This attractive restaurant is run by Florence and Jean-Marie Gervais and very well established with locals. Florence runs the front of house with efficiency, while Jean-Marie rattles the pots and pans. In a warm dining room, this is equally a good place for a serious evening dinner or a fast, excellent value lunch for €18. Very good wine list with a wide range of Chinons, including from the Charles Joguet estate, which is just across the road.

Useful information: Menus: €18 (weekday lunch); €29 evening menu or own choice from à la carte. Closed Sunday evenings and all day Mondays.
