“A fine restaurant for wonderful meal next to the Loire”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We intended to go to the Logis in Montsoreau originally, but it was closed over the Easter break. We noticed this restaurant on the way up the hill to the Châteaux , so decided to give it a try, and we were not disappointed. The food was very good, and living in France it is pleasant to find a place that offers a good variety on the menu. The wine selection was also good, and they were not trying to over charge for local wines. If you are looking for an above average meal , with some fine wine, then this is better than most in this area.

“Trying for a star??”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant had fairly good food, but I wondered if it was trying too hard to get a Michelin star. Some things were peculiar; one night they served asparagus, each individually standing in a long shell. There didn't seem to be a point, as they couldn't be eaten that way. Another time the dessert of strawberries was served with raw whipped egg white, which seemed a bit dangerous to eat.

“Another anniversary celebrated here in style !”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Here we are again. The only things that change are the pictures on the wall ! The food is just excellent with plenty of variety to choose from. My wife had the Eu39 and I had the Eu43 which included fromages and we were kindly supplied with two plates so had a taster each for the Eu4. I usually prefer to choose from the cheese-board but the selection of 4 cheeses was excellent. The duo of creme brulee has now changed to one brulee with fruits. The staff are always attentive and cheerful.
. This was yet another anniversary meal that we reserved for our visit here. Merci M. et Mme. Deze

“Very good and not too expensive”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Very good food. Regional produces.
Well executed.
We had the 5 course meal: mise en bouche, appetizer, main course, cheese and dessert.
For 2 with one bottle of wine, one bottle of evian and one extra glass of wine: €117.
Definitly an address to remember and located in a magnificent village.
The dinning room has a nice view of the Loire.
Great service by young staff.

“A beautiful restaurant on the banks of the Loire.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We had the 30Euro per person formule, which had two options for each of the three courses and an amuse bouche to start. It was all delicious and beautifully presented - we had to photograph our food! I had the sandre main course and it was a delicate fish, which surprised me. My wife had the chicken ballotine dish and really enjoyed it. We went for dinner on a Saturday which gladly we'd booked in advance as the restaurant was full.
