We had seen this restaurant during a walk and decided to try it out on a Wednesday night, arriving at 7.30pm without a reservation, the tables were less than 20% occupied but we were told the place was FULL!! Gentleman was quite rude/brusque and... More

This was a fun restaurant to eat at, but the food is only average. Huge menu with tapas as well. Good local wines, but a lot of non-local also. Salade gourmand was very good as was crumble of veggies and chorizo. Confit de lapin tasty. Portions quite large. Owner likes to play the showman, while his wife does most of... More

Brilliant, imaginative food at very reasonable prices. Some local dishes, but mostly a mixture of fusion and French classic. Good cellar with really excellent choice of local Saumur wines. Friendly, casual, efficient, tasty.

if you don't enjoy your meal here, don't blame the chef, blame yourself for making a poor choice! It's all good! The only downside (perhaps) is that it is tucked away in a side street down by the river, up towards the big railway bridge.The wine is also good, which always helps. What I remember most, hic, is the outsize... More

Hidden away from the main routes it is worth seeking this restaurant for the wonderful menu that it offers. The dishes are high class, different to other establishments, very wholesome with lovely flavours , it is complimented with attentive staff, has a good wine selection, and is extremely good value.
