We chose this restaurant by accident and had a very good meal. The room is classy and elegant. Staff were very friendly and the food exceptional. Definitely the place to go in Chinon. Quite small so you should probably book.

Wow, this place was just sensational. The cusine was amazing - wonderful flavor combinatons, a great wine selection, a beautiful atmosphere and cozy ! I would rate this the number one restaurant in Chinon if you are looking for 'gourmet dining' with a flair. There are only eight tables - very intimate.

Very good restaurant. The menus offer a large variety of French dishes. Service was friendly and the atmosphere very cosy. A little disappointment however on the wine we were suggested to have. Also, it's a bit pricey, albeit it was packed on a mid-week night

Wonderful restaurant in the heart of Chinon, excellent food, would definitely go back Not quite sure what their policy is on children, it is quite a 'grown up' restaurant, with no (obvious) childrens menu though his was not an issue for us. Reservations stongly advised, as even on Thursday night they were fully booked!

We found ourselves in Chinon on a Friday night in early August, called up the Trip Advisor app on my Blackberry, and found this place. Tables outside were all reserved but we had the best of the inside tables. Fantastic meal, sensible prices for wine, and delightful staff. Highly recommended. Thank you Trip Advisor!

We were invited to dinner here with friends. I loved the ambience, the staff were attentive and helpful. The menu was inventive and interesting, we were all agreed that the strongest points of the meal were the starter and dessert, and it was clear to all of us that the chef's passion was dessert. can't fault him for that.

Thank actisup
