Good food and good wine: here's what you get at the Bistrot de la Place! We serve fresh homemade food that you can choose off the "a la carte" menu or from our set menus. And if you're feeling peckish during the day, we also offer oysters, cured meat and cheese platters. During spring and summer, our outside terrace will allow you to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this small and cute square of Saumur.

Really good food and wine

We had the set menu and the food was excellent. This was complemented really well by the local wine. If I had one thing I would change it would be for the service to be a bit quicker but if you are not in a hurry this Is outweighed by the quality of the food and wine. (As a Brit... read more

We chose this bistrot on the scientific principle that it was the busiest on the square so it must be doing something right. After our first course we understood why. Excellent food, some imagination with the menu and all at a very reasonable price

Finally, a medium priced French restaurant that can cook meat. Charming location in the old town, with friendly and efficient staff. As this is supposed to be the capital of good French cooking, I went with high expectations and thinking I would have to pay for the privilege, but no. The meal was reasonably priced at just over 20 Euros... More

My wife and I decided to try this well placed restaurant last night and accidentally sat at a reserved table in the outside section with our two dogs. Having checked that we had not booked the owner simply smiled, told us to stay and moved the reserved sign to another table. A friendly start which continued with all of the... More

This is situated in a little square full of restaurants. We've tried some of them but this was our first time here. The service was ok and the food was passable but it's a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Not particularly expensive and a relaxed atmosphere makes it a place worth visiting. Typical French fare... More

Being right in the middle of the 'tourist area' I had very low expectations but the food was fine and the wine superb.

Ate here on a busy Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The sharing platter for 2 was enough for 4 of us and featured delicious home-made rilllettes, pate and quality jamon. The rognons de veau, gigot d'agneau and chicken fricasse were all excellent and the helpful waitress recommended a nice bottle of local red. Perfect for a convivial evening... More

Dining in 'La Place' on a warm summer evening is just what one expects in France. Nice meal, wine, atmosphere and live music .
