Visiting friends who live near the Loire, this was their choice for a busy Saturday night before Mother's Day. Every table was full, and from our selections rightly so. The restaurant is friendly, unpretentious and very moderate for the quality of the cuisine. Quenelles and foei gras were recommended, and they were excellent. I also enjoyed a Pamentier de lapin....

We had lunch on a sunday. The food was very good and a lot for the money. The house wine was mediocre, better choose a bottle of the wine menu.

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel. It has modern decor with well-spaced tables and a newly added sunroom. The food offerings were somewhat different from the usual French fare. A bouche of finely diced beets and citron creme fraiche followed toast points with mousse of both avocado and salmon. Although each was just a few mouthfuls, they... More

We are staying 6km away in the much larger town of Sully-sur-Loire. Sully does not have a single restaurant to compare with this one in Les Bordes. The modest descriptions of many of the menu items do not do justice to the superb dishes that they create. For example the starter "Oeuf en gelée au tourteau". which sounds quite simple... More

The restaurant is in the village of Les Bordes, a few kilometers from Sully. The dining room is bright, calm and tastefully decorated. There is a small terrasse too. The cooking is to a very high standard and represents excellent value. As a starter we chose quenelle de brochet which was served with a creamy Vouvray sauce. Our main courses... More
