Another Super Restaurant Find

It was thirteen months ago I wrote about driving to Tours to start looking seriously at bathroom fittings. Yesterday we drove to Tours again, this time to start seriously looking at kitchens, and whilst were in the area we took the opportunity to check out a restaurant I had found mention of online, with a view to using it occasionally on one of our tours.

It's another winner!! The restaurant may look slightly unpreposessing, but as we have discussed before, looks can be misleading. Being just outside Chambrey le Tours near the Château of Candé it is easy enough to get to when you're shopping for household stuff and the big bonus is that everything is á-la-maison, unlike many of the meals you find in lunchtime restaurants.

rollmops in mustard sauce for entrée
Yesterday for lunch I had a buffet entré, pork cheeks and boiled potatoes, cheese, dessert and coffee, washed down with a ¼ litre of chinon red. Susan had the same, but skipped the cheese and coffee. The damage? €14 for me, and €12 for Susan. The meal was a real belt stretcher, beautifully cooked and full of taste.

This is a great little restaurant - just the right level of conversation, a parking lot full of white vans, good food, friendly service and great price. If you're ever here (or nearby) we can't recommend it highly enough.
