Wonderful local food in a lovely setting

If you speak no French, this place may not be for you, as the menu is only in French and the staff speaks only a few words of English..

We were a group of 15 who thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal at le Carrousel. We dined in our own room in the restaurant. There were evening menus ranging from 20€ to 28€ and our group chose from the different priced menus. Everybody was pleased with their choices which were beautifully presented and tasty. The staff were very pleasant and... More

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.
