Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely meal here. Just staying up the road at the wonderful Maison Loire. The host recommended it and he wasn’t wrong. Great service and the food was very tasty.

Excellent dinner for 4 with some really inventive vegetarian cooking for 2 of us. The chef certainly has talent which deserves to be appreciated. Go - you will not be disappointed

Three of us had dinner here on April. The menu is initially quiet intimidating, four choices of both starters and mains, each of which has three or four flavours and multiple ingredients. We spent a while on our phones decrypting all the meal elements. Perhaps...we should have been more relaxed, as all the dishes were lovely with nice sauces. I had the trio of lamb and all three were excellent. It is a classic small family restaurant, not posh or particularly stylish, but we had a lovely dinner and they were helpful with getting out in time for the son et Lumiere in the castle. Recommended by our hotel and by me.More

What a find, we both enjoyed our meals. I started with shellfish in aspic, really strong fish flavour and tasty bits of cold shellfish, served with tiny tasty mushrooms. My partner had fois gras and he said it was one of the best he had...ever tasted. I then had ‘maigre’ fish with fennel, super and the lamb for partner again was extremely well cooked, tasty and good portions. RecommendMore

Fully booked. Reservation necessary already on Wednesday evening. Friendly staff. Food wasn't really our thing, but we guess that's due to ourselves ... Try for yourself, it might turn out OK.

We were roving the streets for somewhere to eat, and found this little place. Not the cheapest (€28 for 2 courses in September 19) but you will not be disappointed. All the food was cooked to perfection and attractively presented. The waitress spoke excellent English....Even in September it was full so you should make a reservation in the holiday periods.More

The place opened at 7, we saw an open door and walked in. We nabbed the last table available. RESERVATIONS ESSENTIAL. Service was friendly and non intrusive. They spoke English, even though we were trying our best Franglais. We went for three courses . They...added a lovely Cream of Asparagus soup as a Amuses Bouche. Every course was beautifully cooked and presented. My lamb main course was to die for. For dessert, we shared a plate of samples of all the desserts... It wasn't cheap, but it was well worth it . Recommended.More

We wandered looking for a place to dine after the castle visit just hoping to find a last minute table… Is a small restaurant with very simple decor, very white and red. We had a bonito carpaccio with Cancale oysters dressed with apple vinaigrette; asparagus...with pea mousseline and quail pieces; both entrée were appetizing; as mains we had duck breast cooked with ginger and soy sauce and served with sweetcorn fritters; the duck was OK but the base was a bit too oversauced (and oily) and the fritters were (some of them) black burned… the lamb with the local beans (Comtesse de Chambord) was tasty. For desserts we chose the gingerbread and the tarte tatin, both sweet and perfect for a flourish end. Prices are average like any other eatery (we chose the 33,50 menu which includes a starter, main and dessert, drinks are separate) and the service was good, very busy at times specially if is just one person who takes care the whole dining room, serving, bartending and cashing. This is a very good address for a casual lunch or dinner in this town.More
