This place is fantastic. Roaring wood fire in the center of the dining room. Elegant professional service. My choice: delicate Foie gras de Canard and magnificent Coquille de St. Jacques. All the little extras made the lunch special. An amuse-bouche, welcoming glass of champagne, great dessert, wine of our choice at the table and coffee all for a 49€ menu.... More

Now this was a unique experience, having lunch in a cave! The surroundings as you can imagine were unique and very elegant. The food was good and service excellent. It actually was quite large once you got inside with multiple dining rooms. Our Salmon Beurre blanc followed by Baked Alaska was memorable!

This place looks great from the moment you step into the restaurant with a huge central fire place that's more than welcoming. We were given a small aperitif on the house to clean our palates before our meal. Most of us opted for the fixed 4 course menu & tried carpaccio de biche(melted in the mouth) & veloutes with Italian... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner here but were impressed with their fun manner of wine selection in La Cave...it is quite a few of the local wines, shown in their bottles and displayed in a room off the bar.

Would recommend this for the special ambience, the lovely fireplaces and good food. It has historical significance and interesting architecture.

I was with a tour group of 20, and we had a set menu at this restaurant. The setting was very nice, but I did not care for the food. The restaurant was fairly crowded but the service was fine. I saw a yummy looking cheese tray! Wish I could have had that.

The food was fine here but we found the restaurant was a little touristy for us - especially when a coach arrived. The coach party did not impinge on us but we the whole we don't like huge venues.

During a recent trip to France we stopped at this wonderful restaurant for lunch. Oo la la🍷awesome ambience and superb food. Excellent starter salad, pollack in buerre blanco sauce and parsley mousse. Dessert? What else but baked alaska. Also a winery and their wines are excellent. A must do if traveling in the Loire valley.

Very interesting setting deep in a cave on the banks of the Loire. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. And really good food! Lots of extra little touches. Reasonably priced. We loved it.

After visiting different wine-cellars, eating in a cave is really special. The restaurant has candlelightning but also normal light, rustic tables and chairs and appropriate table setting. The food was also very rustic french - in a very positive way! Portions good size and with wonderful flavours. Service was smooth and the winelist ample.

Thank LeJaSu
