Best dining experience of our recent trip (and there were some good contenders)! My husband is a professional chef- so we are picky and we were not disappointed at all. To complicate matters, I can't eat dairy due to a severe intolerance - they went out of their way to accommodate and still ensure that my experience was just as... More

Hidden away in a quiet street in the centre of Beaugency, it's easy to miss this excellent restaurant, which was recommended to us. Our authentic French evening meal was outstanding, with friendly service and good wine. Very good value overall.

We read about this restaurant before visiting Beaugency and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Excellent service, reasonable prices and good wine selection.

The restaurant is kind of dark in the interior and very classical. The tables are far from each other. The service is OK but not great. The menu is really limited and has the classical French dinners. The food is OK but not great. The wine list is good and contains mostly wine from the region.

Had dinner with my wife, for the first time in this restaurant. Very nice setting, service & welcome. Very good dishes, but not enough atmosphere in this winter season. A plus for the cheese plate, favoring local cheeses. A must!

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Chef/owner was helpful as well as creative with the cuisine. To bad weather wasn't better since it would have been nice to sit outside.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and were very satisfied. The interior is pleasing, the staff efficient, and the food delicious and beautifully presented. I would return.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of the gite we were renting close by and had dinner here on our last evening of the holiday. We were warmly welcomed by the lady of the house, who is also the chef d'patissiere (we discovered later) and shown to our table. The menu is small, comprising a maximum of 4... More

A very nice experience. This is a gourmand's restaurant. Lovely service and food. Amuse-bouches were tasty. Appetizers of mini onion tart and magret de canard were excellent as were main courses of (small portions) of St. Pierre and Lotte. Cheese tray of (mostly) local cheeses was great. Nice selection of Loire wines.

Thank psf1
