Went here with friends on Tuesday evening and it was busy. The food was unusual but in a good way, it was well presented and beautifully cooked. I had a black pudding,apple & Roquefort parcel to start, veal in cider cream sauce for main then sparkling strawberry soup for pudding - it was all delicious. The wine menu was extensive... More

Having just arrived in Azay-le-Rideau, our host warned us against most of the restaurants in the town. It's very much a tourist hot-spot (driven by the chateau) and there are lots of places catering to the many coach parties which arrive in the season. He gave us a short-list of those which he would recommend (possibly the ones owned by... More

What excellent service and top quality food! We had a fantastic meal here on our last night in Azay. The manager was really helpful explaining the ingredients( in French) for our various meat and gluten free requirements. We had sumptuous steaks, fish, snails and wine. Looking forward to our next visit.

We were in Azay-le-Rideau on a Sunday evening - not much was open but we were pleased to find Les Grottes open, and not too busy. Our menus: escargot provencal + medallion of veau, and noix de St Jacques and large piece of beef - the latter was easily enough for two. The 75cl pichet of Chinon was very reasonably... More

We arrived in Azay-Le-Rideau in the early evening, having driven down from the UK. Upon checking into the Hotel Biencourt, the proprietor recommended a couple of local restaurants, one of which was Les Grottes. Having passed it on the way in, we thought we'd give it a go. We were found a table with no fuss, and started tucking into... More

Our group of 6 dined here on our second night in Azay le Rideau. An interesting and atmospheric dining experience. It was busy, but the service was excellent and menu selection catered for all tastes. I had the escargots (12) which were quite good but they were topped with a very oily toasted cap and had tomato with the garlic... More

Returned to Les Grottes after four years away. The place has changed little with great rustic charm. The food is still of good quality and good value. The amuse-bouche was excellent and kept our party of six occupied whilst ordering. Starters were high quality from boudin noir -roquefort parcels to 'swinging' salads. Mains were all appreciated and enjoyed, the Ox... More

My wife and I enjoyed an evening meal in Les Grottes in late September - sitting outside in the late summer sun. The meal and the service were fine and it proved to be a most relaxing evening in pleasant surroundings.
