We have been going caravanning to France for many years and it used to be top draw for service and food. However several owner's later it is all average. Bit noisy if you eat exterior with traffic right alongside the tables. Not cheap and not dear. Typical place for tourists.

The food and service were both excellent at La Bourse. We liked sitting outside, in the warm evening, people-watching, as we ate dinner. Our waiter was friendly and spoke a little English, which helps put you at ease when your own attempts at French sometimes fail! We'd asked him to order a taxi for us to return to our hotel.... More

Visited La Bourse during our Loire Valley trip- we'd picked out 4/5 from Trip Adviser reviews and this was the best one-open on a rainy monday. Food was very good quality and staff attentive- we'd managed to grab an early table for lunch and by about 1pm became incredibly busy- service didn't seem to deteriorate as a result though. Probably... More

The food was ok but there is much better available at the price in Saumur. Service was slow and irritably delivered and I do hate it when you want to leave and pay and staff studiously avoid you. No more to be said.

We visited this restaurant twice recently once to eat and once to be seated and then forgotten. On both occasions the restaurant was very busy but first time we were seated in a pleasant position and accepted the slow service but on the second we were seated right next to the toilets and we left without eating after waiting a...

We ate here this evening, my partner feeling hungry, me not so much. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was tasty and very reasonably priced. He had modules and frites, I had a croque with salad and fries 16.80 euros! Magic! Good atmosphere and great service!

Typical Frence Brasserie frequented by the locals. There is always a Plat du Jour which is great value but the menu is extensive and suits all tastes. Wines are mainly local and good value too and by the glass.

We dined here early on a Sunday evening and sat outside with plenty of space between tables. There was a very good choice of food and local wines. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. Dishes seemed individually and carefully prepared and the Cremant de Loire that we drank was perfect for a hot summer evening. We recommend this highly.
