We stopped in here for a bite as it was located by the Cathedral (look for the sky blue shutters). Our choices were quite tasty and the price was reasonable (service was a little slow though). We had the Fois-gras au Porto and it was very good.

The ravioli starter with mushrooms tasty with airwhipped sauce, but only two mid-sized ravioli. Mains were decent , but it was 1 1/4 hour till they showed up- and in total there were only 6 persons in the... More

We had an unforgettably delightful evening in this charming little restaurant beside the Cathedral. From the impeccably blended welcome cocktail (kir fait maison) to the luscious appetizers, followed by the succulent main dishes and topped off with those orgasmic desserts, we were very impressed! One can certainly tell that they use fresh in-season products. The service was great and congenial,... More

We had lunch here with two of my friends from Paris and they were suitably impressed that we had found such an excellent restaurant in Chartres! It is located in a charming, ancient house, right opposite the Cathedral in the centre of Chartres. The food was perfectly prepared, really excellently presented and the service could not be faulted. They also... More

After arriving very late after traffic delay, staff were very accommodating. We had a delicious meal, the choices explained before ordering and we took the recommended wine which was perfect. We will go back.

This little restaurant looks unappealing from outside but is actually very charming inside. Consequently we recommend you do not just walk by. The menu de jour was 16 Euro and was good value for three courses all of which were of a high quality. Prawns, veal, chocolate ganache - what's not to like? We ordered a bottle of wine for... More

We visited this little restaurant last night based on the Trip Advisor reviews and enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is charming ( and it is true to say don't be put off by the outside of the building) and the service was perfect. While some people are keen to eat more quickly, we enjoy the feeling of not being rushed... More

A few nights ago, My four friends and I learnt about this wonderful restaurant through TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try since our hotel, Le Parvis, was literally steps away from Le Cloitre Gourmand. And we totally made the right decision! The exterior of the restaurant building was quite nondescript but the dining room was classy and not... More

Don't be put off by the exterior. Lovely dining area with view of cathedral in a room full of character. The food was excellent and the waiter knowledgeable and helpful recommending choices to accompany our food. Quiet at this time of year but only small so booking advised. I wish it was on my doorstep.
