The place is right on the road going along the Loire, and I think a lot of people stop by there going off the road, or because they are staying at the camping which is right over the corner.
The restaurant is medium sized, not fancy, but is nice and clean, and very bright.
We were there during the afternoon and even on a slightly gray rainy day it was nice and cheery.
It's a place where you can get fresh, relatively basic food, with some local flavor, quickly, and sit comfortably while enjoying it.
Wine menu has wines from Vouvray, and few wines of the overall Loire region, as well as other French wines.
Food is available either as a menu (starter, dish and desert or cheese) or a la cart.
The bread was freshly baked, warm and tasty.
The side salad was made of fresh, crispy ingredients.
"House" Foie gras with dried apples and spiced apple chutney is a bit on a heavy side, and I wish the apples and chutney were more present, but overall was nice.
Filet of turbot with skin and caper sauce was well prepared, not too dry, and with crispy skin. The capers and the sauce were not overpowering, and overall the fish was a tiny bit under seasoned, but nothing that couldn't be adjusted with a tiny bit of freshly ground peppers, and Himalayan salt which was present in individual grinders on the table.
If you choose the cheese plate for desert, you get to pick which you'd like from the cheese tray / platter, cut and served directly for your plate. The selection is approximately 15 cheeses, even if a bit basic it represent well the different tastes, strength and hardness of French cheeses.
The service was quick, and friendly.
At the time of our visit the place was completely full, and yet our food, and everybody else's came rather quickly, and was warm and fresh.
Even though we didn't ask for this, and are quite fine with French, because the people working there heard us speaking in English amongst ourselves, they tried to address us in English, and make us feel comfortable.
Ambiance / Decor:
Out the windows in the back you get a very relaxing view of some trees and stone bench.
While the ceiling is not very high, the overall feeling is spacious and airy, even if the sitting arrangements are a bit too close together.
The paintings that hang on the walls were a bit bright in spots, but I guess they added the touch of color that livened up the beigy-white walls.
With all the people in the place, in fact it was some kind of anniversary celebration, it was relatively noisy, but not overly so, possibly due to the noise absorbing panels in the ceiling.
Overall not a bad value for the money.
