We visited as part of a group of 30 which meant the seating was very cramped. Our meal was a set menu of local fare including rillettes, mushrooms etc. which was tasty but not exciting. The wine served was Saumur rouge and very ordinary. The setting was lovely, overlooking the river, but a pity the sun did not shine. Overall... More

The Best of this place is coming from its location: a well remodernated boat, finely decorated with good taste, on Loire river....beautiful experience dining with fisherman passing during sunset. It could be very romantic, too. Good wine, Food is ok, good choice of typical dishes...be careful though if you dont like giblets. Excellente tartelette tatin and delicate mushroom. You can... More

This is a barge, a nice barge I have to say, situated on the Loire. We had the lunch time menu, which is the best time to eat in my opinion, you usually get good quality at a cheaper price than in the evening, so we had a lovely lunch, not really much more to say, it was a lovely... More

Location is all this place has going for it. It is a boat restaurant on the river. When we arrived we were restricted to the a la carte menu. Noticing that whilst the hostess spoke French, she was English I decided to take the advantage of getting the menu translated exactly. She in essence told me not to choose one... More

We were here for Sunday lunch last year and decided to come again this year. Good job we were early because it was soon filled with locals, always a good sign I think. You are on a barge so the facilities are limited and so is the menu. My gut reaction is that overall it was not as good as... More

This restaurant is situated on a barge on the Loire. The views of the river, are understandably wonderful. The food is good and hearty - nothing too extravagant and the staff well attentive. Some unusual local specialities and a good wine list. The pricing is very good for what you get. A large group of locals were sat at the... More

We had some excellent wine and local produce (meats and eel's. When we were there the other diners were mostly local but we had an equally warm welcome from the host. Excellent service. Very highly recommended

In the pouring rain we slid down the quayside to this restaurant, mainly because nothing else was open in November. Food was decent and the hosts were fun. Not fine dining by any means, but good all the same. Lots of certificates on the walls from the cheese council, the omelette society, etc - quite funny really :-)
