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

We ate here on our second night in Saumur. The service was good and the dining room nicely appointed. The rabbit starter was under seasoned and lacked flavour until we added some salt and pepper to it. My wife had the fish dish of the day which was served on a bed of creamy risotto. Not a nice combination or... More

One of the best restaurants in Saumur a five minute walk from the town. The menus are simple to understand and the quality of the dishes and presentation are excellent! When that cheese board is wheeled out to your table you are spoilt for choice and the desserts are always to die for. This is a place where one is... More

Found by chance as staying in the Best Western Hotel nearby, nowhere near the centre of town. Charming little place with outside seating in warm weather. Friendly and efficient staff, a la carte or set priced menu. Nice atmosphere excellent food and good wine list reasonably priced

this restaurant is slightly off the main drag in Saumur but worth finding. the food was really good as was the services. its near the river and the outdoor setting is quiet and relaxing but is a small area.

On the island so about 10mins walk from the town centre. Only about ten tables so best to book. Very good food. Local menus, well executed and nicely presented. Very good value set menu which covers about half of the a la carte options. Good list of local wines. Homely feel.... like eating in someone's living room. So no need... More

Hidden away from the town on an island is this little gem. Run by a husband and wife the food is quite special. and varies with the seasons. Its my 10th visit and I've never been disappointed. They do a fixed price menu as well as a full service. The calves kidneys are to die for and the fish is... More
