In Blois, expecting goodness in food and wine. We only had a few hours but this is a find to bookmark. It's friendly, the entrees make a great meal for the jet-lagged (like us), there's a fine selection of beverages by the glass, and the ambience is just right. Plus, if you're staying below in the town and walk up to the brasserie, your appetite will deserve all it gets!

Being close to our accommodation, Bar Le Denis Papin was an easy choice for an evening drink. However, we found ourselves returning regularly for evening drinks and lunch during our 5 week stay in Blois. Christophe and Cathy were friendly and welcoming and we had interesting conversations in a mix of French and English. Christophe is a qualified chef who provides well cooked tasty food. He is happy to discuss the range of wines available and offers tastes to aid choices. Seeing "regulars" drop in each evening for a drink and conversation showed the popularity of this small bar. The weather prevented us enjoying the terrace, but we imagine that in warmer weather it would be a very popular place with its view over the town. No pretentions, just a welcoming, comfortable place to relax over a drink or two. Drop in and say hello to Christophe and Cathy. Highly recommended.

We had pleasure to visit this wonderful place last year on a holiday in the Loire and made sure we visited again this year on a return visit to Blois. This time it was for an aperitif before dinner, it was a lovely sunny evening and the views from the terrace and the bar were beautiful over Blois. Katy and Christophe offer such an amazing welcome and serve delicious wines, beer and other beverages.

In an amazing location at the top of the town where you can sit on the shaded terrace enjoying a perfect home cooked lunch or eat in the restaurant/bar if you prefer. Food is always fresh, beautifully presented by the chef and the menu is very interesting.

I would recommend you visit Le Denis Papin for a relaxing time in Blois with beautiful food, amazing atmosphere and incredible food.+-
