Food was great, really good, but the service was very, very slow. We got the menus quickly enough, but then had to wait for long periods before we got our entree, between entree and main, and between main and dessert. Food is absolutely delicious, so if you have the time it's worth the wait.

This restaurant as it turns out is a few doors away from L'Escargot, which is an equally fine restaurant. As I have not tried this restaurant before I thought I would give it a go. We went in Lunchtime (midweek) and chose to have the 28 euro menu rather than the 15 or 18.50 lunchtime offerings. All of the courses... More

My wife and I decided to give L'Aromate a chance on a whim. We arrived with no reservation slightly after prime dining time with no reservation. This was not a problem and we were accommodated with no fuss. The staff was more than happy to see us. We had a wonderful view of the kitchen staff at work and sat... More

The menu is unique and limited with delightful selections of fish,meat,duck, etc. nice wine list. Do not pass on dessert! Amazing desserts! If you are in Saumur, try this fabulous little restaurant. It does not... More

This small resto is beautifully renovated in a modern style. The staff were professional and eager to please. But best of all was the food. Well designed menu offering a wide choice of prix fixe or a la carte and specials. Portion size was large and the kitchen produced some of the best fois gras, salads, mains and desert I... More

Was closed last year for hols and has obviously realised what they were missing. Well patronised by Brits. Twice visited. David and I chose the 27 euro menu which we thought was much better than the 20 euro one. First we had a bottle of Rigoletto from Domaine de la Paleine. Today we have just visited their cave and purchased... More

We tried this place on our second night. The lady at our B&B hadn't yet tried it but we found the food and wine very good and the service excellent.

What can I say - great quality and value for money. We are at the end of a ten day French journey and this meal was one -if not the best. Can't say better than that......oh yes and service was excellent.
