We went two nights to this restaurant as it was close to our hotel where the restaurant was closed. It is a cosy, convivial spot which had a log fire burning and a good level of noise from people talking. The food was OK but...More

This restaurant is located just outside the main entrance to Fontevraud Abby in a cobbled square overlooking the Town Hall. The food is excellent and is reasonably priced. The house wine is really nice too. Please note they stop taking food orders circa 21:00.

We stayed in La Croix Blanche and had five days of half board here. Always interesting menu choices, the hardest part was deciding what to go for. Just superb.

Attentive service (although we had to wait for our bill to come), great food... and a little something (amuse bouche) before dinner. Generous refill of their excellent bread. $$.

Your comments are most helpful and appreciated! a little trivia for you: in France no one will ask 'if you want the bill ?' as it is considered very rude; the guest has to indicate that he/she is finished.
