Made a reservation for this place having read reviews on all the top restaurants in Blois and to be fair also only those with a space at 24 hours notice. We had a table upstairs which I would say is not as desirable as at...More

Very very trad French food in a nice setting but in comparison, safe, standard dishes at a premium price with pretty patchy service.

Don't get me wrong, the service and the food were great; however I was there for lunch and all their options are gastronomic and very expensive. There are less expensive options in the area, but this was recommended to us. A very expansive wine selection,...More

Good morning "S. Austin G" We have taken note concerning your opinion. As you said, we are not a sandwich restaurant but a gourmet restaurant with one Michelin Star. That explains the prices. It's impossible to take one course directly and not all the menu....More

Description
The restaurant l'Orangerie du Chateau is opposite the fairy tale Chateau de Blois overlooking the beautiful facade of the castle. The orangery was built at the end of the 15th century during the reign of Louis XVII and Anne of Brittany and was surrounded by beautiful gardens. The orangery has become a fine dining restaurant offering a variety of menus priced from 39 to 85 euros per person as well as some of the finest French wines available. For tea and coffee lovers the restaurant also prides itself on the wide selection available. The menus are made up of traditional French dishes cooked and served to the very highest of standards and that change with the seasons.
