“Lovely riverside location, pity about poor food and service”
Review of Cafe de la Loire

We were a party of 4 and we had booked ahead. Service was painfully slow, and when 3 of the 4 plates of food arrived after well over half an hour there were errors: a burger which was supposed to be rare and without cheese was well done and with cheese, and a croque monsieur ordered without chips came with chips. My own plate arrived 10 minutes after everyone else's. The steak was adequate but the chips were the worst I've ever had, soggy, flaccid and soaked in fat, completely inedible.

Stopped off on a bike ride last year and was charged double the normal price for a coffee. They don’t seem to like English tourists.

The location is unbeatable. The verandah is the place to eat. The menu sheets are reminiscent of an eatery in a British seaside town - fallen on hard times. But don't be put off. Keep your choices, simple fresh and hot - an aperitif of a small beer, a main of steak (chose blue, rare, well done), chips and salad with a glass / carafe of red wine. Ignore the salad buffet and desserts. Coffee is excellent and the pricing is simple to understand. The staff comprehend enough English to enjoy a conversation. Relax enjoy, before cycling onwards.

Stopped off for a coffee and was ripped off 4 euros for a coffee. Won't be going back. Seems as if you are a tourist it's an excuse for the owner to increase prices as he likes. In Montsoreau sparkling wine cost less!

Tucked away on the riverside, a warm welcome and good coffee but you have to look for it. The A board is a bit out of sight down a lane.
