We just made the 115 pm cut off for a table. So very glad that we did! Two price points for a fix prix menu and we all opted for the lower priced option (it was lunch after all). My brother in law had the chicken liver sald, my wife had the cauliflower soup and I had the endive goat... More

We had an amazing meal for two on the last night of our holiday in Chaumont. We had to book in advance because it's always full and that's hardly a surprise with menus for most tastes and wallets. We had aperitif and 3 fabulous courses with a bottle of wine bottled less than 15 minutes walk away all for €77.... More

Four of us had dinner - it's only open 7-8.15 - and it was lovely. We all had the 3 course set menu for €28 per person plus the drinks. The boys had beer and the girls had the cocktail of the day aperitif which was so good we had 2. Despite our pathetic French the very friendly and efficient... More

I was surprised at how expensive this restaturant was over $30.00 for lunch for 1 person. I had an appetizer (5 large shrimp in a curry sauce). It was very good but not worth the priceof almost $15.00 I also had a small carafe of local white wine, a coffee and a dessert. Seems a bit much for what it... More

From the very warm welcome, the log-fire in the insert and the quality of food this was a very enjoyable experience and my over-all "4" grade is really a "4+". We chose different menus: my friend, more gastronomically, chose the menu at 28€ and took gambas in a light curry and whisky sauce, followed by grilled char (omble de chevalier)... More

Suggested by our B&B owner, we were delighted to find this to be one of the best meals we enjoyed in the Loire Valley. Only seats around 20-25, so reservations are a must. Fabulous goose liver terrine and a dessert plate of all 6 offerings is also a must! (the creme brûlée has a unique smoky-flavor that puts it "over-the-top... More

As recommended by others on TripAdvisor we had the 3 course menu which was superb, with each course having a nice selection to choose from. The girl serving provided us with the menu in English, and spoke excellent English herself. We were unsure which wine to choose so she suggested a lovely local Rose from a winery just on the...
