Restaurant let down by staff who are uninterested in serving. With one notable exception but of course this one person couldn't make up for the poor service overall.
Loire red wine needs to be served very slightly chilled, but both bottles we ordered were warm.
Overall, the food was good-ish, but unfortunately the shortcomings put me off returning, and I enjoy eating in restaurants on holiday & at home.
Sorry that my review is not more positive.

It took an hour to get water. We received a bottle of wine after an hour and a half but they did not open it for 20 minutes. We did not receive food for two hours. There must have been a total staff meltdown. Do not go here!

A very attractive restaurant nicely decorated and with friendly and attentive staff. Service was well carried out and we both ate well from the Menu fixe and enjoyed the food which was well cooked and served with an eye to the 'look' of the plate. Thank you

Our experience was confusing at the start, as we had to check in at hotel reception for our dinner reservation, but everything after that was great. The food was creative but still emphasized taste over presentation. Our main course of chicken with garden peas and butter beans was one of my favorites of our entire trip--bright and fresh and delicious. Service including the cheese course took about two hours, but it was a lovely way to spend a summer evening, watching the sun set over the village. Highly recommended.

It's OK. Nothing exceptional. The price is too high considering what you get on a plate and in comparison to other restaurants in the same area.
