratatouille being unavailable and my wife chose the roast chicken. It turned out to be a fried chicken leg with chips for 12euro! We should both have had ratatouille or at least been offered an alternative such as a salad. When I asked about this I was told that they had run out and that was it ! Having been in the trade myself for many years I was more than annoyed with this total lack of consideration for the product and the customer. When I asked for more bread I received a 'huff' from the waiter. With wine the bill came to almost 60euro after a modest reduction for my dissatisfaction. We had another experience the previous night elsewhere so I'm now wondering if McDonalds or a good Chinese do have their place in France. I feel that those pioneering French chefs would have been horrified at today’s trade. Having said this we did enjoy the starters and deserts although we waited 40mins for the desert.
