Good French Food

On the island in the Loire about 300 yards from the Mercure Hotel. Three choices each of Entrée, Plat and Dessert. we visited twice, many more and you would run out of alternatives. Good food, good service, good value. Why are meals in France about half the price in England and usually better?

Friendly staff, who explained the menu well. We opted for the main dish (18£ for only one dish, although quite big) and were suggested by the waitress that this should be enough. As I usually can't finish my plate, I trusted her. I had a massive piece of delicious duck with wonderful sauce and some onions... But not even half... More

Excellent ambience, very friendly and helpful staff, good wine list, but food was disappointing. Oeufs en cocotte was excellent but marinated salmon was horrible. Never had such strange canard - boiled in a watery liquid with nasty soggy vegetables. Fromage lacked character and desert was so-so. Nice relaxing place, but pity about the food.

We chose this restaurant before arriving in Saumur due to its proximity to our hotel (Alcyon) it's closed on Sunday and Monday so was to be our last dinner in Saumur. When I went to book I wondered if there was enough variety for the other 5 members of the family, however we all enjoyed the meal. The set menu... More

The service was very good. We sat in an unimaginative patio and ate the plat( only average) and the dessert (delicious). The price of a beer hurt!

We were staying at the Hotel Adagio, virtually next door, having arrived late & not wishing a route march into town, this restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. Unassuming, friendly & with an interesting menu, we were made to feel most welcome & were charmed by the husband & wife team. Exceptional value for money, (starting at 3... More
