Where to eat in the loire valley

In and around Vouvray

Les Gueules Noires

in Vouvray (Vallée Coquette)


You'd like to eat in a picturesque place while staying in the Loire Valley? This restaurant located in a cave in Vouvray is absolutely unique. Both the locals and the tourists love it! In summer, enjoy the lovely terrace with its view on the vineyard; in winter, the former dwelling in the rock with its fireplace will be like paradise.

No menu here, but several starters, main courses and desserts to choose from and which change according to what David and Catherine, the owners, find at local markets and producers'. They only cook fresh and seasonal products to prepare delicious ad original dishes.

Lots of Loire wines - especially those produced in the Vouvray area - are available on the wine list.

French cuisine prepared by Stéphanie, the chef, with seasonal and fresh products. A nice restaurant, in a bright and elegant room, in the centre of Vouvray.

Lovely staff to help you choose from the different courses offered every day.

A wide choice of Loire Valley wines, and more precisely of Vouvray wines.

If you don't want to spend too much money, you may choose the menu offered at lunch time, that is based on local products and changes every day.
