I took my French friends to this restaurant when visiting them in the Loire. We commenced with a cocktail of the house. For the meal I chose the scalop starter, and veal main course. The selection of cheese was very good and the wine a red Sancerre was excellent. Service was efficient but low key. I could not fault the... More

Another trip to the Loire and another fabulous lunch at Restaurant du Grand Saint Benoit. We just keep coming back and have NEVER been disappointed. We have been here so many times, that they now recognize us. We almost feel like "regulars". We always make reservations in advance and they do ask that you reconfirm your reservation 24 hours in...

We had lunch here after visiting the cloisters and church in Saint Benoit. The weather was perfect to sit out on the patio overlooking the village. They offer several multi-course options, ranging from 18-24 euros. I started with the tuna tartare with avocado and hubby had the beef carpaccio. For our main course, I chose a veal loin that just...

I had a booking confirmed by email for last Saturday which they refused to honor. The booking was for 20.00hrs and we arrived at 19.50 hrs. Dismissive and rude staff. I had already travelled 400km that day and having taken care to have made the booking knowing that the nearest alternative was 8km away, this wasn't the welcome expected.

Although this restaurant presents itself as a gourmet establishment we did not find the food or the presentation anything other than average. nice linen and cutlery but we did feel that it was a bit more expensive than it deserved.

I don't know what to say that I haven't already said in previous years. The food here is worth a trip, and with staying close by in Sully-sur-Loire, we spoiled ourselves with eating here twice. The town has the very beautiful Abbey of Saint Benoit. The restaurant, while not looking like much from the outside, has a lovely inside dining... More

We found this restaurant in June of 2013, when we went to Saint Benoit to see the fabulous church where Saint Benedict (Benoit) is buried. We looked at the Michelin guide on our I-pad and they highly recommended the Restaurant du Grand Saint Benoit. The meal was fabulous, so we made a special trip in June of 2014 to go... More

I agree with earlier comments, especially Pipistrellus from Dublin. The menu offers an option of prix fixe or individual dishes. The menu is in french and the staff speak limited English (although much better than my very limited French), but they were very helpful and we figured it out. I had the Dorade (a whitefish) with a wonderful sauce and... More

We are staying 8km away in the much larger town of Sully-sur-Loire. Sully does not have a single restaurant to compare with this one in Saint Benoit. With only two reviews, I was unsure whether or not to trust the rating on Tripadvisor - but I can fully endorse the existing ratings and recommend this wonderful restaurant. They had some... More
