Two tables: two different pleasures

– Simple pleasures at La Table des Fées

Its chic and shaded terrace is the ideal place to enjoy lunch to the sound of birds, surrounded by aromatic plants, under large parasols sheltered from the heatwave. La Table des Fées invites you for a family, friendly or romantic lunch. La Table des Fées serves home-made salads, soups, quiches and cakes made with vegetables from the kitchen garden or neighbouring farmers, and edible plants and flowers from the garden. Freshness guaranteed, on an affordable menu. La Table des Fées has the Clef Verte label and offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. La Table des Fées is open for lunch and is only accessible to visitors who have paid the entrance fee.


– And for refined gourmets : Le Jardin Secret, an intimate gourmet restaurant

Under the guidance of Italian Chef Andrea Modesto, former second-in-command to Joël Robuchon, the dishes are an ode to plants and to the Loire Valley, sublimated by the scents of the Chef’s native Italy. The menu at Jardin Secret changes with the seasons, inspired by the gardens of Le Rivau. Le Jardin Secret is open from Tuesday evening to Sunday evening. Visits to the gardens and castle are free for guests of Le Jardin Secret.

Our own production

Organic vegetables from our kitchen garden and wild edible plants from our gardens enrich our recipes and production, adding little-known flavors to our restaurant dishes. We produce organic soups using rare pumpkins. We also produce four Chinon wines. Soups and wines are served in our two restaurants, and are available for sale in our boutique.
