A charming and elegant restaurant on the first floor (US second floor) of Le Choiseul hotel, the frontline tables offer a view of the Loire. The first night we ate as part of a large group and the second night as a couple. We enjoyed excellent meals both times.
With the group we all enjoyed very good fois gras, followed by a delicious turbot and then a creamy dessert with pistachio ice cream. Both the demi-sec local white wine and the fine red wine were impressive.
Amuse Bouche on the second night were even better than the first night. Breads were excellent and service first class and friendly.
On our second night one of us had superb scallops and the other enjoyed a delicate butternut squash soup with chestnuts. Mains were beautiful red mullet and very tasty duck served two ways. Both were accompanied with superb sauces, especially the reduction with the duck.
We then shared a cheese plate and a lovely chocolate dessert. The cheese trolley was stuffed with at least 10 goat cheeses and another 10 cow's cheeses. This came with slices of a good walnut bread.
There were jams to go with the cheeses: fig, green tomatoes and grape. Our cheeses were in top condition and tasted even better with the jams, which were both sweet and sour. We'd have loved to buy some jars to take home with us as they were amazing and took our cheese experience to another level.
To finish on both evenings, we were offered coffee or various teas and some lovely petit fours.
A very impressive restaurant. We understand it used to have a Michelin star and it certainly deserves at least one.
