“Our first visits good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Was closed last year for hols and has obviously realised what they were missing. Well patronised by Brits. Twice visited. David and I chose the 27 euro menu which we thought was much better than the 20 euro one. First we had a bottle of Rigoletto from Domaine de la Paleine. Today we have just visited their cave and purchased 18 bottles to take home. Vins de Saumur.

Anyway we had nice fish dishes at the restaurant and good desserts. Second visit we had a nice bottle of light red wine. I would recommend this restaurant to others, a bit better that L'escargot and L'alchimiste. About 100euros.

“Really great food and worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We tried this place on our second night. The lady at our B&B hadn't yet tried it but we found the food and wine very good and the service excellent.

“Everything perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

What can I say - great quality and value for money.
We are at the end of a ten day French journey and this meal was one -if not the best.
Can't say better than that......oh yes and service was excellent.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Stayed in Saumur for two nights and unfortunately almost everything was shut on the first night. After the previous reviews l'Aromate was our choice for the last night of our trip. Food was beautifully presented and very good.
