And the main course was excellent too. We had a starter of tuna fillet topped with black poppy seeds tomato coulis, pepper sorbet and aubergine caviar. Delicious. Chauvigny is a super town, and the old city and bird show are added attractions.

At the time of writing, this is the third best restaurant in Chauvigny on Tripadvisor. It's not. It's the best restaurant in Chauvigny and many other places one could mention. This was one of the best meals I have had anywhere, and it was 20E...More
