Lovely lunch. Went for the fixed menu. Food very good, staff pleasant. Bit of a wait to begin with, but starter and dessert in particular made it ok.

Fantastic ambiance with a very well set out dining room and great views of the river. Food was ok to good, great chips! Unfortunately it was all spoilt with really bad arrogant service.

Go on a warm day not too late so you can take advantage of outdoor seating over the river. The portions are large so come hungry. I don't think there was much for children to eat.More

Description
We dreamed about it for a very long time: change frame without distorting the place and the soul of this created place 30 years ago to offer to our clientele a maximum of comfort and well-being ... .Pari successful! New decoration, based on pure materials such as wood, glass and metal bottom perfectly in the real decoration: the unique and impregnable panoramic view on the Loire! (PMR access and outer and internal wheelchairs) The creation of our second room allows at the moment d "to welcome groups and big one tables* (family meal, of work ...) while protecting the intimacy of the individual customers thanks to a window which can separate 2 dining rooms. Our living area of welcome(reception), conceived(designed) to take a glass(have a drink) while waiting for dinner guests will bring you one moment of relaxation. As for our new terrace, cut by the road and by the parking lot and moved forward on the Loire, she can only enchant you and share with you this unique(only) and magnificent view(sight). "L'EMBARCADERE " Restoring on the surface of the Loire ": forget one moment your stress and take advantage pleasantly and peacefully of the time(weather) which passes!
