We too were caravaning in the area. Always like to eat where the locals go. This is a wonderful place with French bistros cooking at its best and then some. Staff very helpful and patient with us. Superb meal. Cheeseboard is breathtaking. Lovely atmosphere. Good sized portions & would suggest starter + main or main + dessert unless your appetite... More

My wife and I had dinner here several times during our stay in Saumur, it was just that good! I have had a few meals over the years in Michelin 3 star restaurants and I think this restaurant comes very close to equal. Le Pot de Lapin was recommended by the owner of the B&B in which we were staying... More

The restaurant is small so we booked as it was a Saturday night. The owner and his (soon to be) wife were really helpful and monsieur speaks very... More

About 10mins walk from the centre of town, so more popular with locals than tourists. Excellent cooking of local dishes and an amazing local wine list. Service very friendly. Has a small tapas bar but to get the real experience you need to eat in the restaurant (room next door) where you get the full menu. Has a couple of... More

This is a place that has been on the list, as I am fairly local in that I've got a place in the area and been visiting the region for some 25 years.This restaurant was recommended to me by some neighbours and, combined with the Trip Advisor reviews, is somewhere I have been looking forward to visiting.

I've been to this place about 4 times and each time, it's been excellent. Really great French food, friendly service. It's not cheap but good value for what you get.

Go for the a la carte menu rather than tapas for a more authentic French dining experience; the menu features some great choices and the wine list is very good too
