Thought the fish was very good. Terre et Mer also very satisfying. Good atmosphere and wine choice. Maitresse was unimpressed with our lack of interest in cheese course (we were too full!) but a good fun night had by all

Really enjoyed the fish soufflé and my wife had superb cod with black pudding and red wine sauce. Simply stunning.

Fresh food, excellent prepared and very tasty. The seats outside could do with a bit more shading for lunch especially since it may take a while until food is served. But definitely worth the wait and with 28.50€ excellent value

Last evening in Chinon we decided to eat out at L'Oceanic. We were pleasently surprised by the food - the ceviche of Dorade was superb! Higly recommended if you are in for fish.
