My wife and I ate at this restaurant in May 2016. We were in a party of 80 guests all connected with the twinning association of Vern D'Anjou with our own village of Tatsfield (UK) The moment we entered the restaurant the atmosphere was electric. Every place setting was brilliantly set out and when the food arrived it was delicious.... More

It was a Monday night in off season France and I was treated to a splendid evening meal from the a la cartel menu. The food was nothing short of fabulous and the service attentive and helpful. This was a wonderful discovery.

Elegant dining room with a young chef arranging beautiful dishes. They use local producers and have a great selection of local wines.

I wanted to find a rather good local restaurant to take some Australian friends who were visiting me in the Loire and this was on my shortlist. So, the week before their arrival I booked a table for two in order to appreciate first-hand the dining experience. We arrived a little early after changing in the car rather than driving... More

What a tremendous meal. Staying with friends at chateau close by and visited with our hostess. I have to say that from start to finish I could not fault a thing. This place deserves Michelin stars and is a must for visitors in the Loire valley. We will definitely be back

The restaurant is located on the opposite side of the road to the church, with a reasonably well signposted car park. Tables are well spaced apart and there is a small terrace. There is a wide price range of menus. My wife had the menu du jour, which was reasonably priced and very good, but the sauce with the main... More

We got the tip for the Pigeon Blanc from the hostess at our B&B. From the outside it doesn't look much, but inside the restaurant is unexpectedly stylish. It is said to have been in the hands of the same family for at least 3 generations The first night there we had the menue at 20 Euros, which was 3... More
