“Fabulous find in the heart of the Sologne”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We rented a chateau in nearby Charmont-sur-Tharonne and ate at this nearby establishment on three occasions. Each was marvelous. The two chefs (father and son) are extremely talented and put a modern slant on French classics using the finest local ingredients (including caviar from the Sologne). The dining room is charming and the staff are extremely friendly and bilingual. They will do anything to please, including reworking dishes in order to meet the lactose-free requirements of one of our guests. All things considered, this was one our finest dining experiences in France. Off the beaten track, but well worth a detour.

“amazing souffle”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

We stayed for the second time at the auberge, its friendly and very welcoming. Great to see a family run business doing so well. We had again an exceptional meal, beautifully put together and cooked, the riz de veau is perfection, either way they serve it. We finished with a raspberry souffle that would have out classed another one anywhere..........it was delicious creamy, full of flavour and so light, absolutely fabulous. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, and the rooms are comforable.

“Great food at sensible prices”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

2nd time be have tried this restaurant this year & if anything it just gets better! The food is fairly traditional French cuisine but superbly cooked & a good wine list. We had a delightful Lobster gazpacho to start (most unusual), possibly the best 'ris de veau' we have ever tried & definitely THE best rasperry soufflee we have ever had! Definitely worth going out of the way for. Whilst the setting is not grand it's pleasant, family run & very friendly. However I would equate the food to a Michelin sinlge rosette restaurant at least!

“First class food at sensible prices”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Selection, combinations & tastes all excellent. Wine list a little restricted unless you like Loire wines! Restaurant pleasant & not overly pretentious. Service also excellent.
