I went to this restaurant in a group of 5 for lunch. We had a very good time, with a very friendly staff. For a starter we choose "moules au vin" and as main dish I had duck. The quality of the food and its presentation is excellent. It was a very good experience and I recommen this restaurant, even... More

Quite a busy place, we were lucky to fit in running from the pouring rain. Already smelled the seafood the day before walking by so I thought it will be allright. Finally took a salad and waffle for dessert. It was delicious. The only negative is that the salad was full with meat. Normally when you order a salad you... More

Stumbled upon this place after visiting Chambord. There are a few restaurants lines up on this street right off of the main square and it seemed lively enough. We sat at a table that was technically inside but since the front was completely open it was as if we were on the sidewalk. Again, convivial enough, but as soon as... More

Leisurely walk in town and came across this restaurant. Fish and chips were the initial draw, but everything was great. Staff also good and very attentive. Worth a look even if you sit inside. Too sit outside better get there before 7pm.

My husband and I had a great meal here. Located off the main square in Orleans. We had 2 main courses 2 desserts 2 soft drink fall for €42! Recommend the carbonara, lamb chops with chunky chips. Dessert menu was great... I wanted to try them all. Eventually chose the moelleau au chocolat and it was cooked to perfection.

Lovely meal here. I had a deliciously tasty carbonara, my husband had lamb chops with chunky fries. Both tasted wonderful, followed by ice cream and moelleux au chocolat which was divine😃€42

Firstly I must comment on how difficult it is to get a table anywhere in Orleans after 7.30pm and that many restaurants are closed on Sunday evenings. We ate here at about 7.15pm and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We shared a Camembert starter then had the duck confit and roti chicken - both were served with garlic potatoes... More

En route to the south of France two weeks ago we stayed in Orleans and went to Le Brin de Zinc for dinner. Sat outside, and waited and waited and waited. We were just ignored. The waiters were all around but wouldn't come our way. Other diners arrived at the tables next to us and they were served. We got... More

French cuisine yes, but Wetherspoon's quality. If you find yourself here, opt for the moules as the kitchen is manned by cooks.
