This food was elevated significantly from the farmhouse. Local ingredients with interesting combination. Lots of flavour and beautiful presentation. All of the staff were wonderful but the lady/owner who takes your order truly stands out. She is so lovely, taught me some more french and told us all about the food and a little about herself. Wonderful experience. We went... More

We went for lunch as a family of eight and this was one of our favorite meals on our trip. It is on a farm on a small road so you feel like you are experiencing a true farm to table experience. The food was delicious and very authentic. It was a chilly day and we enjoyed the charming decor,... More

Went there for lunch with friends living in the area. The place is very nice in a bucolic surrounding. The menu is rather scarce and you need to order all your meal (including desserts) immediately. All the food was excellent and for the main courses worth mentioning the chicken with curry and the veal. Desserts were also very good. Price... More

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise in the middle of a farm nearby Villandry. It had a lovely and charming fireplace warming the salon. Both ladies were extremely gentle, nice and spoked very good English. They explained to us the menu and their suggestions were amazing. The food was regional with extraordinary local products. The pheasant was outstanding. We... More

My husband and I loved this place. The dining rooms are full of character and exactly what you picture when you think of dining in the French countryside. The meal was excellent, although to be honest we never had a bad meal in the 17 days we spent in France. DH said the starter, Foie Gras done three different ways,... More

A lovely welcome and very personal service on the 2 evenings we dined there. Beautifully prepared French cuisine, very reasonably priced wine, a roaring log fire and even excellent mint tea to round off the meal!

The owner & wait staff were very personable and efficient. Has a good deal of ambiance. They have menus in English. The menu is limited but has enough variety to please. The lamb dish was excellent.

We lunched here after visiting Villandry. As we were in the middle of a day's cycling we didn't fancy a three course set menu and were happy to be able to choose lighter items from a reasonably menu. We had a tourangelle salad and an omelette with a side of french fries. All very tasty and served by a most... More

This was a wonderful place to eat. We visited this lovely auberge in the countryside not far from Chateau Villandry where we had spent the afternoon. The service and food were both excellent and the setting very nice. We felt really relaxed and at home, even though we only know a few french words between us. Not only did the... More
