“Stuck in the back and just wanted a nice salad”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Chinon is a lovely town and i am sure this restaurant is normally good but I was very disappointed with my visit there. We had not booked so understandble that we could not eat on the nice 'terrasse' but we were walked through an almost empty restaurant to a poky courtyard where the owners friends were having some sort of noisy party that mercifully only lasted an hour. In the courtyard we were almost under a modern steel staircase to the hotel rooms and near to a broken glass sign and an industrial type cleaner that had both been stuck there. You rarely get poor food in France in my experience and the Melon and Omelette starters were nice. Waits between waitress visits were longer than normal - even for France. I wanted a salad but what I got was a were bits of confit duck(with small shards of bone) on little piles of sweet potato mash with a few bits of salad on the side.
As we left I noticed plenty of free tables in the restaurant - why could we have not gone in there and not next to a large group of people smoking and drinking- I know I should have asked to move....

“Lovely Food & Staff... beware the Cognac!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had a lovely meal here, the staff were friendly and very attentive. The set menu we had was good value and more than adequate! We sat inside, which turned out to be a great option as the evening turned cold very quickly. We really enjoyed our evening, topping off with a cognac which tainted the evening as it was quite expensive at 12 euros!

“Not as expected”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Food as good, but compared to what we had on the rest of the holiday disappointing for the price, and wine was cheaper by the glass??

“Good service and good value”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Ate here on a Monday evening as it was one of the very few restaurants to be open on Monday. Had been here before 6 years ago.
Good value set menus and choice of indoor/outdoor tables, which is always good. very clean and sharp décor, staff were very obliging.
represents good value, but not the same quality as L`anee 30, which is really top notch, but a little more expensive. A `steady/safe` restaurant
