We arrived in Chartres after a long flight. Our hostess, Valerie at Maison Ailleurs, suggested Le Pichet 3 for lunch. It was a fun place with great food that was presented beautifully. It is a limited menu, but the food is very fresh and well...More

Open kitchen, limited starters and limited main dishes mean fresh products freshly made. The Henry IV chicken was a delight and the boeuf bourguignon was also a hit. Add Very reasonable prices and we conclude that it will be very hard to beat this recipe....More

This was a welcome meal in a welcoming place. Excellent local food especially on a cold autumn night. The Latin is excellent as is the hen. Quirky decor and friendly patron. English menu available if you want. Would certainly return.

This place is small and a bit hard to find but worth the effort. If you face the western side (main door) of the cathedral, go left to the edge of the plaza, then left again down the narrow alley you will see the entrance...More
