“Truly disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

Disappointing is the minimum I can state about this experience, one rare occasion where the advise of TripAdvisor did not get into its expectation.
Food and wine terrible. No taste, very badly made, just a chaotic mix of some ingredients without really being cooked as they should, wine also very bad, served in glasses completely inappropriate... The only things ok were the simple dessert of white fresh cheese and the commercial play of the waitress (she is really good and deserves a better match in terms of restaurant throughput). All in all, what astonished us was the number of people there as that would be something of value (but we tasted 2 entrées and 2 plates and all were at the same low level). Not to recommend, even a normal "brasserie" will be much better.

“Great little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Ate here on a one night stopover. Arrived close to opening time, and despite not having a reservation, we were given a table inside - it was a wet evening so outside was not really an option. Within 15 minutes the place was full to capacity. The staff were hard worked to meet demand, but we enjoyed a leisurely dinner in the small, intimate restaurant. The "menu of the day" had plenty of choice, and was very reasonably priced. We were allowed to mix the a la carte and menu choices for the same price. I would recommend making a reservation, based on this visit. I would definitely eat here again if I visit Blois again.

“Overated - not great, not bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

In no way does it live up to the hype on here, the food (we had the cheapest set menu) is slightly better than average and portions are good, the house wine was good for the price but otherwise the whole experience is just ok.

Terrace eating is on plastic chairs in the street!

“Decent food, good value, and pleasant staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

Good value table d'hôte and à la carte, with food very acceptable for the price. Staff kindly moved us inside from the drizzle when room permitted. Quirky menu in red phone box outside, and in children's books inside. Decent wine list and good atmosphete inside and out. A saviour on a damp Sunday night. Many others closed.
