The menu is predominantly galettes and salads with a daily special. It is not a large place and booking might be a good precaution on a weekend. Our food, while simple, was tasty, hot and well presented. There is a reasonable wine list - it doubles up as a wine shop with a very good selection of local wines.

We went there after visiting the chateau. It's less than 5 minute walk from there and located in a pretty district with restaurants. We got a plate of two types of cheese, salad and a potato and a plate of a sandwichish food with ham and cheese inside. They both were tasty. I expected that the cheeses would have been cooked in some ways so it was a little disappointing that I got cheeses just like what you can get at supermarket. The taste itself was fresh.

We ate well at L'Epicerie after a day at the Villandry garden. The restaurant is full of the character one might expect in an old farm and the greeting and service generally was friendly and in our case attentive. But we felt later arrivals were served less well; it seemed an age for orders to be taken and some other customers seemed a bit unhappy.
