Over the years we have spent long weekends in Chinon and Les Annees 30 consistently has provided good food at reasonable prices. This year was no exception and was a great way to start to our holiday. One tip eat in the courtyard if its hot as whilst the indoor part of the restaurant is lovely it can get too warm if its full.

whilst on holiday in Chinon we stopped in to see if there was a chance of a table. The Madame found us a late table outside as they were full inside. Things took time to get going but we were happy to be patient as they had squeezed us in.
Whilst we have a average level of French they kindly produced a set of English menus which helped as the vocabulary of fine French cooking terms was beyond me. We were allowed though to order in French, which made us strangely happy!
As other reviews note the food is aiming for michelin style and standard. The fish was all well cooked, the sauces of high quality and the cheese board suitably interesting. The wines were well priced at around 2.5 times retail, which was reasonable compared to the uk. The wines we had were well chosen and went down well. We ate from some of the fixed price menus and came away at around 50 Euros per head, well fed, and very content.
highly recommend for a special meal.

On a week long stay in Chinon, we ate at Les Annees twice. Both times the food and the experience was very good. It seems to be essential to book. They have various set menus as well as al la carte. We always try to eat things its tricky to find at a reasonable price in England, so the second time we dined here, which was the night before we were leaving, I had snails with goat cheese ice cream and my partner enjoyed toasted fois gras. We both cleaned our plates. We then both had veal sweetbreads as the main course, which were, to be honest, one of the tastiest meals we had had anywhere, ever. I finished the meal with the cheese course and a 'Mojito' sorbet dessert. The decor in the restaurant was tasteful and calm, the staff were efficient and the female patron was friendly and helpful. Its not cheap, but, compared to UK/London prices, its a bargain. Its what we came to France for and would dine here again without hesitation.

This charming restaurant is set in an old 16th century building. The quality of the food is excellent and the place not ostentatious. Excellent value for the refinement you will enjoy, with quality local wines you will not find outside of Chinon.
