Went with my family to this cute restaurant. The service is good & friendly. We ordered the menu i had a delicious tuna tartar then followed by scallops with risotto& finished by a pavlova. During the entire meal we drank a St Nicolas de Bourgueil which is a light red wine from the region - delicious ! We will be... More

We had a really good meal with excellent and friendly service. Located on the island in a quiet street it is away from the noise of the centre of town and so a really good place for dinner (and also lunch I guess). We sat outside and enjoyed every aspect of our time there.

We found this restaurant by chance as it is slightly out of the way. We were a party of 4 and had one of the best meals in a long time. The cooking was innovative and yet not too complicated and at €29.00 for three courses not too expensive, the wine list was also interesting with some good local wines.... More

Recommended by staff at Best Western...good location, potentially could be a classic French auberge, but staff just OK, food basic, service very average, interior dated...could do lot better.

We were recommended this restaurant and were looking forward to the meal here. The service is faultless and friendly. The food is competent but not 'blow you away' French. We had the set menu which was well priced. The four gras was standard. The highlight of the entrees was the rabbit rillette. Two of us had the steak tartare for... More

We found this pleasant and busy restaurant close to our hotel in Saumur and the waiter found us a table despite the fact that we had no reservation. Despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed a very good dinner served in a most relaxed and welcoming fashion. The quality of the meal and the wine were commendable and while not inexpensive it... More

The menu and restaurant looked promising but the dishes were not interested in making this promises come true. Too bad as the atmosphere in the restaurant is intimate and with a little bit more tasty kitchen this restaurant could become a much more exciting place in Saumur

This restaurant was recommended to use by staff at the Mercure. A family run establishment providing attentive service and delicious and well presented food. Nice choice of wines by the glass. Very pleased we went there rather than the hustle and bustle of the main town a few minutes walk away over the bridge.

Visited this restaurant on the 19th July 2014 on the basis that it was handy for our hotel and had excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed .......meal was superb, beautifully presented, we both had the filet porc and it was delicious, wine was excellent and service was similarly very good. The sweets were an artistic delight, the apricot ice cream complete... More
