Yes the service is slow but we thought that appropriate for this style of restaurant. The food was incredible...my only complaint was that the batter on one dish was slightly too oily and not light like it should be. We had a 10 year old with us and he choices were lovely and he also got offered the aperitifs tasters that we were. That was a nice touch. The cheese choices are spectacular and I enjoyed the suggested Pre dinner sparkling rose. We intended to eat the Formula but were beaten after a few courses so I can't comment on deserts except to say that those I saw served were presented beautifully. This is not a cheap place but ti delivered. If we were in Chinon again we would certainly revisit for a treat night out.

The food was great, my fiance took a 4 courses meal that included: oysters, veriaty of sea food (Boyabez) , plate of fromages (you choose what you want from a large plate of different cheese) and a dessert of ice cream with strowberries and whipped cream. Since I don't eat any sea food, the chef has prepared a special plate for me of chicken and pasta. There was also a wide selection of good wines. The food was very well prepared, if we're in the area again we shell definately return to L'Oceanic!

Young staff who didn't really know what they were doing and we didn't get a feeling of being looked after. Food good

We were recommended this restaurant by our Hotel. It exceeded our expectation in every way. Food, service and ambiance was excellent. We would highly recommend this to anyone coming Chinon. It's busy so booking is essential. Every course was exceptional. A highlight of our trip!

This resturant was highly recommended by our hotel owner. Not one of the highlights of our trip. We decided upon the fixed price menu, and overall found the food fair at best and the wait staff (and particularly the owner/hostess) incredibly prickly, despite the attempt at ordering french. I wouldn't recommend unless you would like to spend a lot of money on an only "ok" meal and feel like you're intruding on the owner/hostess' time that evening. Try another option in Chinon.
