As with my Villandry review, my visit was actually in 1957, not 2016! I have a favorite of me (and my aunt) sitting in a Renault rental in the foreground, with La Doulce Terrasse in the backgrtound. Neat!

The restaurant is immediately outside Villandry. We expected a cafe but was delighted to find a lovely busy restaurant under a marquee. A Set menu, we had chicken with baby vegetables and for pud cafe gourmand, lots of little puds with coffee. All very tasty.

This is the restaurant virtually in the front yard of the chateau at Villandry; they will do you a pass-out if you want to eat between visits to the chateau and the gardens. There is a little indoor cafe but the main feature is a large open terrace under the lime trees, with a pavilion area as over-spill/wedding function room/ice... More

Visited with our young family. Nice variety of options. Decent standard especially considering the location right outside the entrance to chateau de villandry. Friendly efficient staff. English versions of standard menus, happy to translate daily specials.

If you want to enjoy the gardens atmosphere during the whole day, the outside restaurant next to the entrance is a nice spot. For a 20€ menu (main dish + dessert) we enjoyed tasty French specialties and a pleasant service. Despite the crowds and a few oversights, our seasonal waiter was war full and helpful contributing to the positive experience.

Hunger hit as we finished our visit to Villandry Gardens and we had no desire to head up the road to one of the various restaurants we had seen entering Villandry. Just outside the gardens we spotted a sandwich wagon with some tables out in the warm sun. Probably functional but not especially appealing. Happily, just a few steps further... More

But if you do, check your food for hair. A lot. We did some really nasty discoveries half way in our salad and sent it out. You don't want to find four hairs. That is simply not ok. Did Not receive any deduction in price(!). The server mentioned it also happened earlier that same day. In the end we bargained... More

This cafe is just to the left of the entrance to Château de Villandry. Very nice surroundings, dine in the cafe building or the tents outside. Very nice cake & coffee, attentive and amusing waiter, just rather expensive.

We had a lovely lunch today, the vegetable quiche with green salad. i believe the vegetables are from the garden at Villandry and they certainly tasted very fresh. We relaxed and enjoyed our time there before setting off to see yet another castle not far from this lovely place. Staff were very nice

The food was beautiful and delicious. So far our best meal in France, and one of the least expensive as well. The service was great too. Highly recommend!
