A lovely little quirky restaurant tucked aside the magnificent Cathedral. It has only about 8 tables that aren't bookable - 'arrive early and you will be fine' the really helpful staff informed us when we called in mid-afternoon. A nice selection of rustic french country food on the menu - all of which were really appealing. For mains we had... More

This was a welcome meal in a welcoming place. Excellent local food especially on a cold autumn night. The Latin is excellent as is the hen. Quirky decor and friendly patron. English menu available if you want. Would certainly return.

This place is small and a bit hard to find but worth the effort. If you face the western side (main door) of the cathedral, go left to the edge of the plaza, then left again down the narrow alley you will see the entrance on your right. The restaurant makes every attempt to use locally grown food so everything... More

This is the best restaurant we ate at in Chartres. The Poulet au Pot is a house specialty. It is delicious. A clear broth and lots of fresh vegetables compliment the chicken perfectly. Come early if you want this signature dish as they do sell out. Great service and an amiable owner on premises. All good.

Our first night in France and we drive from airport to Chartres for the night. As we walked around near the cathedral we found this quaint and interesting restaurant. Reasonable prices and delicious food. I enjoyed the Chartres special - picture of my chicken meal. All locally grown vegetables are used. Nice atmosphere. English menu and friendly and helpful staff.

Delicious, traditional French food cooked and served by family partnership, warm welcome and relaxing ambience. Loved the quirky decor and lighting, we ate at a table made from an old sewing machine stand! Enjoyed all our food, especially the rabbit with prunes and the pear tart with cassis ice cream. Situated round the corner from the cathedral, very reasonable prices... More

Visited Le Pichet tonight with my husband and having read reviews was expecting a lovely meal, but not to be sadly.The menu is very tiny and very limited. I chose scallops and it was apparently a changed recipe of 3 fish.I decided to go with poulet instead and my husband with boeuf bourginon, neither of which were great. Boeuf was... More

We were disappointed with the menus of approx 10 restaurants, in the city. They seemed to have the same 5 or 6 generic dishes plus one other. Le Pichet 3 was the exception. We tried for a table on Sunday night but it was full (and it's quite a big place). On Monday night, we had the last table on... More

This quaint place is in an old building a block from the cathedral. The food is excellent and the wait staff are superb! They are know for their rabbit but were all out so we got the boef bourginon which was fabulous! Deserts are to die for!

After visiting the Cathedral we wanted lunch in the neighborhood, but away from all the hustle and bustle of the area. This quaint restaurant is actually just below the Cathedral on a side street and within a five minute walk. We had the option to eat inside or out and choose outside, as the day was beautiful. Xavier served all... More
