We were staying in the attached hotel and had wondered round the city before deciding to eat here. Ate here on a Sunday evening, the restaurant wasn't busy but the food and service were excellent. The fixed price menu du terroir was interesting and the cooking was very good. Very impressed and would eat here again.

We were sent to this restaurant by our hotel staff at Le grand monarque as their restaurant was fully booked. This was a good second choice with a good menu of varying price ranges. We can recommend it

After visiting Picassiette, we looked for a restaurant downtown. The Amphitryon is well, located with a nice terrace. We had the menu du terroir that has some original features like the green pea gazpacho, the maigre with risotto. Also a nice attention, we were offered coffee for us to forgive the delay between appetizers and entrees. Overall a good experience.

Stopped overnight at the hotel recently. Chartres amazingly busy and rather than engage with the scrum in town we opted to eat at the hotel's restaurant. The food was exceptional and the whole atmosphere in the restaurant was terrific. Unfortunately due to the fact that there were, on the hotel's admission, staff problems i.e. not enough staff, the service ground... More

The food does not taste good. The cold pea soup tasted like puréed frozen pea with grains of undissolved salt. The beef even though cooked to medium, is still tough to chew on. The strawberry Breton with pastry cream is the most horrendous of all. Whoever colors the cream patisserie green is out of his/her mind. I'd rather not have... More

We arrived in Chartres quite late and we were recommended the restaurant. the Hotel-restaurant is well located and elegantly presented, we seemed to have arrived at a busy time, quite tired, and decided to go for the Menu du Terroir, which I must confessed, as I type this, it should have been called Menu de Terror...

My husband is vegetarian, so travel to France can be challenging! This restaurant provided a delicious selection of everything veggie on it's menu for him. The lemon quinoa was a big hit. My non-veggie meal was wonderful too. Decor is elegant and lovely.

We were looking for a dinner reservation for a Monday night which is hard to find in Chartres, and saw this restaurant was open. We found the service much less polished than other restaurants of this refinement. The cuisine seemed to use fresh ingredients, but the seasoning was was uneven. Sometimes the sauce accompanying the dish was well developed, but... More

It's a nice restaurant overlooking the cathedral. Service was fine too. My wife had the kangaroo just to try it and we didn't like it even though it was recommended by the waiter.
