We enjoyed Le Saint-Hilaire which offers fresh cooked food, and was the best out of 3 we tried in Chartres. It is small, so, better book in advance.

A simple menu with a few 'formules'. Fresh mostly seasonal and local ingredients ( there was salmon all the way from Norway which read like capitulation to tourists on a diet). Simply prepared dishes without fanfare or extravagance. Just good. Reasonably priced. Attentive service. I...More

We took a table for 6 (plus our little dog - who is perfectly well behaved and was warmly welcomed by all the staff). We dined upstairs (although there are a few tables downstairs too) and the ambiance was charming & cosy. Upmarket bistro-style with...More

There is a lot said about the food in this place and quite right to. It is exceptional and great value. But for me it is all the other things that make this place stand out. Like the very good friendly service and the really...More
