French cuisine

40 Rue Saint-Lubin - Blois

It is a sixteenth century house situated in the heart of old Blois, halfway to the castle and the Loire, between the old abbey St. Laumer (now St. Nicolas church), and the fountain Louis XII, you will discover Le Castelet. Marta, Gerard and the staff will welcome you and advise you.

Feel free to also request information on the area, they will be happy to guide you to the most interesting events or the best wine producers.

In the kitchen, the chef Andrée assisted by Jeremy interprets a menu that changes every season, from fresh produce bought daily.

Inspired by Touraine, sometimes with a medieval touch (a violin of Ingres boss), this cuisine combines originality and authenticity of flavors.

We put special emphasis on using local products, from practices that respect the environment... and our health.

Reform meats, eggs come from cage farming, vegetables grown above ground etc... are strictly banned. As against the well-behaved dogs are welcome.

No one is excluded at Castelet you under 10? The junior is your menu, you are a vegetarian, is for you, you are unsure of your flat, you decide at the last moment if you take or not a cheese and dessert? The important thing is that you are well and that you want to come back later.

Customer reviews

September 2020
Very busy restaurant on a Monday evening, even so made to feel very welcome. Good choice of menus with a mix of traditional French food and a few little Asian surprises as well. Good quality food served by efficient and very friendly staff. Prices just right. If we return to Blois we would definitely come back here to eat again.

The food was of outstanding quality and so delicious. Service was great. My family and I had a lovely dining experience. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Loire valley. You will not be disappointed. Only disappointment may occur if you do not make a reservation and they are unable to accommodate you.

The guys that served us were excellent.. The food was fabulous particularly the pork and the fish.. And all very reasonably priced. The wine was excellent. Highly recommended

Thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the ambiance though my husband was put off by the fact that they allowed dogs- three dogs in a room that sat 20 people in total. Not to detract at all from the quality of the food and service however.

Excellent. At the time we went it was full of French clients, which is always a good sign. The staff were very nice and did not display any sign of straining to understand our terrible french although our waiter was quite willing to speak English. The food was excellent. We will definitely go back again if we have the chance.
