Fine-dining restaurant
The Orangerie

Introduction to the restaurant

Upon marrying Henry II, Catherine de’ Medici introduced a magnificent gastronomic wealth to French cuisine: a veritable alliance of Italy and France.

Since the Renaissance, with its lavish parties, the art of entertaining, of great cuisine and refinement have been a tradition at the Château de Chenonceau. Its fine-dining restaurant, the Orangerie, perpetuates this spirit. The new chef, Christophe Canati, trained with Georges Blanc, Bernard Loiseau and Eric Briffard, rediscovers his Touronian roots here. Passionate about this region, he highlights its wines and the fabulous products of local producers.
