Lovely restaurant. Quality and upmarket. Owner personally oversees everything. Excellent starters and very good main courses. Desserts disappointing. Menu prices OK but extras such as drinks, bread, water very expensive meaning overal bill is a rad too much at the end of the day.

This restauarant is on a small island in La Vienne, just before it joins La Loire. The local wines are designated "Chinon". We were impressed by the service. My standard question was about the local dishes and the local wines. The sommelier knew his stuff with the Chinon whites. The local river speciality sandre, zander, or if you like Sandra,... More

This is a wonderful Michelin restaurant in a very tiny French town. The ambience is wonderful......a walk along the river with a champagne prior to lunch or dinner is terrific. They never rush you...it is a wonderful experience. The food is amazing. We had the Bresse chicken which was great. A wonderful wine list.....and they are very helpful to make... More

A most relaxing lunch time was spent in this excellent restaurant. The menu is a mixture of the well know and the adventurous. We ate 'en terrace' facing the river. The service was very professional being attentive but unobtrusive. The food was well thought out, very well presented and delicious. Two of us took the set menu and two went... More

We had a lovely evening! Nice food, and nice wines that we didn't know yet. Kids menu was ok with chicken breast that was supermoist and soft. Lovely potatoe-tower with duck. Le sandwich was superb .

Was recommended but disappointed - the steak was really pretty awful and small portions and expensive..Not impressed and they could do a lot better. The atmosphere was not inviting - cold and unwelcoming sadly.

Enjoying a lovely riverbank location this restuarant offers a selection of Popular french " gourmet" dishes from a selection of set dinner menu choices. Each course of our dinner was interspersed with a sequence of small tasting plates which showcased the kitchen's skills. Our sommelier recommended a very enjoyable local rose wine. Our food was full of flavour and presented... More

We stopped here by chance while visiting the charming church in Tavant nearby. Probably the best restaurant in our 3 week trip to France. Great location on the island in the river with views to match. Excellent food with good relaxed service. Highly recommended.
