A lovely meal, let down by service.

Found this place after walking from our hotel-it looked nice-a specialist seafood restaurant. Very welcoming (Very little English spoken) and a lovely menu-the food was of excellent quality and not overpriced. However, towards the end of the evening the service became noticeably poor-other clients... read more

Had a family lunch here in August, whilst on holiday, was recommended by others. Food was first class, seafood ranging from mussels, skate, sea bass and other mains all excellent. Set lunch priced at 19 euros for the quality of food we thought superb. Nice location, outside seating to enjoy sunshine and beautiful town of Saumur.

We booked for lunch and all had the sea bass. Absolutely amazing… meal. The wine that was recommended was excellent. The service was fantastic. This is one of the best restaurants in this area. We went out of the main July August season.

The owners of our lovely B&B (Casanova in Saumur) recommended this delightful restaurant, which specializes in fresh fish and seafood. We had a delicious meal with very good service...it as a lovely meal.

Perfect match of service, quality, price and menu options. For three generous sized courses at €19 you could not fault this restaurant. I would recommend the mussels with white wine sauce and the goat cheese salad. The steak bavette is a tougher style of meat so a little chewy, the salmon main was good and the sardine main was as...

A good solid fish restaurant, good friendly service, great atmosphere. The menu is traditional and portions are large. I good wine list with an accent on local wines. All good, but not great if you understand what I mean. Traditional rather than modern. Having said this, our party of 6 had a great time and were not disappointed. The oysters... More

My husband and I decided to visit Saumur today, 27/09, and were lucky enough to have chosen the last Sunday in the month, as that is when Saumur has a Brocante market all day. Parking is also free on this day. We walked by the river Loire, then found a lovely seafood restaurant, and sat outside as it was a... More

Busy restaurant in the centre of Saumur Old Town. Superb service and good welcome eased us into a oysters, mussels and Sole all beautifully cooked. Desserts mostly good but the Tart Tatin had uncooked pastry. Mid price but good value and recommend this restaurant. Book early
