Tuesday before Easter so there wasn't much open in Chinon. Stumbled across L'Oceanic as their web site had said they would be closed. Thankful they weren't as the food and service was excellent. I had the French version of 'Surf & Turf' which is far superior - Sea Bass, Scallops and Fillet steak with Foie Gras.
Will definitely be back next time we visit Chinon

After a not so warm reception from the owner/chef(?), we had a great dinner. The place is beautifully decorated. We only had seafood and everything was very good. The cheese table was amazing. Only the deserts were just OK. Overall and excellent 3 hour experience, that I strongly recommend.

Each of our party of four really enjoyed this restaurant. My son had melt in the mouth lobster. My husband had duck which he thought beautiful and so on. The food was beautifully presented all round. The decor was very modern but well done. The service was pleasant and they booked us a taxi at the end of the evening. Full of bonhomie. We loved it.

Oceanic was one of our highlight meals, the seafood was fresh and beautiful prepared. The proportions were perfect, the fresh ingredients were beautifully blended and the service was wonderful. One of the young servers thoroughly impressed us when our french let us down, he sought out the english word from his colleagues - much more than we deserved! The chef came out to visit after our dinner and again, we worked through our limited french to thank him for a wonderful meal - would go back if I could!

The fresh food was a welcome treat after a few too many heavy meals.
