We had a nice meal but similar to many others. Menu has some large salads. Plat du jour was Reasonably priced. Advise reservations.

I always think food in France is over-rated, and this was no exception ! Mark you, I am probably a bit fussy.

Really nice spot on the square, this is the restaurant that is connected to the Hotel de la France in Chinon. Was hoping for a better experience, may have been influenced by the fact I was traveling solo. Pate and appetizers were good, fish entree was just OK. Upside is local wines are inexpensive and very good - so the... More

Following a disappointing encounter with At'Able the previous evening we were once again optimistic about enjoying some good French cuisine and arrived at this restaurant without a reservation. They seated us on a table immediately opposite the entrance as they were fully booked. This turned out to be problematic for the people carrying food and plates in and out of... More

Just returned from week at this very friendly hotel where we chose to dine on three evenings. Very happy with service and food, which was very good and very reasonably priced. We have travelled widely in France over the years and would be very happy to return here. Do not recognise experience of previous reviewer at all, though we were... More

We can only comment on the evening meal we had here. The service by the staff was up to MacDonald standard. The food was not far short of that - mostly little fresh preparation going on and bought in from local shops and tarted up with a sauce. For the price paid it was pretty appalling - and not representative... More

After a very reasonable lunch the previous day we had expected at least as good an experience the following evening. In the event, nothing really went right. We had made a reservation but nobody seemed to know where we were supposed to be sitting. We waited an age to be served at a half laid up table outside and other... More

Service was very good and the staff very friendly and the atmosphere was buzzy with mostly French clients . The food was very good but not outstanding!

The food and service were excellent, but you need to make sure to have reservations if you're more than a group of two since it's a fairly small establishment. I had the 35 euro menu, which started with a scallop dish, followed by filet mignon, then an assortment of their special desserts. The staff and hostess were very friendly and... More

We like the central spot the restaurant sits in but decided to try this restaurant rather than our favourite Les Cafe des Arts which stis next door. The service was friendly enough, but in comparison, the set menu was more limited and as a result our meal was more expensive. For us, it is the poorer of the two restaurants.
