We went to this restaurant for dinner and it was crowded. The service was very kind and the burgers were excellent. Prices are okay there. We undoubtedly recommend this place.

Dinner in a Loire cave is quite a special setting, surrounded by wonderful ambiance. It's a favorite of locals, so a timely reservation is best. Easy to find & reach. Owned by same family & that pride shows through in the tasty food & local wines. Bilingual, friendly and helpful. You'll enjoy....

This is 1/3 of business, the others being a winery & hotel. The food is simple & delicious. The rosé was superb & I ended up taking a few bottles with me.

There are only a small number of tables here, most of them inhabited by locals, a very good sign! The food itself was excellent quality and prepared simply, the excellent ingredients really required no embellishment with extravagant sauces etc. The house wine, as... More

Atmosphere is good (in a cave), service efficient and friendly and food pretty good, but not spectacular - we had the Eur22 menu, and it was probably the best value we had in our week in the Loire valley

We stayed at the hotel and went there for dinner, it was nearly empty when we went in, thought this may not be a good sign... after we were there for about 30 mins the place was packed, we were fortunate to have gotten a table.
