6 of us went here for lunch - I took my daughter and 4 friends (the friends are from Saumur and organised the lunch, otherwise it is unlikely we would have tried it!) The auberge has tables inside and outside - we sat outside but did not feel ignored, rushed or crowded. The meal was excellent - we went for... More

Lovely restaurant which seems popular with locals (or French people, at least!). They have a big pizza oven inside and so specialise in that and the local Fouees, breads similar to pittas. The pizzas were lovely, having seen the 'Menu Fouees' I did then get food envy as it looked lovely. We didn't book, but we're there at 7pm on... More

Visited with our young family. They loved the pizza oven in full view which produced great pizzas for them. Friendly efficient service in this small relaxed place.

After many Michelin * or 'bib' restaurants we were looking for something simpler. Here they produce great pizzas and grills in the wood fired oven as well as local flat-breads to be filled with a wide assortment of tasty small dishes. Also delicious filled large local mushrooms.

We ate on the terrace overlooking the pedestrianised rue St-Nicholas, lots of people passing so plenty to see. We had heavily loaded pizzas from the wood fired oven, really delicious with home made bases. Other food available too including a menu du jour, friendly service and easy to get by with very little English.

Only Brits in the place. Full of locals. Generous portions at a good price. The wood fired oven has to be seen to be believed, the children were transfixed by it. Watching the dough puff up in moments is just magical as the Fouées are cooked. The pizza were "the best I've ever had" according to my wife and the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local who said they made a local dish, galipette. A mushroom is used as a base and there are various toppings. You also get pocket bread. We were amazed how filling they were plus of course tasted delicious. The restaurant itself was very attractive with a wood burning oven as a highlight.... More

Great place in Saumur Centre. Recommended to us by a Chateau we were visiting for a wine tasting. We had local specialities Galipettes / Fouées (Stuffed large mushrooms and mini breads), Fish soup and Tripe. Go here and you will not be disappointed. Everything is cooked in front of you, in the wood oven, in the centre of the restaurant.... More

My wife and I chose this restaurant after walking the streets looking for somewhere to eat that looked inviting and was reasonably priced. A very helpful lady who spoke good English came to the outside menu board and explained some of the mysteries of their offerings to us. She jokingly explained that they did not have a menu in English... More
