Stayed in Saumur for two nights and unfortunately almost everything was shut on the first night. After the previous reviews l'Aromate was our choice for the last night of our trip. Food was beautifully presented and very good.

This is our absolute favourite restaurant in Saumur!!!! Our lunch today was delicious - seafood rillettes, pork tenderloin with the most amazing lentils and mushrooms, followed by poached pear with a raspberry foam....three courses for 18 Euros!!! If you love cooking, sit at Table 15 which is right next to the kitchen window and watch the experts at work. Our... More

Comfortable room. Pleasant and efficient service. Menu is on the chalk board and though limited and apparently unchanging, the food is delicious. Our half bottle of Bordeau red was the best on the trip.

This was our first visit to Saumur, and our hotel recommended this restaurant, which was just a few minutes down the road. Very welcoming on arrival, just us and an American couple as it was early. None of us understood the menu as it was all in French, the waitress and the chef explained what everything was in detail. The... More

We went here on the recommendation of the owner of our hotel. As it was a Wednesday a lot of the other local restaurants were closed. We enjoyed our dining experience although we found the service a bit slow at times. The food was very well presented although we did find a lot of the flavours quite rich. There were... More

This is a small restaurant a little away from the main tourist area and from outside could easily be mistaken for a bar. Menus on blackboards were offered and we chose 26 euro giving entree, main course and dessert. There was a choice of about 5 for each course. The duck and fois gras starter was exceptional. We had mains... More

After spending a week in Saumur we feel qualified to rate most of the restaurants there. This for me had the best atmosphere and the service was impeccable. The food was excellent but what most stuck out for us was the atmosphere. Light music and great decor coupled with not being crammed in really made this special. The value is... More

This restaurant was one of a number we visited while staying in Samaur for a week. Ordering lamb & pork - both were excellent. On our re-visit we both ordered pork - thinking we would have the same dish as before. We were delighted with a slightly different version. If we are back in Samaur again we will visit this... More
