We ate here on one of our 5 nights in Chinon and enjoyed it very much. The food was definitely Michelin 2 star quality albeit a little rich for our tastes but nevertheless a lovely evening with superb service from the lady proprietor.

Very dear even for the set menus but Michelin star quality - service and presentation first class. Get there early or better still book a table in advance as it is so popular.
If you like fancy food this is the best restaurant in town.

Perhaps my husband and I just visited on an off night, but our meal here did not live up to all of the great reviews. The food was just average and did not compare to our other amazing meals while traveling around France. The decor is not what you would expect in this lovely old town of Chinon, the lighting in particular is very bright, almost making you feel like you are in a diner.

We celebrated a birthday here. Our hotel, Hotel Diderot, made reservations and the chef surprised us with a birthday dessert.I am not sure I can even describe this piece of sugar art. It was a scroll made from sugar and almonds with a white chocolate "page" with greeting written on it in dark chocolate. Amazing! It was like something from a Food Network Challenge.
We are still taking about it 2 months later. The food was great but this birthday surprise, brought to our table by the chef himself was fantastic.
