If I want to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a relaxing lunch I can always trust the Reine de Sicile to deliver quality food, beautifully presented with excellent service. A good wine list and a menu which changes with the seasons.

The location of this restaurant is rather unlikely but it was worth the effort to find it. Hidden in the back streets, it has a lovely terrace and a very pleasant couple who ensured that we had a first class dining experience..The food was first class and the cheese board was one of the best I have seen. The food... More

The people who run this restaurant know what they're about, but they are tired of us. The small restaurant was full of English TripAdvisor readers and I think it is a case of the Emperors new clothes: they forget the bread, forget the water, forget to take our order, but remember to charge €155 for a dreadful steak, a small...

We were a group of 11 travelling through La Loire valley. This restaurant was perfect for our requirements as it had simple to understand set menus with a good choice. We all enjoyed our meals of typical French food, including the popular cheese board to finish. The hosts were very generous with the digestif and we were suitably generous with... More

We made reservations based on recommendations of friends. The service is a bit more formal than average. We did not order entrées and went right to the main course dishes. They were both very well presented and savory. One was the fish of the day and the other a lamb dish. We enjoyed both and also shared a green salad.... More

We always seek family run restaurants which are slightly outside of the town centres within France to eat. Since over the many years of travelling through France that they provide the best option to enjoy excellent fare at reasonable prices. In this the La Reine de Sicile offered all that we seek. Although, I thought whist excellent the combinations were... More

We arrived a day early for our reservation (whoops) had a warm welcome and a fantastic meal in a charming olde worlde 'living room' style restaurant. Slightly off the beaten track and away from the 'touristy' parts of Saumur. Well worth a visit we loved it :-)

Second restaurant we visited in Saumur, previous one we had visited twice. This was a step up in price and cooking a little over 100 euros for 2. Atmosphere in a restaurant is made by the clientele. Here we had to listen to a very boorish American lecture his business colleagues on how good he was and how much money... More

We dined outside under the passion fruit vines. Our starters were superb; pate and salmon. The red mullet main had a fantastic sauce and was cooked to perfection. My boyfriend's steak was not up to scratch - sinewy. Pavlova was scrumptiously chewy and light. Would definitely re-visit if coming to saumur again.

La Reine de Sicile is a lovely little restaurant tucked in a quiet street within walking distance to the Loire river. It is run by a charming and very service minded couple and the cuisine is exquisite. Visited with my family and kids over the summer and will recommend to my travelling friends without any hesitation. A great culinary and... More
