“Excellent dining”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We were staying at La Croix Blanche hotel and had three meals in this restaurant each time we were treated to super food, local wine was also very good. The foie gras is excellent, as is the cafe gourmand well worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Paris prices in the province, SLOW service.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Have eaten here before and vowed never to come back as the lunch portion was so mean (half a duck breast as main) but were invited here by friends and had a good meal in the evening though slow, and thought we would give them another chance. Never again! Though there were 3 waiters, we still waited half an hour for the starter (soup and pate) and then another half hour for main (stew) This is unacceptably slow, particularly when you see one waiter laying the tables in the restaurant for dinner and you and the THREE other tables are still waiting for their food! All this for 25 Euros.
Take our advice and pay a couple of Euros more and go to La Licorne for a proper meal or if you don't want to spend so much, buy bread at the local bakers and have a picnic in the grounds of the Abbey.

“Worth visiting”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We were staying in La Croix Blanche and so ate in the restaurant one evening.
The food was excellent, as was the Loire wine by the glass, which was selected by the manager for us to go with each course.
The staff are friendly helpful and efficient.

“bloody awful”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Service was scarce and indifferent. Steak cooked twice which took over 30 mins. and still was bloody...so bloody it sogged up the frites and salade. Really awful example of French food especially after the terrific crepes we had for lunch at a different restaurant. I know we're only tourists but we still appreciate cooked food and respectful service.

“Superb food! Don't miss the opportunity to dine here”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Unless you are on a shoestring budget, make a point at eating at this fine restaurant when visiting Abbaye Fontevraud. The dining room is spacious and very comfortable. My wife and I ate there 2 nights and both evenings had superb meals. The foie gras is highly recommended, as is the lamb. All deserts we tried were wonderful.
