Lovely location near Chartres Cathedral. We ordered that day's lunch menu. Everything was excellent. The wait staff was outstanding and the interiors were quite comfortable. As good, if not better, than our meals in Paris.

Excellent food, friendly service, and all in the shadow of the Cathedral. We had the Price Fixe Menu which included a large Salade de Chevre Chaud, Beef (cooked perfectly) with Frites, and tart de pommes for dessert. Wine was reasonably priced and delicious.

Charming place with excellent food and friendly service. Right by Chartres Cathedral, but on the quiet side, not so touristed.

Good location next to the gorgeous Cathedral with outside tables. We selected the classic award-winning pâté de Chartres, beetroot carpaccio, tuna and quinoa salad with pâté, prawns with penne and grand marnier and chocolate mousses. The food was average at best. I was disappointed. The...More
