We ate here on the first night in Blois- what a fantastic place, the service is impecable, friendly very welcoming. The food is amazing, great local dishes, beautifully presented and of excellent quality. The prices are very reasonable and there is something on the menu for all tastes. Our 14 year old thought the food was the best he had... More

We ate here two nights in a row, a tribute to the restaurant and a commentary on the others in the area. The first night, I had a Carpaccio appetizer, good, and duck breast for the main course, excellent. My wife had a cherry tomato salad that sounded mundane, but included touches such as a basil sorbet that made it... More

Wonderful meal, had the special meal of the day but for both evenings? Fillet steak, so wonderful, desserts to die for. If we had more time we would eat there every night. We stayed in Bloir for six nights but this was the best.

Nice quality food with good service. Handled gluten free needs of my wife in a helpful way. I had fillet of beef that was very good indeed. Menu was good and varied.

Food was delicious and service was charming. The best we ate in in Blois. Lovely outside terrace so I recommended you book that if weather permits. Central location.

We did not book but had no trouble getting a table as we arrived at about 7. We both ordered salads as it was so hot outside which sound a bit boring but were excellent. We shared a dessert of ice cream profiteroles which was plenty. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We dined here last night and had a wonderful meal. We didn't reserve and at 7:30, they could not seat up but did offer an 8:30mwhich we accepted. It was well worth the wait. We wondered around the neighborhood for a while and had a pre-dinner drink at a near-by outdoor bar. At the restuarant, we were seated outdoors and... More

After a considerable amount of time of walking around Blois searching, we decided on a little French restaurant with a patio. After that, we didn't expect much, but saw a menu outside with good options. We were not disappointed. The steak (we think flank or strip) was fantastic, perfectly medium rare, and juicy. The filet du bœuf, a special that... More
