We had lunch here after visiting the chateau. I chose it because of the name: Francois I's sign was the salamander. We ordered from the formule menu. I had the fish. Service was prompt and friendly.

As a party of 9 hungry cyclists we were looking forward to hearty rustic cooking. Unfortunately we received minuscule portions of the most mediocre food it has been our misfortune to experience in France for many a long year. The soup of the day appeared...More

The restaurant had a flexible in menu able to cater for a wide range of tastes. Everyone was happy with the simple food (chicken & chips !), and the service was good, although lacking a cheerful smile. I’d rate this as good ‘pub-type’ food.

At first it looked like a nice restaurant with a colourful front terass with tables outside. The service was good and quick. Sadly the pizzas were mediocre... expensive too for the rather small pizzas.

La Salamadre is the typical restaurant where you go driven by your eyes. It was a mistake…and even though the setting is wonderful, food was basic and lacking in taste. But the worst was the horrific and surly service which mede you feel unwelcome all...More
