“Mediocre food in 70's decor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

This restaurant pretends on their website a standard that they are not able to uphold. The food is far too chunky and more like a sub-standard bistrot than a good restaurant.
We both had the menu 'du terroir'. My rillette de canard came in a terrine form and was not creamy at all but very solid. It came with too hills of salad. The roasted veal was not really roasted and overcooked. The meat and the overcooked vegetables were drownd by a salty sauce overdone with maizena. The cheeses were good, but the cook didnt prepare that... My real dissappointment was the dessert. I chose for the clafoutis with caramalized pears, but instead received a solid creme brulee with tasteless pieces of pear. The nougat glacee of my partner never went int the freezer...

Our advice. Change the decor and fire the chef immediately. Montargis deserves a better restaurant!

Please, do not visit this restaurant.
