A family run bar / restaurant which is always nice to return to as they always make you feel welcome. My wife and I have returned here again and again and will no doubt return in the future. Thank you for making us so welcome.

Eaten here a few times both set menu and a la carte. Food always good. Service excellent. Very passionate about local wines and if you enjoy one they will sell you some.

Quick and friendly service. Tables arranged for a party of six in the shade on a hot day. Modules Frites, okay. Steak chips fine. No problem to switch chips for a green salad. Would go again.

Daily menu which offers only a few options but if they appeal to you then you can be assured that the preparations will be excellent for the price. I was very impressed

We used to have a coffee here each morning when we were in Chinon. A very clean establishment with friendly and courteous staff. It gets very busy here so go early. The owner is charming and greets everyone with a smile. He jokingly chastised my wife for ordering "le meme chose" instead of "la". The food is prepared to order... More
