Tucked away in a corner of Chinon, the chef here knows his meats. The menu is simple but with good choices and starts at a very sensible price. The courtyard garden is a wonderful place to eat looking up at the fortress ramparts and the town gardens.
There is a covered outide area and a large interior room, but outside is definately best. Very helpful staff and speaking multiple languages they really make a difference. Just the best meal and location and tremendous value for money.

We wandered all around Chinon looking for a typical French restaurant. We found this little place where you eat outside in the small garden. Lovely setting. Coq au vin is superb!

We discovered this restaurant while heading for an adjacent recommended restaurant which proved to be closed for the night. Anyhow we ventured in and were pleased we did as it proved to be very enjoyable experience. We ate outside in the garden area on a nice warm evening which added to the enjoyment. The friendly service, food quality and surrounding were perfect. I would say that perhaps the bill was a bit higher than we would have expected but then that has been our experience everywhere in France this year with just one exception. Compared with last year we found that bills were about 10-15% more expensive.

Cute little garden spot lured us in after we walked to check out the place next door that's higher rated on TripAdvisor. The food was decent, but really was overpriced compared to what we've had at other places here in the Loire. The cot was pretty good, but the canard was very overcooked. The desserts appeared to be a total afterthought and I wish we had skipped them altogether.

We had two dinners in this restaurant which at least in our experience were visited mainly by French costomers, a little out of the touristy route of small Chinon. It was not very warm, so the 'jardin' was closed, and the restaurant inside is a long narrow alley, not all that inviting. The food is quite ok, but not very special. Generous, however. The faux filet is quite a meal, and the wine list boasts many good wines of the region. The service was quite friendly, but lacked that special touch one would expect in a typical french resto. A good place to have a decent meal, but not for a romantic outing or for something special.
