After we politely commented that the ordered crab dish did not seem well, the manager got so angry that he told us to leave because we were 'difficult' people. After we indeed left he followed us on the street demanding that we should pay for the wine. Quite arrogant as we both had only one zip of the wine before... More

A great little restaurant tucked down a quiet street just beside the old town. Specialising in fish, there were excellent choices including other meats. The €18 menu was perfect for us. Plenty of choices and the food was truly outstanding for the price. Good wine selection. Great value all round. Would easily eat there again if back in the area.... More

Food was tasty but not always set out nicely. A little pricy for standard of food. The lamb casserole tasted better than the filet steak.

This restaurant is a best kept secret of Saumur. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. I cannot say enough about the owners who are absolutely inviting and always gives us a warm welcome as does their staff. My favorite dish here is moules frites (mussels and fries). You can have them in white wine sauce (the traditional way), in... More

We went to this restaurant and were pleased with the professional and enthusiastic service from the young staff. Food was excellent and really good value for the quality and taste. The Saumur whites on the carte were also well worth a go. On our second night in Saumur, we went again and it was just as good!

Visited this restaurant on two occasions during a stay in France with friends. We hadn't booked but got a table when the restaurant opened at 7pm. The meals on both occasions was delicious and good value. One of our friends is gluten free and the staff dealt with this with ease. The ambience and staff were both excellent.

After being let down with the closure of Le pot de Lapin, we ventured to this restaurant, where we were treated by a waitress who pointed to a table and told us that this was the only one available. Not more than a couple more minutes passed when 2 more customers appeared, and were told that another table was the... More

I could go into great detail about this restaurant, but I'll keep it simple. I've visited it many times over ten or so years and the food has always been excellent, the service great and the night out/ meal/ experience fantastic. Don't waste your time reading loads of reviews, just go and enjoy for yourself.
