“Special dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

On a lovely sunny day, we wandered around the old town in Loches, checking the menus at the various restaurants with outdoor seating and decided on La Lanterne. Can't remember what else we had, but the dessert was a wonderful chocolate-pear creme brulee. Never had anything quite like it -- worth a detour!

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Loches is really quite touristy and should have better quality restaurants than it does. This restaurant is a bit tucked way and is full of locals (myself having been a local for 5 years until recently) but if does a great lunch time trade. the salads are to die for and the plat du jours which change every day are such good value. The young couple who run it are very personable which makes a huge difference having eaten in many french restaurants with surly staff. Well recommended.
