Great place in Saumur Centre. Recommended to us by a Chateau we were visiting for a wine tasting. We had local specialities Galipettes / Fouées (Stuffed large mushrooms and mini breads), Fish soup and Tripe. Go here and you will not be disappointed. Everything is cooked in front of you, in the wood oven, in the centre of the restaurant.... More

My wife and I chose this restaurant after walking the streets looking for somewhere to eat that looked inviting and was reasonably priced. A very helpful lady who spoke good English came to the outside menu board and explained some of the mysteries of their offerings to us. She jokingly explained that they did not have a menu in English... More

We decided to eat here after arriving into Saumur and needed a place to eat with our young daughter. This was a really lovely find. It felt like a french take on Italian which was executed quite well. The pizza we had was delightful, as was the HUGE serving of a salad. Wine selection is minimal but still nice. Recommend... More

Delicious local food and very helpful friendly service from Madame who spoke good English. Very tasty wood fired pizzas for our fussy children. Also take away pizzas available.

A food from Saumur is fouees and this restaurant features them in it's menu. Freshly baked for each order they arrive at the table hot and inviting with delicious fillings. The galipettes (mushrooms) were the best I've ever eaten. The service was good, the ambience convivial and the patio adequate.

This restaurant was recommended to is by our hotel (Le Londres) and we liked it so much we went back! Must tries are the fouees- puffy wood oven baked bread, like pita, that you slice open and fill up from a tray of goat cheese, rilettes, beans, herbed butter and more. I loved the galipettes 3 ways-mushroom caps topped with... More

We were walking down the road looking for somewhere to eat and there were at least six restaurants one after the other. We chose this place as it had an authentic food fired pizza oven and looked welcoming and had a lot of outside seating as well as being packed inside. Very friendly woman came to serve us ( not...

I've never heard of "fouee" before my french friend took us to this place for lunch. She explained us that fouee is very traditional and typical of this region, French Loire. When we opened the door, there were already plenty of people having lunch so we have to wait for a while. The atmosphere is very warm, cozy and welcoming.... More

Saumur has one local specialty 'fouees', a small 'bubble of bread' that you can stuff with different sauces and cream, goat cheese, 'lardons', local beans, etc... You need to try them if you go to Saumur and this is the best place to do it in the city. Very friendly staff, good fouee and very good pizzas, beef and fries.... More

We were recommended this place by the reception of our Hotel(Ibis Styles) as being a traditional local cuisine Restaurant, i must admit it was worth the 15 minute walk, the food was wonderful, it has a Pizza Oven in the middle of the Restaurant where they produced the most fantastic bread (try as a dessert with the Chocolate and Caramel...
