Although I had booked over the 'phone from England on entering this empty restaurant I was at first told I couldn't eat there - as it was the evening I mentioned my booking and after a few puffs of breath the lady allowed us to stay, ordinary meal in empty room. Disappointing.

We had dinner in La Maison Rouge as most of the other restaurants were closed on Mondays. The starter (variety of fish tartar) was quite OK, but nothing special. I had entrecote as a main course, the meat was not prepared well (many tendons that were not removed). The potatos in the Gratin Dauphinois that was served as a side... More

We struggled to get a table at a nearby restaurant but remembered the reviews of La Maison Rouge were pretty good. We were not disappointed. The food here was excellent. I had goats cheese tart to start with the most amazing salad for my main. The dressing was exquisite! There was no way I could squeeze in a dessert especially... More

We enjoyed a family meal here during our stay just outside Chinon. La Maison Rouge is a small restaurant, with a few seats outside too, therefore, booking is advisable. There is a daily specials board and between the four of us, we ordered the steak, a cod and prawn curry, duck breast and chicken and bacon salad. All four portions... More

A nice location in Chinon, pretty street and only low moment was the out of tune street guitarist ..... My steak was flavoursome and the halibut in saffron sauce very good. Service a little slow, but very friendly.

Ate there two evenings with friends. Chose from the Menu @ 22 euros for 3 courses. The food arrived together for each course and was hot and freshly cooked. We all enjoyed our food and the pitchers of local wine. There is an English menu if you can't manage the French one. It is small so arrive early to be... More

In a week of good meals, this meal stands out as one of the best. Our server seemed genuinely interested in helping us to have a good experience. When I couldn't decide on a wine, he suggested a featured wine, which just happened to be exactly what I love. It was called Folle Blanche from Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin from the... More

Weren't sure where to go for food on a Monday evening with many places shut. Came across La Maison Rouge and was delighted with the choice. Three course meal for 21€ offered very good value. Each course was of a high quality and friendly service to go with it. I can recommend this restaurant.
