Visited here twice when we were staying in Saumur last September on both occasions we had lunch from the set menu which was very good value for money and the service was delightful, what was noticeable was that most of the other diners were French which speak volumes in itself. If you are Saumur do make the effort and talk... More

I visited this restaurant about three years ago and was very impressed back then. One of the signs of a good restaurant, in France, is its popularity by the locals at lunchtime, and the three times I have been here, it has been very busy with French businessmen/ businesswomen. They don't go over the top cramming as many as they... More

Last night we had the most wonderful Reveillons (New Years Eve) dinner here. 7 delicious and beautifully presented courses with perfect service and a great atmosphere. We've eaten here before for 'normal' meals and they have all been great too.

11 of us recently enjoyed lunch here pre Xmas. We were given a private room upstairs. The food and service were excellent.

We arrived (3 of us, with a booking) at this bustling little restaurant (which had been recommended by both our hotel and a friend from Saumur), a short walk from our Hotel Londres at a busy time, and had to wait a bit for menus and service. But we really enjoyed the food (chevre chaud salad, foie gras, magret de... More

We arrived (reserved in advance) with a party of 10. They had done a special "menu" for us of around 5 courses. All was fabulous, and they even (easily) swapped out one fish dish for me with a delectable grilled veggie risotto at the very last minute. Very good reception, the service was delightful, and we all left very happy... More

This restaurant is located at 10 minutes walk from center town but you will definitely not regret it ! The menu is 20€ during the week and 30 for the week ends. Everything from starter to dessert is homemade and really tasty. We had the foie gras, the caille and the macaron. All fantastic !

The food was great and not expensive, we could take a menu which was a very good deal. I had the Tuna and this was probably the best tuna I ever ate, such beautiful plating too. Starter and dessert were good but more average. Service was great, wine cart was elaborate and affordable for most wines. I found it a... More

This restaurant in Saumur offers French cuisine with an original touch. We chose the menu of 29 euro (entrée-plat-dessert) and we were delighted. This is one of the best experiences we had during our trip in France. You find classic French dishes (magret de canard) but with an original addition (a nem of confit de canard) to your plate, which... More
