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.

Wide wine choice and excellent food

Of all the places we tried around this square without doubt this was our favourite. Any one who serves up a start of avocado, crab and roast red pepper ice cream, in a beautiful stack wins hands down in my book. Hundreds of wine to choose from too. An all round winner

Recommend by our B&B hottest for dinner. The place was very popular with locals. We had one entree and two mains. The entree was good but mains were ok. My husband had a beef dish and it was rather tough. I had fish and chose not to have the citron sauce to avoid cream and it was a bit dry.... More

Of the many choices in this part of Saumur, this bistrot is top end for food and service. The dishes of the day were all excellent in taste and presentation. Quantity and value is good and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

The restaurant inside is cute and the staff friendly, the food was ok, but not spectacular, one of my friends ordered vegetables with her fish and they forgot, they said sorry we forgot and now the kitchen is closed already.....I asked my steak medium and it came rare!

I pre-booked this restaurant after reading reviews on here and I was not disappointed. We secured a table outside as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children - age 5,10). The service was incredibly fast and the wine very reasonable compared to other places we have visited! The menu was vast with plenty of choice for everyone. We opted... More

Very friendly staff and a varied menu but the food tasted mass produced with the kitchen not tasting the food being served. Both our meals were spoiled by poorly made sauces and stewed vegetables. Great ambience and staff let down by the kitchen.

The Place St. Pierre is very lively and has a lot of restaurants. For a touristy spot, the Bistrot de la Place is quite good, as it often seems that the more tourists the worse the food. However, our meal was quite tasty, washed down with a great bottle of Saumur red, and the service pretty good.

Tasteless fish,even if it was the speciality of the day. The beer and the wines by bottle are not in the menu. You can ask, but you don't know the prices. Good wireless though and prompt service. Almost forgot, some nasty flies bugging us while we ate there.
