we had some addresses, but when we passed this place, we noticed some special things on the menu. The food is sophisticated, really haute cuisine, and beautifully presented. The restaurant gives you a cozy feel while the service stays professional, and very friendly. If they can manage to install a small fridge to keep the Saumur Champigny cool, it will be perfect, currently it's close to that

This restaurant is quite good, the staff is very laid back and cheerful. The decoration and desserts are most definitely quirky, it adds to the charm. I had the camembert salad that was very good and my husband had a steak with fries. We shared the chocolate dessert and expresso.

We had a lovely dinner at this cozy small restaurant, made more so by a stormy night in Blois. The staff was warm and welcoming from booking our reservation through the whole of our meal. Service was excellent. We laughed at their small sign in the window, "We try to speak English," which they do very well, of course. Tables were filled and all seemed to enjoy the conviviality. Our food more than matched the hospitality. Menu was inviting and varied. My wife started with red mullet with a tasty tapenade, then cod with a potato crust and pequillo pepper jam. I had quenelles of pike with tempura snail bites followed by a broiled sturgeon steak with red beet coulis. Each dish was exquisitely prepared and presented and was delicious. Our meal was among the best we had in France.

We booked ahead so there was no problem being seated. The menu offered several fixed price meals with a selection two or three of starter, main and dessert. You could also add on a cheese course for a little extra.
The restaurant was small but comfortable, the staff spoke English quite well and with our little French, we had no problem. The menu was offered in English as well as French. They change the menu weekly to accommodate whatever is in season. The food was nicely presented and very satisfying. We had a local Loire wine which we enjoyed so much that we sought ut the cave the next day to buy some to take home.

After numerous of disappointing meals in Paris, we were rewarded with a splendid dinner in this little restaurant. A girl from one of the city's patisserie advised us this place for tasty and French food. God bless her! The dishes are vey interesting and unusual and very delicious. The staff is very welcoming and gives great advice on the menu. Pity we were not able to re-visit this place as we were in town only for a day. One of the best places I've been in terms of food in France.
