We stopped here for lunch on our way to Saumur, but almost everything about the experience was disappointing - both the service and the food. We were ignored for at least 20 mins before we were even given a menu, and kept wondering if we should go and remind them we were there. There were 4 of us, and we... More

Food not bad but service a bit too slow for me. Not that i was counting but it took 44 minutes for my drinks to arrive. The food did come relatively quickly once we ordered. It just took an age for someone to take our order. The chocolat pudding was the highlight of the evening but i must admit i... More

Great food spoilt by no bread offered with the main course and a fresh but boring non seasonal fruit salad. But the service was VERY slow, inexperienced staff with no support, they tried very hard. Several groups walked out while we waited.

Had one of the best steaks have ever had here. The menu hasn't a huge choice, but what is on it is of a very good quality. Staff attentive but not obtrusive. Drinks good quality, one guest had a cocktail and did find it a too strong, so obviously not short with their measures. All in all a very enjoyable... More

Really friendly service, spoke good English (and understood my poor French). The food was delicious, and beautifully executed. The local wines were delicious.

Evidently this restaurant has been transformed in recent months and so earlier reviews can be ignored. It now has an interesting and well balanced menu that is well executed and served in a pleasant room. There is also outdoor seating overlooking the historic market square.

Haven't been here for a while as the food had always been a bit hot or miss but having heard some good reports of it we thought we would give it another go and glad we did. Not amazing but certainly worth a visit as nice setting good food which is nicely presented and good service.

It was average to mildly disappointing. An appreciable effort is made towards food presentation but the food itself is not very tasty. We had a walnut pie for desert which was obviously straight out from the refrigerator (very hard crust). They could have at least heated it up a bit in an oven before serving... The staff is professional but... More

We stayed and we had a really lovely meal and thought the staff helpful and professional and the food was 1st class no complaints at all. Please ignore previous write ups and try for yourselves.

Although there are many restaurants in the town, this was the only one open on a sunny Monday evening so we had no choice but to eat there. Situated well overlooking the square of the pretty walled town it has a delightful dining terrace. The menu looked attractive with many regional specialities but failed in the execution. The lacklustre waiter... More
