While exploring Bloise during a driving tour of the Loire Valley we stopped at the Les Arcades Brasserie for an afternoon snack and an adult beverage. The restaurant/bar is located amid a number of inviting restaurants however most were not open and would not open until later in the day. Les Arcades has a relatively spacious outdoor seating area and that is where we chose to sit to take advantage of the people watching opportunities as there were a number of people strolling through the area; some looking for a place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine like us and others just enjoying the day. This area of the old town is very inviting and quite comfortable. While we sat and enjoyed the afternoon we shared an order of foie gras which was quite good and while I drank a beer Susan enjoyed a glass of local wine. All-in-all it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

I had a very nice coffee here and then had dinner the next evening. Arcades offers some well made cocktails and we ate tapas started, followed by moules and the salade de chef and then dame blanche, accompanied by manhattans and cherveny. All this was well presented and tasty. The service was enthusiastic and helpful and the price quite reasonable (E30 per head). Other diners looked contented as well. I would go there again,

We ate here in four years before and it was touristy but very decent and not overly expensive. Since then ownership appears to have changed and everything is much poorer for it.

Tiny portions at high prices; service extremely sloppy - dishes forgotten; wrong sized carafes of wine delivered; dishes delivered to wrong tables and upon complaining no offer of an apology let alone a gesture of perhaps lowering the bill.

Appalling place - avoid. There are umpteen much better restaurants in equally attractive locations.

My foie gras starter came out of a pack.
My chicken main was a tiny chicken leg. Don't know how that could be considered a portion. And it had been baked with no seasoning except salt, and was so dry from being kept under heat for way too long that some of it was like leather. It came topped with a boring sauce and 2 pieces of limp lettuce. I could have had a better meal at Nandos or KFC.

We waited 45 mins for our food and another 30 mins for the bill, each time having to remind them repeatedly. They weren't rude, just completely disorganized.
