We ended up eating here twice in a week because we enjoyed our first experience there so much. There are just two people working here, one in the kitchen and one front of house. The service is warm and friendly and the food is really delicious. We throroughly enjoyed both of our visits andwould certainly go back.

We dined across the river in Chaumont-sur- Loire two nights ago at La Madeleine de Proust, which has a lot more Trip Advisor reviews and quite good ratings.
We enjoyed the village atmosphere in Onzain at La Charbonette, walking distance from our hotel. There is a small street front dining room as well as a larger back dining room. Service is provided by only one server, as was the case at La Madeleine de Proust, but probably more efficient. Our server was delightful.
The food is better here, on this side of the river. The atmosphere at La Madeleine de Proust, on the other side, is somewhat more cozy
Overall if we had to select between the two we would take Charbonette

My husband and I ate at this restaurant in the village of Onzain on a Monday night. Our hotel restaurant was closed for the night and La Charbonette was recommended by a hotel staff member. The restaurant is small, one watress took care of a entire room of about 14 people. The service was excellent. But the food was even better. Two pre-fixe menus were presented, in French, on black chalkboards, one with more courses than the other. The food was creative without being 'experimental', each dish had good flavors, well prepared and with nice presentations. We ordered dessert because it was part of the meal plan. We got Tart Tartin and chocolate cake with salted caramel coulis, The cake was warm with a molten chocolate center. It was an excellent choice, a tasty surprise. The Apple tart was also delicious. There were many dessert options, I feel like we got the 2 best on the menu and hard to say if others would have been any better. The wine list was small but adequate. We truly enjoyed this French village dining experience.
