What a great service and lovely wine bar ambient! We stopped just for a glass of wine, and we were so well received that stayed for dinner!

We had what was our best meal in Saumur this evening in an almost empty restaurant. Because of the restoration work on the neighbouring church, visitors are just not finding this gem. The food is excellent and, given a normal clientele, the atmosphere and ambiance would be perfect. Service was attentive without being fussy. If you're in Saumur and you're... More

One of our best meals. Food was delicious and beautifully presented lamb shank. So nice to find a restaurant that isnt the usual tourist menu of foie gras and duck. Although no childrens menu they catered for our fussy 6yr old very well. Will definitely go back when next in saumur.

Wonderful restaurant, fantastic food, great service and we celebrated my birthday in style! We were so full when we left because of the chef Gatean's fantastic fresh homemade food. This place is definitely worth a visit.

Visited this restaurant 3 times in the last couple of months. The food is very good, and presented very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. On the third visit we were slightly disappointed with the waiting time between courses, however this would not stop us returning.

This is our second visit to Les Canons and each time we have really enjoyed the food, service and friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Behind the relaxed atmosphere however, is a team who work hard and offer excellent service and dishes 'a l française'. Les Canons is hidden to the left of the church in Place St. Pierre, you could easily miss... More
