Great location. Very friendly staff. Small restaurant. Gazpacho tasted like biting into a tomato but better. Salad du jour with magret de canard was truly memorable. They had sold out of the mousse framboise by he time we arrived but the gateau au chocolat pistace was fabulous. Pistachio cake with layers of chocolate mousse. Wish I had found this place... More

We ordered the goat cheese salad. The goat cheese was good, but the lettuce was "tired". The fries were very greasy. The rosé was nice for the price.

This restaurant was delicious. The menu is very small because everything is homemade...this also means that it is better to go early (for lunch or early dinner) because once they run out of something, there isn't any more! Luckily I was able to snag the last homemade lemon tart which was out of this world good! Make sure you reserve... More

This small restaurant is located in the center of the city by the Loire river. It offers top quality/ price ratio; the food is home made and well prepared . It has a drawback linked with it's sucess: the place was quite full and it took us too much time to get started with the first plate of the menu.... More

Food was really nothing out of the ordinary, not delicious or anything. The price was perhaps the best thing in this restaurant (it is cheap, we paid 40 euros for a dinner for two with wine) but that's about it. I don't understand why this is at the moment on the second place among the Blois restaurants - if you... More

During our short stay in Blois, we visited this establishment twice; first for lunch, and then, because of our pleasant experience, two days later for dinner. Although our command of the French language is minimal, the staff was very cooperative/helpful. The cook came out at least twice to ask how we were doing. In short, a fantastic experience.

French customers recieved the full menu while foreigners get to choose a limited assortment. Entrecote was fine, bruchetta ok. Pommes frites horrible and looked completely different form the ones on the other customers plates. Darker full of fat. Not for kids, no kids chair or offered. No kids menu.
