The food was good, and the basil sorbet was outstanding. The seating was a bit tight and it felt crowded.

From the moment we entered the restaurant , we were impressed with the decor and service. Attention to detail was excellent. The meal itself was faultless , discreet but attentive service. This place has real style! Definitely will be remembered in our best meals ever.

This pleasantly laid out restaurant serves the best food we have had so far in Saumur and has a reasonable list of wine focussed on the region. We arrived just after 8 pm and had booked in advance but the one waiter on duty was busy looking after a large table and we stood around for about five minutes. No... More

Lovely restaurant that is part of the Anne d'Anjou hotel. Gourmet, wonderful ambiance, lovely service, the couple that owns the restaurant are chef and sommelier, and so the food and wine pairings are excellent. Very creative menu. Loved everything about this restaurant.

We had a set 3 course meal while on an Odsseys Unlimited tour (14 diners). High quality food propely prepared and artfully presented in a beautiful venue. The service was excellent. The side dishes (polenta and a puree of pumpkin) were a bit bland and the portion sizes overall were just barely sufficient. Good breads and world class butter.

We found this place by accident at lunchtime and had a fantastic bistro meal for only E18 for 2 courses, delicious cream of asparagus soup followed by sea trout. We couldn't understand why it wasn't full; it's slightly off the beaten track, yet great shady parking nearby for chateau visiting (just by the steps leading up to the panoramic view).... More

It is wise to book for this restaurant, which we did. It is really charming tucked away on the rue de Raspial close to the chateau. There has been a lot of attention to detail in the decor and furnishings. The menu at 35.50 euros for an entree, plat and dessert is very reasonable, as you are also given an... More

On the quay side behind a well placed hotel is this fine dining place. The chef is a master at his craft. On a sunny day one can eat on the lawn or on a balcony. The food which comes at French speed, is simply classy which is why I'm forbidden to write anything about it!! I don't eat desserts... More
