Worth a visit but the menu does not change , the food is good especially the Buffet beautiful black pudding whelks, prawns, pate fresh bread, as much as you can eat with the same policy for the deserts. Accompanied by a very pleasant house wine

We were in the lovely town of Saintes on a cold January day and, on the advice of friends, booked the restaurant for lunch. It's located between the Cathedral and the shopping street just off Rue Victor Hugo. It's a small restaurant with room for 28 covers but decor is taken up by a huge display of wines. The owner...

The menu looked inviting, the choice of wine overwhelming. The owner serves a set meal and he'll let you taste the wine first. No winelist! Swift service, delicious quality food and fabulous wines for very reasonable price. A little treasure.

We visited La Cave passe a Table as an extended family group of 14. Outwardly the restaurant looks very rustic and quite "café like". Do not be put off by looks though. The female owner greeted us warmly and showed us to a set of tables that she moved so that we could all be accommodated. She spoke very little... More

Come here regularly and have always enjoyed our meal but today there was no choice so if the menu wasn't to your liking - tough! Maybe it's just a seasonal variation but it's nice to have a choice- albeit only two for each course and normally this is what you get. Anyway, we were with another couple and one of... More

We stumbled upon this place by happy accident on a day visit to Saintes, and had the best menu de jour I have had in a long time: simple but imaginative, prepared with great skill and taste, and absolutely delicious. A tomato 'tartare', fresh and delicately flavoured, guinea fowl with a mushroom sauce which still makes me smile with pleasure... More

Late lunch. No choice. Camembert on toast; chicken; apple pie. All nicely done and very tasty. Lovely wine. A delight

This is actually a wine shop which serves meals although there is no choice of main course. The food was well cooked and served. It was fun to sit amongst the bottles and cases of wine and to leave the choice to accompany our meal to the boss!

I went there with my folks as they live locally to the area and I highly recommend it. Nice intimate setting and a simple but lovely menu which changes daily and wonderful wine to match from a huge selection as it's also a wine shop. It was that good we went back twice. Good times 😃
