For my last meal in Chinon, I decided to eat at Bistrot de la Place, right below my hotel room. They offer a three-course menu for 16.90 euros. Everything was delicious (tomato-and-mozzarella croustillant with side salad, salmon in sorrel sauce, fresh fruit with berry sorbet)...More

We had a delicious dinner here. We were outside and the local fish perch dish was yummy. The location is great and the service was attentive.

Typical French bistro. Friendly servants , Great terrace . I highly recommend the "Vauvray petiante " for 3.90 euro a glass and the charcuterie plate . Close to the Fortress Jeanne D'Arc .

Early season evening meal during stay in Chinon. Good meal, nice wine, great service and friendly enough to allow a couple of small dogs to sit quietly under the table. Thoroughly recommended.

Food quality a bit poor, and the same for wines. From outside the restaurant it looks interesting, but unfortunately the feeling is not confirmed while eating. The worse aspect that I faced was to digest after the dinner.

It's a great people watching location but food was a little disappointing. We both had menu du jour with a pichet of wine and it could have been better.

It was difficult to pick a spot as there are a number of bistros around the square but we weren’t disappointed with our choice. We got a good table near the fountain under the umbrellas (it was a very warm afternoon). We had 3 Café...More
