Dinner options

Tourism information leaflet ( ca-2015-2016.pdf) - from page 48 on, provides a long updated list of restaurants and bars (stating average prices and opening days). Sorry, only available in French.

In the center of Orléans, in Rue Ste Catherine, Rue de Bourgogne, Place de Loire and Place du Châtelet, there's a large offer of all sorts of French and foreign specialities .

Here also 2 links to a list of restaurants. (Maybe better to check opening days/availability before, specially on Sunday and Monday evening)

on Wednesday night, Festival de Loire is starting, so there will be plenty of open-air restaurants and other opportunities to enjoy typical /regional food.
