My wife and I attended with another couple we were friends with after reading some reviews of the restaurant. It was fantastic. No negatives to say (which is odd for me!). The chef came out and explained the parts of the menu we couldnt read and even managed to crack a few jokes (on several occasions) at my friends expense... More

My wife and I have visited Saumur many times and always enjoyed this pretty town which is twinned with our home town of Warwick. On this visit we decided to look for a restaurant that was outside the usual tourist fare of the centre. Whilst walking near to the equestrian buildings we came across Le Carrousel. What a find! When... More

Really enjoyed several visits to this restaurant last summer. Good variety available on a reasonably priced menu and service from this husband and wife team was first class. You can choose whether to dine inside or out and weather permitting each is very comfortable. Looking forward to going back this year

Excellent family restaurant in Saumur. We had a 29 euro table d'hote washed down with a carafe of house red wine and it was perfect The food was very good and the service was excellent

If you speak no French, this place may not be for you, as the menu is only in French and the staff speaks only a few words of English.. With that said, and knowing that my French is very rusty, we had a marvelous evening and meal. The escargot and mushroom appetizer accompanied by a puffed pastry was luscious, and... More

We were a group of 15 who thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal at le Carrousel. We dined in our own room in the restaurant. There were evening menus ranging from 20€ to 28€ and our group chose from the different priced menus. Everybody was pleased with their choices which were beautifully presented and tasty. The staff were very pleasant and... More

We have a holiday home near Saumur and visit the town to eat many times throughout the year. We have looked at Le Carousel, and wondered...then a French friend recommended it to us. What a great evening we had! We ate outside in the charming courtyard and were soon joined by many French diners on a lovely warm evening. The... More

We were caught in the rain (a party of four) on a festival day, and it seemed that all of the restaurants on the main/central streets were full. I found this place through Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Extremely lucky that we showed up before it filled up. We took mostly "menu"s with the different types... More
