So declares each page of the menu … and I have no reason to doubt the claim. However deciding quantities of meat, fish, vegetables, etc. to purchase must be quite a challenge when the restaurant has so few diners (we enjoyed a very good mid-week lunch, and there were only 5 other diners, though it is probably busier at a...

A very good to enjoy local produce, well and carefully presented cooked. Sensible value, mid range for normal French prices, cheaper than the honey pots of Saumur. Worth a visit if you're in thsi part of the Loire region.

First dined at this restaurant in early September 2012 and couldn't wait to return! We were not disappointed when we stayed overnight in May and had another excellent meal in the restaurant, with first class overnight accommodation and a classic French breakfast. Could not fault either the restaurant or the hotel and the only disappointment was that journey times made... More

Chef Bichon, although hidden away in a small town on the banks of the Loire, is a culinary giant. Rarely have we had meals so full of flavor and so visually pleasing! Only a truly talented Chef can bring to the fore every drop of flavor in his ingredients and blend them so very well. No novice, Chef Bichon regularly... More

This restaurant is closed on Wednesdays, but there is no mention of this on their website. What a shame as we were looking forward to it and, being without a phone on our travels, made the trip.
