“Great food in a busy restaurant”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Thed food was delicious but make sure that you're seated in the main part of the restaurant and not at the back which lacked atmosphere; felt a bit crammed in. Obviously popular and with good reason.

“Good food and very French ambience”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We had a two course lunch here, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The food was delicious, freshly cooked, arrived promptly and was reasonably priced. It is a small restaurant, frequented by locals, who seem to enjoy their quiet bit of tourist watching, as they eat. The owner speaks quite good English, which he is obviously pleased to be able to practise and which no doubt impresses his compatriots - but I did manage to get in a bit of French too. The waitress served a wrong dessert to my husband and although it was changed without question, it did not seem to occur to her that I might understand the rather acerbic aside she made to the watching owner, as she swept away with the offending dish and fully (and wrongly) placed the blame at our door. But then, this is France - they do things differently there! Recounting the strange behaviour of 'Les Anglais' and feeling superior to them is a fascinating national pass time. We would definately go back again.

“Strongly recommend”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Walked by this restaurant by chance while strolling in old town center. We were not able to get a table without reservation, so we made one and came back the next day for dinner.

Very small and crowded restaurant but great atmosphere.
The menu offers a variety of choices, french cuisine.

The food was delicious, the best meal we had in Blois.

The desert of the day was absolutely delicious, one of the best things I ever ate in France (creme caramel I think it was).

The prices were kind of high even with the choice of menu.

Strongly recommend it.

“One of the best”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We went here on a recommendation from our accommodation and were not disappointed. The service was prompt, the food was excellent and we would certainly return.
It is a small place and fills up fairly quickly so you either need to book or arrive early on nights when it's potentially busy.
