Been to chinon many times. Food was okay though why you can't do a burger with no cheese and no tomato ketchup I don't know. Had to ask for water and had to ask twice to get the bill. Eat somewhere else.More

We were late for lunch at 14.40 but they still served from their all day menu: basically burgers, salads and steak. However, nothing was basic about the burger Sicilian. Absolutely delicious, although pricey at €15.

Our first dinner in Chinon left a slight sour taste for us. Although the food was enjoyable the first to attend to us was quite rude and abrupt. I know it's difficult when one is busy but a smile and friendly tone can break down...More

Wonderful meal, steak and frites for two of us and lamb stew for another. Everything was excellent with a nice bottle of wine. Very good service!

This is a regular for us when we are Chinon, great coffee (as you would expect seeing as it's in France) and the position is great for "people watching". They also do food but as yet we've not eaten here, it does look good. Service...More

Not easy to find an open restaurant on a Sunday in Chinon, and ended up here purely by chance. Service was friendly, food dull and un-inspired. Enough said....

We dined here recently and the decor is classy and refined. The service was good but Unfortunately the food was pretty average and way overpriced. We were disappointed.
