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

I'm a little surprised to see the negative reviews; I can only assume that the restaurant has learnt from them because not only was the service excellent, our steaks were fabulous? No complaints at all

We ate as a family one evening while walking around Saumur. The service was great and the staff found us a table even though they were clearly busy (a good sign?). The food was terrible. They served a block of pate to an eight year old boy (that would have served as a starter for 8 adults). My daughter had... More

Chewy steaks, more fat than meat, as I looked around all those people that had ordered steak were struggling. You ask for medium you get rare because that's just how the french do it, their way. Poor service and a real lack of anything good. Shame really as it should be great............ Or at least a pleasant experience..

This one is slightly further down the list, but it is in the St. Pierre square, surrounded by numerous other restaurants which have had reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not looking for a full meal, instead choosing to... More

In the Loire on a bike trip, one night in Saumur. This was pre-arranged by the tour company. Nice location on one of the main squares, good spot for outdoor dining. Took a while to get seated and to get any attention from the wiat staff (they may just be understaffed). Food was OK, pate starter was great, dinner special... More

Stayed in Saumur for 1 night and tried this place as we had heard good things about it. It was busy; the manager asked us to come back in 20, and had a table for us when we did. The terrine starter was great and really old fashioned French. They left the home made communal terrine on the table with... More

Having arrived quite late for lunch the staff were happy to find us a table. Very good lunch of two courses with some excellent local wine. Very reasonable priced, we would visit again if in the area.
