Le Musee anime du Vin et de la Tonnellerie, Chinon

(75+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Entertaining, fun, and not for the faint of heart, Le Musee anime du Vin et de la Tonnellerie is a spirited restaurant that presents animated depictions of winemaking and cooking with an eclectic sense of humor. The eccentric and wise-cracking staff add to the offbeat ambience.

Under the vaulted ceiling in the 15th century cellar, you'll find surprising collections, including antique wine barrels, cooking utensils, and animated wax figures illustrating the secrets of winemaking. Bakers bake all of the signature cakes and fouées in a wood-burning oven, and chefs create tantalizing medieval culinary favorites for you to try, including goose rillettes and escargot butter.

  • Place very warm, not at all disappointed by the food, especially the wine, the Manager (or Dede the bakery) is a very nice person, funny with great anecdote. It's a very friendly place that I would recommend to anyone for the restaurant or the Museum.

  • Regular at the scene since opening, once again not disappointed! Yes, the unique menu card is simple, but good. But go especially to David grist for the atmosphere of hotel atypical, phenomenal when the boss and in shape! If you are looking to "Rabelaisian" in the dictionary, you will see the photo of Dede!

  • Nice typical restaurant of chinon with beautiful exposed beams and wood fire. The owner is a 'character' to him alone, very friendly although somewhat "familiar" but very funny. We have got acquainted with other people and the atmosphere is lively with the owner says "dede the bakery". Very good evening. On the other hand there are card offer at the price of 20 euros (1/4) of wine. This is a bit expensive for the dishes namely: rillettes, home, House, fouées to will snail butter, white beans simmered and winemaker pie. All is OK, but it lacks a meat or fish. Go for the atmosphere.
