A great last dinner in the Loire Valley

A very nice small bistro, the food was excellent. The entree of egg of the month was really very good and interesting. The duck was very well prepared and the deserts were great. The owners are friendly and very helpful.

On a perfect early summer evening, we went with the set menu - excellent value for 26,50€ (4,50€ added for foie gras). The oeuf of the month starter was nice and light, yet not overwhelming. The plat principal, veal with peas and potatoes was excellent! As a dessert, we had the cheese platter, which was also fine with local produce.

An excellent choice for great food that both tastes wonderful and is really light. The menu was inventive and modern with the food being beautifully presented and not lots of heavy rich sauces. The price was very reasonable as well.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at this restaurant after a day visiting various chateau along the Loire. Nice menu - good range of choices (wife only eats fish - she found a couple of items she would have enjoyed). Beautifully presented. Staff very attentive and provided excellent service. Located in a quiet part of town a short walk from... More

After 2 weeks travelling in France we found this restaurant after exploring the back streets. We are so happy we stumbled across it! We adored the waitress and later discovered that she is married to the chef. What a team! We could not have asked for more attentive service and the food was superb. We ate from the plat de... More

We visited this place because it has been scoring highly on TripAdvisor. We are slowly working through the restaurants and have frequented quite a few. First off, in my opinion, this restaurant is rated more highly than others, and although a very good standard of food, I would no place it in the top five in Saumur. The menu is... More

Our first effort to eat here was foiled by a gas failure in its area that found all the staff seated outside with nothing to do. However, they were very friendly and we decided to try again the next evening. We are glad that we did as this restaurant proved to be excellent value. Our meal for two including a... More

Beautifully presented, simple but we'll cooked food. Chef comes out to check all guests are happy. Away from the main crowd you stumble upon this place. Only three tables eating when we visited but it was October. Starter: beetroot, then fish, amaizing lemon meringue which was the complete opposite of angel delight -sharp, fresh, delightful and fab cheese. We are... More

We stayed for a week in Saumur and ate here on our last evening having previously walked past and seen the menu. We ate from the set menu and all the courses were beautifully presented and tasted delicious using fresh local ingredients. Incredibly good value and the staff were charming and helpful.
