I have to be fair and say that I've reviewed this place every time I've eaten here which is normally a couple of times a year. Why do I go back? because I still rate it as one of the best places to eat in Chinon and the local wine list is excellent.

My first visit here. I was impressed both by the precision of the food and the quality of the wine list. The staff were efficient and friendly, even though we arrived late thanks to Metro delays in Paris. The restaurant is in a charming old building and has been created with imagination and flair (matching the cooking). A truly excellent... More

Nice try when it comes to the service staff: We arrived 10 minutes before the offical opening hours and the door was already open hence we came in ... immediately we were, in an unfriendly and arrogant manner, told that we have to wait out side ( it was reallyreally cold). So we waited the 10 minutes and came in... More

The food is absolutely delicious! We have chosen different set menus and have been really impressed. The veal and beef for main courses were cooked to perfection and the sauce was so tasty complimenting the meat so well. The wine recommended by the hostess was brilliant. The desserts were very nice too. In general, we have greatly enjoyed our evening... More

Back to les Annees Trente after some disapointing experiences with the service in 2015, not at the level of the cuisine. Invited by a friend for lunch we had a wonderful meal and a good service for a very reasonable price considering the quality of the table setting and impeccable white table cloth. Highly recommended again for its cuisine and... More

Very good experience in Chinon, slightly surprised at the lack of English language for the area but didn't spoil the night. Very good meal much better than the average although we always enjoy being in Chinon or Samur, generally about 4 times a year. We thought we would try the top 4 in Chinon according to TripAdvisor and this was... More

Had a great dinner! It is important that you make a reservation as the restaurant could be full for the night. Great food, very good service. The prices are a little higher than the other, but surely worths it. I got a foie gras scalope and duck with pear. Amazing!

The food here was amazing from start to finish. Every dish we ordered was delicious. The amuse bouche was delicious. Imaginative, different, delicious. Lovely atmosphere and friendly helpful staff despite a slight language barrier. Totally worth it.

A cold and windy Saturday night in lovely Chinon, France. With all shops and restaurants in Xmas lights. Beautiful. One of the local shop owners suggested the 'Les Annees 30' restaurant in the Rue Voltare. Spot on...... after a full day of travel, wine tasting and wine buying. Open fireplace. The Foie Gras melted in my mouth and the Coquilles... More

My wife and I have frequented Les Annees 30 several times a year during the last 9 years. This is by far our favourite restaurant in Chinon. Karine has made us most welcome in this lovely restaurant run by her and her husband. The food is French. The food is wonderful, as have been the changing staff over the years.... More
