After a disastrous meal and a mediocre meal in Chinon, we were a bit apprehensive when we entered La Maison Rouge. However, this proved to be by far the best meal we had in Chinon. We opted for the fixed price 3 course dinner which proved to be very good value. There was plenty of choice - the crab salad starter was delicious. We both had the halibut mains - again fantastic. The desserts were amazing - the strawberry panna cotta is to be recommended. The service was spot on and the atmosphere very good. Had we been staying longer in Chinon, we would have returned to try some of the other choices we saw being carried past!

We were visiting Chinon and had plenty of time to spare so wandered into the Medaeval quarter. There we spotted La Maison Rouge and as it was time to think about lunch we decided to give this restaurant a try. We only wanted a cheap 2 course lunch as we were dining out in the evening and this offered such a menu for 12 euro each.

What a fantastic choice this turned out to be.

The meal was exquisitely cooked using wonderful produce and lovingly presented. We both had braised pork with root vegetables with a gravy that had probably taken 3 days to make (it was absolutely fabulous) and pineapple two ways. I wished we had been able to return for dinner.

This proved to be the best meal we had in France - I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Lovely location: in the old quiet street of chinon. Go for the menu du jour: very good value for money, and portions are generous in particular re: the starter which could be a main. We therefore opted for coffee rather than tarte au chocolat which looked delicious but would not have managed.

Lovely restaurant. Beautiful setting. Great food and service and the tomato carpaccio was one of the best starters I have ever eaten. Good value too.
