We had lunch a fantastic lunch here today. The staff were welcoming and tolerant of our poor French.....though very encouraging that we try (our children learn French at school so we like them to practice as much as possible). The food was a treat - simple but extremely tasty. So good to get a few vegetables as well! The decor is cosy and fascinating at the same time. Wondering whether it would be wrong to head back for dinner tonight???

Right across from the Chartres cathedral is this charming little restaurant. It is small and cozy on the inside. The owners are friendly and nice.
My brother ordered a hot chocolate which came in a cute mug in the shape of a cat. The mug was full of steamed milk. The chocolate was solid on a stick, and you put the chocolate in the milk to make the hot chocolate. We had never had hot chocolate like that, and it was delicious. They sell the special chocolate bars for the hot chocolate separately, so you can take one with you.
My brother and I had different bowls of stew - big bowls, very filling and very good.
I recommend this place. I will definitely go here again if ever in Chartres again.

We were going to try a different restaurant but it was full. Le Pichet 3 is nearby and seems interesting enough. They have onion soup, cassoulet, souris d'agneau, salads, etc. Very filling. Service was good and friendly. The price was average at about 25 euros per person including drinks.

Best thing is it is so close to the Cathedral. And it is also a little boutique selling small jewelry, confiture, books.

This is a very cute restaurant in Chartres, near the Cathedral. Lamb stew and Beef Bourguignon were delicious, served in a crockery bowl with good bread to soak up the sauces. Very friendly, reasonably priced, and good food.

This was a great place to eat, the owners are extremely friendly and the food was excellent and fresh. It is quite small and cozy inside. Like I said the food was delicious and very reasonable. The beef bourguignon was very flavorful and melt in you mouth. Should be rated highe than 8.
