On a rainy Sunday in Blois, we stumbled across this restaurant for shelter and weren't disappointed. The food was very good (but not excellent)- although the value was excellent at 15euro for 3 courses. All the food was homemade and had a freshness to it (home made chips and desserts highly recommended). The service and atmosphere was what made this place. Lovely staff and genuine place that wasn't filled with tourists.
Perfect stop off for weary Blois explorers.

we arrived for lunch on Sunday at this unusual little restaurant - filled with books and memorabilia. It was quite empty one minute, then people just piled in and it was soon full with lots of atmosphere - I think lots of locals come here. Food is simple but tasted wonderful and reasonably priced. Service was quick considering the number of tables they were looking after. we had a table in the corner by the window which was great.

This restaurant was suggested to us by our hotel, and judging by the Trip Advisor reviews, it seemed like a safe bet for dinner. While our waitress was pleasant, our meals were very bland, poorly cooked and of low quality. Our kids ended up leaving half their meals uneaten. Not a great experience, and as the previous reviewer indicated, disappointing given the relatively high rating here.

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.

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.
