Good food at a good price. We enjoyed a lovely local wine and chose the set menu which was delicious and good value. Nice ambience too.

When in Chenonceaux, Le Relais is the best dining choice. We had two dinners indoors and one late lunch on the terrace. We were on vacation and enjoyed the casual, friendly service at Le Relais. They care about the food and you. I agree with other reviews that at times the service was unusually slow - always a problem especially in a small town to figure out the equation of number of servers to reservations...and then another 20 or more guests show up most likely all at the same hour for dinner. We just relaxed...had some wine...enjoyed the moment and discovered a charming local restaurant with well-prepared classic French cuisine. If you are there in the summer hopefully you will have a perfect summer night to enjoy dining on the terrace. Reserve - if you want to dine indoors in the front room off the street and certainly for the terrace. Three course menu about 22€ or a la carte.

The food was ok, but the service was very slow. It took over half an hour for them to take our order after we had been served our aperitif. We appreciate, as the notice on the wall says, that good cooking cannot be hurried, but certainly on that night customer service did not seem a priority.

Reasonably priced 3 course menu at 19 Euros with a variety of dishes to choose from; the salade classique as a starter and the panna cotta with strawberry and citronelle were especially delicious. Despite our initial suspicion that the restaurant would be catering more for tourists and those staying for only one night in the hotel (like us), the food proved to be excellent with efficient and friendly service. The local sauvignon blanc was exquisite although a bit expensive.
The only small criticism would be that not enough time was allowed between courses;we have grown accustomed to the usually more relaxed way of dining in France and prefer to have coffee after the dessert and not with it!
If eating there again, we would make sure we booked early in order to get a table in the main restaurant rather than what seemed to be the overspill restaurant at the back.
Charming courtyard dining is also possible for warmer evenings.

Book terrace it is very nice- chose the standard cheapest menu and went with all the dishes of the day. The food was tasty though the main course was a bit small for a grown man. The wine was reasonably priced and the service was good-interestingly it still came to about €70 for two which I thought was a little expensive. However we had a lovely evening and a lovely meal.
