Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this chic and relaxed restaurant features a host of assets, starting with the lush, shaded terrace at the edge of the woods that extends out to a group of small Zen-inspired ponds. As for Patrick Giraux’s cuisine, it delicately celebrates noble ingredients (lobster, truffle) and cleverly plays with the classics of bourgeois cuisine by adding a few very personal touches. The wine list, presented by region, devotes an important share of its attention to the organic wines of the Loire.
