Restaurants in Chinon - open on Monday/Tuesday

We are staying in Chinon on March 25th & 26th (Monday & Tuesday before Easter) and, having witnessed from our trip to St Emilion, restaurants don't all open all week. Can anyone suggest good restaurants that will be open the Monday & Tuesday before Easter?

Le Gandoyau, part of the Gargantua Hotel is open on Mondays and Tuesdays. We ate there twice, once for lunch, once for dinner a year or so later. Haven't been in nearly two years but both times were good when we went, although our first time there for lunch was better than dinner on our second visit. I don't know what it's like now. http://www.hotel-gargantua.com/

You can do a search on Viamichelin.com for current info on Chinon restaurants. Of the five in-town restaurants they list, three are closed Monday, one is the Ibis Styles which doesn't inspire confidence, and the only other possibility in town is Les Annees Trente. Of their closing days and dates, Michelin says "Contact the establishment to check this information." The Annees Trente website says closed Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday all day. Still, I wouldn't count on that, based on our experience. I have not been to any of these restaurants.

If you have a car you can go farther afield. We've had one excellent lunch in Montsoreau at Diane de Meridor and simple but good-enough dinners in Azay-le-Rideau at La Ridelloise. (I didn't check to see about Mondays.) Years ago, Moulin Fleuri (address is Veigne but it's hard to find) was our favorite in the area--probably too far for you to drive, though.

Thanks everyone. I have now searched and found Les Années Trente which I have booked for the Monday using La Fourchette (The Fork), so hopefully it will be open when we get there.
