We have a holiday home near Saumur and visit the town to eat many times throughout the year. We have looked at Le Carousel, and wondered...then a French friend recommended it to us. What a great evening we had! We ate outside in the charming courtyard and were soon joined by many French diners on a lovely warm evening. The... More

We were caught in the rain (a party of four) on a festival day, and it seemed that all of the restaurants on the main/central streets were full. I found this place through Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Extremely lucky that we showed up before it filled up. We took mostly "menu"s with the different types... More

It was not bad, but unfortunately it was not memorable. The entrées of foie gras started well, but the main course was nothing to rave about. We would have been better off with the plat du jour instead of a more expensive menu. The dessert as well was pretty dull. We had far better meals in Brittany. Unless you happen... More

Excellent dinner, warm welcome, good service. Good value, house wine is excellent, little snacks and a creme brûlée foils gras as bonuses. Snails, lamb, monkfish, smoked fish dishes all delicious. Would go again definitely.

On our recent stay in Saumur we returned to Le Carrousel, a restaurant that we'd first visited in October 2012. We were not disappointed and ended up eating there twice during this visit. We experienced the same warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere and the food was every bit as good as we remembered. On neither occasion was the restaurant crowded.... More

We visited le carrousel in mid July. What could we possibly remember? The warm welcoming feeling and an overall lasting impression that this was one of the finest dining experiences we had in our three weeks in France. The hostess attended to us as if we were the only ones in the restaurant. We weren't. The garden space was neat... More

Traditional, very friendly restaurant with appended café that caters for the soldiers of the adjacent old cavalary school. What could be more French? Foie Gras Maison au Layon et son Pain Irlandais Crépinette de Pied de Cochon Fait Maison Chocolte fondant with excellent open wines with each dish.

Me and my girlfriend dined at this nice, tiny restaurant after the Anjou Velo Vintage. The place is comfy and the decoration is "welcoming" (though it may be improved). The food, on the contrary, is just great: typical dishes from the local area, reviewed with a modern twist. Tasty and well dressed, every dish comes as a little treasure box... More

Came across this place whilst wandering around Saumur. Typically good French food beautifully presented and vast portions. Great wine too unsurprisingly. Very good service. Would eat here again
