Diner at La Roseraie, Chenonceaux

It was hot when we arrived at the hotel, so we went for a swim at the swimming pool. We then changed and arrived in time for dinner. The restaurant was amazing. We decided to go with the €27 menu and they made pasta with vegetables at our son's request. We both chose the onion soup (exquisite), followed by lamb rissole (pieces of lamb were placed more like a piece of art rather than a plate) served with confit of onions, green vegetables, mushroom tulip and spinach flan, this was spectacular and the taste couldn't be described; it was so good. My husband went with a creme brulee and our son had my desert and he chose ice cream. All accompanied by a very excellent local wine, such a spectacular meal for under €90. It was the best dinner of all our vacations. At 9pm, the clientele was mostly French families and couples. One family was celebrating a birthday.
We stayed at La Roseraie in June 2010. The owners have changed since, so you may want to consult Tripadvisor for most recent reviews.
