Whilst this is not the cheapest establishment in town we loved the food. Each course was a delight to eat. The beef was amazing.

Restaurant has a lovely ambiance. Our party of 4 enjoyed a superbly prepared and presented starter and main dish with a good Saumur Champigny red wine. I chose the fromage chariot (10 Euro) instead of a dessert to enjoy with the wine and was disappointed...More

Delicate but really interesting food. Great staff. Fantastic local sparkling Saumur rose served. Very characterful conversion of an old outbuilding. Overlooks the pretty garden of the hotel we were staying in.

My wife and I were both smitten with the same alimentary problem the following morning. Hence overall we...More

Have been fortunate to have eaten here a few times and the experience is always first class. The food was exquisite, the accompanying wines perfect and the assistance of the staff very professional. Couldn't recommend this restaurant enough.

Started my meal with butternut squash soup with goat cheese ravioli. The meal could have ended there and I’d have been perfectly satisfied, the portion size was so generous. But no, I also ordered duck canard, which, for me, was cooked to perfection. This was...More

We really liked the room and the outlook. It oozes quality. The welcome was warm and friendly. The menu, already short was missing two options when we visited, which made it quite tricky to chose our food. In the end our foie gras poêlé was...More
