We had time to kill on Sunday before our visit to a Cave in Saumur and decided to go to Montreuil – Bellay for lunch. We wandered through the village looking at the antiques stalls and arrived at La Barbacane which overlooks the Chateau. Although we didn’t have a reservation they soon found us a table for two, and what a great restaurant it is. The waiter was very polite and put up with our pigeon French. We ordered a Calzone pizza each and we were not disappointed it was huge, very tasty with plenty of filling so much so that we couldn’t face a dessert. Lovely restaurant in a good position and we would recommend it without hesitation

You know how it is.... lunch time and two waiters running around like headless chickens. Well if your prepared to wait a little once you get a table and tell them what you want, oh a dont expect the meals to arrive at the same time it is worth the wait. Moule frites and a pizza..... they were massive!!! so make sure you have an appetite.

With just a glaas of wine bottle of water, ask for their bottle de Eau, and two coffees 27.50 euros not bad but absolutely fully/over stuffed.

They speak very good English too!!

I visit family in Montreuil Bellay four or five times a year and the Barbican is my absolute favourite place to eat! Sumptuous good food and wine! Great moules, amazing chocolate mousse and delicious pâté. The presentation is fantastic and anyone who has has cause to complain must be in the minority as I've never had a bas meal here in ten years! C'est magnifique! The rillet salad is to die for when they have it on the specials board! Friendly, reasonably priced, lovely staff! Fully of locals which just goes to show how good it actually is!!

We have eaten here on several occasions and each time it has been good. Have been with my daughter who is a vegetarian and they have been helpful. Sat outside with views of the chateau is lovely. Food has always been prepared just how we like it....French.

This restaurant is opposite the castle,it is nicely positioned BUT the service is poor. I ordered a . dessert. When it arrived the dessert resembled a pink blob with sponge fingers and spray cream. I told the waitress that this was not a tira-mi-su, she insisted that it was! She did not offer an alternative. When the bill arrived I asked her to remove it l. She called the owner who flatly refused to take it off the bill. the food was mediocre, service poor and expensive.
