We were walking around Chartres and chanced upon Tire Bouchon. Were they open yes of course, such a friendly welcome. Amazing food and sensibly priced. Lyonaise style but what made it special as the atmosphere and of course the post meal drink!

This is a pretty rare find. A Lyonnnais style restaurant in Chartres. The menu is simple, but the food is excellent. And the wine list is impressive. Try to get a table downstairs. Highly recommended.

This is a little gem of a family run restaurant, situated a stone's throw from the Cathedral. Service was welcoming and helpful. I chose an andouillette, a sausage made from the intestines of a pig. It was superb. I cannot recommend this place too strongly.

Very flavorful meal with kind (and patient) staff. Pork and potatoes superb ... best meal in France so far. Very close to cathedral yet still excellent!

We've been going to Chartres for years either on our way to the south or on the way back but never found this restaurant before. It's tucked away down a side street near the cathedral and is completely enchanting. They do a 14.50 euro lunch...More

Excellent lunch at a restaurant that appears popular with the local residents. The food was exceptional. If you want to enjoy real French food while visiting the cathedral in Chartres, O Tire Bouchon is conveniently located and probably your best choice.
