restaurant in a good position in centre of town, good choice of food and with good selection of prices to suit most pockets. One member of party did not have a starter and despite our request in fluent french not to bring their main course until we had finished our starters they did !! which was disappointing. overall good food...

We were having trouble to find somewhere to eat, and by chance managed to get a table for us 4 in what turned out to be a great find. The service was impeccable, very professional and attentive to the point that we forgot our umbrella and they recognised us when we went to collect it the following day, nice touch!... More

During our stay in Saumur we went twice to this restaurant. Great food for great price. Compared to a lot of the other places to eat in Saumur, this is a proper restaurant where everything is freshly prepared. Rip: reservation is required, unless you're lucky.

Good atmosphere, correct but loose and happy staff, many french locals. Great fish menu's for a Nice price, even the standaard fish menu has oysters as a starter. Try the regional wines, they are formidable!

Nice restaurant location, lots of others around and mixed review. We were a party of 3, two enjoyed their food one not quite so much. The fish soup was really strong and salty. The mussels altough nice are a huge quantity. In fact quantity is big all around. Not sure I would go there again as there are maybe better... More

Eat here twice on our two day visit, it was without doubt the best food of our eight day holiday to France, both nights very busy with plenty of French people, always a good sign! The atmosphere was great , partly due to sitting outside on a lovely evening but also to our waiter Hakob who went out of his... More

This is possibly Saumur's most popular restaurant - and justifiably so. It has a range of menus, some of them mixing meat and fish with an imaginative flourish, plus an extensive a la carte, and a wine list to match The small team of waiters performs wonders, and the atmosphere is one of bustle, enjoyment, and serious eating and drinking....

If you are not going to eat sea food do not go to this restaurant. The other meals were a bit ordinary and the presentation was a tad strange with rice served with pasts. They do really good mussels. There are better places to go

Very good food especially the moules and duck off the fixed price menu. The duck was excellent, one off the best meals I have had although another night the steak was only average. My partner enjoyed her two meals; moules off the main menu and langoustine. Gets busy so decided to book a table for our second visit. Staff are... More

I visited this restaurant last week and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Delicious Moules with a blue cheese sauce, a very generous portion. Main course Scallops, again delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. I had been to this restaurant several years ago, and had enjoyed the food then, I look forward to my next visit.
