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.

You can't go wrong if you choose this restaurant. It was recommended by our hotel and we had a great night. The food is excellent, the ambiance sitting on the outside patio was lovely and the service was attentive and friendly.

Description
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.
