The food is very tasty, not so cheap à la carte but if you take the menu du jour you pay 14€ for entrée, plat et dessert. I recommend if you are in Loches. Dessert wasn't really good though.

Hello MarcosH, Thank you for your review. Even if we're really sorry you didn't enjoy your meal, I think that you use inappropriate comments when you talk about "poor French provincial cooking". Thank you for being respectful.

Since nearly one century, the restaurant La Gerbe d'Or is a place of familiar appointment for lots of Lochois. The "Tuffeau" breathes the perfumes of the seasons, the large fireplace-dreams of the coloured scents of the aromas, with sweet and savoury spices, and the porch is curved to pay homage to this place where cooking becomes gastronomy.
