“Good Choice”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Passed this restaurant while following one of the 4 brass plaque walks that take you through the main attractions of this lovely city. We sat at the outside terrace for lunch and so enjoyed our meal that we reserved an inside table that evening for dinner. At 24€ for 3 courses it really was one of the better value offers in Blois. Portions are on the small side by English standards but normal for French. The main course dishes really were very tasty and it's a very authentic rustic environment. Good pleasant service and good coffee.

“Good traditional french food”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I went with all the familiy on a Saturday night. Fairly empty even in a long weekend in France... A bit surprising.

The starters were quite bland and small portions (croquette de Camembert et terrine) but the main courses were really good all of them. My kids licked the dish clean! I had the tripes a la mode de caen (first time, very good) and we tasted nearly all the main courses. All excellent.

Dessert was just ok.

Overall I would say quite good just due to the main courses. We ate outside which is not a remarkable view, but wethaer was good.

“A real local delight..”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Small..(yes)…authentic…(yes)…french menu (rather than europeanised…yes)…range of choice (limited…4/5 of each course..excellent beef cheek…good rabbit..)…service (friendly and good)…Wine..(local, excellent and reasonable prices). Its a great spot at the 'top of the town'…8-10 tables only inside (it was raining so no other choice!)..Overall great choice...

“Delightful spot off top of the main shopping street with fine freshly produced fare.”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

Recommended by another establishment nearby, and were not disappointed. Entrées good, and main course excellent. Veal head was slow braised and served with its stock and tender, but not over-cooked, vegetables. Cod superb. The marischino icecream was to die for. Friendly waitress, and starter served by chef, with a smile.

“Lovely terrace”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The food is tasty, the service is efficient. It's sort of ok for coeliacs. They are not very familiar with the condition but they would listen carefully and will tell you exactly what's in your food, a cooperative attitude which is not a given!
The terrace is lovely.
