New year was totally made by this AMAZING meal. We had the 7 course tasting menu, and it was nothing short of exquisite. The staff are all very gracious and knowledgable with regards to wine pairing, and we enjoyed the celebration very much. By far...More

Lunch @ 36 Euros was the best meal we've had in 5 one-star restaurants the last 2 weeks. The experience was perfect as well. Local white wine for 34 was fine. Sublime taste and presentation. Can 2 stars be long in coming?

Our favorite Loire valley restaurant provided a wonderful dining experience yet again. We have been frequenting this restaurant for ten years and always enjoy the fine cuisine and professional service.

The restaurant is discreetly situated on a quiet street and you could easily pass by. Don't! The excellent reviews and the Michelin star do not tell a lie. It is worth travelling to Saumur just to eat here. We ate there on a quiet midweek...More

Eaten twice here recently, and an excellent experience. Cuisine is extremely good. Of the starters the foie gras in mushroom soup is simply lovely with enormous depth of flavour. The gambas and confit egg aren't bad either! Main of noir de bigorre ( black pig...More
