We regularly eat at Francois 1er on our trips to Ardres, and are never disappointed from the amuse bouche to the dessert. We have eaten both lunch and dinner here, with lunch being particularly good value. The wines are reasonably priced as well.

We've been going here for lunch for several years. As in the past, the food was excellent, with very friendly service, in a calm and unhurried atmosphere. There's car parking just outside and also a particularly nice wine shop nearby.
