Very nice restaurant, annexed to the same name hotel, located on the north side of Charité-sur-Loire; since we spent one night at the hotel, we enjoyed the dinner as the half-board option.
The restaurant is not very huge, having 25 to 30 seats; it’s colored, fresh-looking, with old and very beautiful photos of literature celebrities on the walls.
The waitress was young, very kind, friendly, and meantime fast and efficient, being alone to take care of all the restaurant guests.
The cuisine proposed by the lady-chef was mainly Regional, therefore, as per my experiences, very good.
There was the opportunity to choose between several set menus (from 17 to 33 Euro), as well as the à-la-carte option; my wife and I tried the “gourmand menu” (21 Euro) and the “gourmet menu” (25 Euro).
I tasted aspic de ratatouille (ratatouille in jelly) with oregano and lemon mayonnaise, then pork cheeks in red wine, with Cassis (blackcurrant) sauce and creamy potatoes (excellent!).
My wife enjoyed a lamb meatball with toasted almonds, mint and coriander fresh sauce, asparagus gratin and creamy potatoes.
We both finished with crème brûlée as dessert.
As drinks, we tested a glass of local wines Pouilly Fumé and Côte de Charité rosé, both excellent.
To render our dinner even more enjoyable, some soft background music.
The quality/price ratio was definitely high, a side benefit to a delicious dinner and a beautiful time.
