It's about a year since I was last here for dinner and it is still a great place for dinner. The staff and owners are friendly and welcoming, and very accommodating for those of us whose French isn't great! The Oeufs Meurette starter was delicious. The Entrecôte was very well cooked... probably more rare than the medium I asked for... More

Picked this restaurant for lunch after scanning TripAdvisor options in Blois. Reviews were very positive and they were all true. As soon as we entered this restau we were struck by general standard of decoration, fittings, stuff adorning the walls. We got a sense that this restau is loved by its owner. Light airy clean very carefully and intelligently designed.... More

We ate here two nights in a row, a tribute to the restaurant and a commentary on the others in the area. The first night, I had a Carpaccio appetizer, good, and duck breast for the main course, excellent. My wife had a cherry tomato salad that sounded mundane, but included touches such as a basil sorbet that made it... More

Wonderful meal, had the special meal of the day but for both evenings? Fillet steak, so wonderful, desserts to die for. If we had more time we would eat there every night. We stayed in Bloir for six nights but this was the best.

Nice quality food with good service. Handled gluten free needs of my wife in a helpful way. I had fillet of beef that was very good indeed. Menu was good and varied.

We did not book but had no trouble getting a table as we arrived at about 7. We both ordered salads as it was so hot outside which sound a bit boring but were excellent. We shared a dessert of ice cream profiteroles which was plenty. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
