We had lunch at Au Bon Vin de Touraine Le Chalet when we visited the Chateau. The plat du Jour with two courses ,house wine and coffee was not expensive at 48 Euro for two. Service was prompt and efficient and the decor was clean...More

Should have read the reviews before trying this place. There is nothing positive we could say about this restaurant. The staff were indifferent and the food and service poor. The cutlery and table did not look very clean. The food orders were all mixed up...More

I have been eating in France for many years and this restaurant is far from being good. It is easy to see why the location attracts dinners, being just a short walk from the Chateau. It is also close to the Hotel Biencourt, which is...More
