Food was good, not to die for. Prices were reasonable, but not great. Service was very friendly, and the location was very nice: outdoor seating in a cobblestone pedestrian only street.

On a last minute quite late mission to eat in Orleans before heading back we chanced upon this delightful hostelry , the atmosphere , the food , the camaraderie all superb . What struck me was the vast age range and styles of the clientele . The staff were great too - all in all a good spot TT

We were surprised to find so many places closed on a Monday night (because of working both days of the weekend?) but found this place near the cathedral and we were not disappointed. Good food, well cooked, decent house wine and nice staff. Place was packed by 8.30pm which could be because so many places were closed but we prefer... More

My husband took my son and I to lunch here. Although he spoke no French the service was great and we were readily catered to. The food was very good. I had lamb while both my husband and son had beef. The desserts did not disappoint however the most memorable was their sauce au poivre. Never tasted another sooo tasty!... More

The quality of the food and its presentation is excellent. It was a very good experience and I recommen this restaurant, even... More

Quite a busy place, we were lucky to fit in running from the pouring rain. Already smelled the seafood the day before walking by so I thought it will be allright. Finally took a salad and waffle for dessert. It was delicious. The only negative is that the salad was full with meat. Normally when you order a salad you... More

Stumbled upon this place after visiting Chambord. There are a few restaurants lines up on this street right off of the main square and it seemed lively enough. We sat at a table that was technically inside but since the front was completely open it was as if we were on the sidewalk. Again, convivial enough, but as soon as... More

Leisurely walk in town and came across this restaurant. Fish and chips were the initial draw, but everything was great. Staff also good and very attentive. Worth a look even if you sit inside. Too sit outside better get there before 7pm.

My husband and I had a great meal here. Located off the main square in Orleans. We had 2 main courses 2 desserts 2 soft drink fall for €42! Recommend the carbonara, lamb chops with chunky chips. Dessert menu was great... I wanted to try them all. Eventually chose the moelleau au chocolat and it was cooked to perfection.
