The service is excellent - attentive and with good explanations of the courses (in French or English!). The quality of the cooking was a slight disappointment - we had enjoyed eating here in other years, but found some of the courses... More

We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary here and the food and service were excellent. The meal was absolutely superb and our waiter couldn't have been more attentive, yet discreet. Would definitely return.

We went to this restaurant for New Year's Eve in 2015 and thought it was amazing. Based on this experience we decided to go again for this New Year's Eve, this time with American friends. The restaurant did not disappoint. The setting is chic, but warm. The staff have it just right; they are friendly, helpful and get the timing... More

Les Menestrels is not only an excellent restaurant, deserving of a visit from Michelin, it is also conveniently located in Anne D'anjou Hotel courtyard. Serves beautifully cooked French cuisine and has a good affordable wine list. Excellent helpful and friendly table service combined with a delightful atmosphere.

The food was beautifully prepared and presented and cooked with real imagination. The main course of veal topped with gingerbread was a real surprise and despite my prejudice for overly complex dishes the dish was a highlight of... More
