Fodor's Review

A hanging shop sign adorned with a painted unicorn beckons you to this pretty-as-a-picture 18th-century town-house restaurant on Fontevraud's idyllic Allée Sainte-Catherine. Past a flowery garden and table-adorned terrace, tiny salons glow with happy folks feasting on some of the best food in the region: dishes like Loire salmon, boned quail, Triple Sec soufflé, and langoustine ravioli make most diners purr with contentment.

A must if you are in Fontevraud

They clearly deserve their Michelin 1 star. The type of traditional French food that you cant easily find in Paris. Very heavy of course. You wont find steak here, mainly game (hare, duck etc.) or things like veal sweetbreads. I had the dos de colvert (duck) and it was fantastic. Service is impecable, but as with all high end French restaurants, it can be overly clinical. Cant speak much about ambience as the place was almost empty at lunch time.
