Busy, busy, busy!

We stopped here for lunch in late April, so not many tourists but the restaurant was packed with locals and lots of business people. Steak and chips seemed to be the majority of what was being served, so I ordered one too. The wife had a crevette salad. Both were excellent, and quickly served. In... read more

Very nice restaurant, food was fresh and tasty and very good value. Wine was lovely, most from he local area. Service was a little slow to start with but picked up once we had ordered our food. Definitely recommended

We went to this restaurant following advice from our hotel. Upon arrival we requested a table for 5 outside; 50% of the tables outside that were empty but we were (rather rudely)told we had to wait 5 minutes for another table to finish and could wait inside with a drink. We went inside but no one asked us for our... More

We were fortunate enough to arrive in Saumur the day of "Les Grandes Tablées" so we were in the mood for some Saumur Champigny. We sat in the welcomed shade of "Brasserie de la Bourse" enjoying a chilled bottle of 'Le Petit St Vincent'. To our great surprise, and even greater delight, our charming waiter bought us a selection of... More

Enjoyable meal sitting outside on warm summer's evening. Good menu choices and food was well presented. Attentive staff also made for an enjoyable evening. Reasonably priced too.

Great choice of food both a la carte and on the set menus offered. Wine list was quite extensive as well. Large outside seating area which is on a main road but doesn't detract from the experience, noticed very little road noise whilst there. Good waiting staff, attentive but not overpowering.

On our visit to Saumur we had a supper at La Bourse. Typical French bistro In the city center. Great for eating outdoor. Friendly waiter who also spoke English. We all had the muscles and chips. Was a good meal and value for money.

We visited for lunch and sat outside where there is lots of seating. Most of the patrons seemed to be either business or local people. We sat for a while observing that the locals were getting served until we made a gesture to the wait person, and used our limited knowledge of French (a good idea to know some phrases!).... More

The food is not bad but certainly could be better. Food for the tourists. Seems to be driven by one waiter who was excellent. Nice for a quiet coffee early morning

As other reviewers have stated, timing is everything. We had late lunch and it wasn't busy so service was prompt. Just steak and chips so hard to get wrong and not much to say other than served quickly and tasted fine. This is a slightly higher end restaurant so you can pay more and get more. No hesitation recommending for... More
