Description: Since nearly one century, the restaurant La Gerbe d'Or is a place of familiar appointment for lots of Lochois. The "Tuffeau" breathes the perfumes of the seasons, the large fireplace-dreams of the coloured scents of the aromas, with sweet and savoury spices, and the porch is curved to pay homage to this place where cooking becomes gastronomy.

It was a rainy Saturday Night in October. Construction on the street outside almost hid the doorway but the warmth of the dining rooms and the welcome of the staff pushed memories of the rain away. There were many families, couples, and groups enjoying the very reasonably priced menus. We shared all the courses, and came away quite satisfied. The wines by the glass were fine, and reasonably priced. (One of us does not drink.) The hosts at our B&B did well by us with this recommendation.

Lovely setting, wisteria dripping terrace, lovely interior complete with fire in winter.

Lunch time on market day always great value and very satisfactory food, value for money etc. etc.

But over the years have grown tired with the service...the aloof cool and lack of manners can be downright rude at times, and with plenty other great restaurants to choose from in Loches it is a shame more emphasis is not put on this FREE aspect of their business.

we have visited the restaurant approximately 3 times a year for the last 6 years, the most recent a table of 6 adults and 2 children, all eating the market day lunch time fixed menu.

Quiet back street restaurant - recommended. Very pleasant and helpful management and staff. good traditional French cuisine, however considered to be slightly over-priced compared to L'entracte.

We had an excellent meal in this very attractive restaurant. The wine was a little pricey but the food was of excellent quality and very well presented. The staff were charming and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
