We arrived at 8.00pm and only 2 tables were occuppied. Ten minutes after we were seated the restaurant filled with French diners. A Parisien wine merchant who knew his food said 'it was excellent and affordable'. It certainly was. Superb food, good service and full on a Tuesday night in early Feb when most restaurants were empty. I would certainly recommend.

Many restaurants in Angers are closed on Monday evening, was therefore glad to find our host picked this one from the few ones available. I would have probably not noticed or found it had I walked around myself. The place filled up completely by the time we were leaving, doing so in a happy mood. Staff very helpful, knowledgeable, switching to english easily. We had the same seafood starters; then meat for main course in different forms - including the steak tartare. All prepared nicely, our little group of three were happy indeed with the quality. Recommended wines fitted perfectly, Make sure you can handle the restaurant's flagship desert - Crémet d'Anjou. We ordered all sauces available with this lovely creamy desert; chocolate, caramel and raspberry. Delicious. With some coffee the check ended at about €140 for three.

Well said, Mactavish. We, too, had a great meal and a great experience when we dined there in mid-June. Our food was perfectly cooked and we found the host/chef genuinely charming and exuberant. The toilets (and this from someone very fussy about such things) were immaculate. The restaurant was crowded, but this only seemed to add to the atmosphere, and service was polite and prompt. The quality of the food was first rate.

I read LucanPortsmouth's review and was astonished, we were there on 9th July also and had one of the best meals and most enjoyable nights for ages. The three of us were greeted by the owner who offered us anything on the menu for our daughter in a smaller portion and if she didn't like it he would take it back and she could have whatever she wanted instead.
Our starters of grilled aubergine and lobster were a delight.
I had the fillet steak which was great quality, not tough at all, the foie gras sauce was an excellent compliment to this. My wife and daughter both had the turbot which was perfectly cooked, not cooked to a dry mass like a British fish supper, my daughter is quite picky about food and thought the fish wonderful!
The staff were attentive without being intrusive and the owner spoke to us a few times over the evening to ensure we were enjoying ourselves but he was certainly not reminiscent of anything Gordon Ramsey would comment on.
The desserts were lovely, the house dessert was beautiful, not dumped on the plate, however the height of it caused it to resemble the leaning tower of Pisa.
At the end of the night the owner gave our daughter a small present and we left thinking we would certainly return there next time we were in Angers. Perhaps those who are used to McDonalds should stick to it.

It was like being sat in one of Ramsey's programmes with an owner who wanted to be everywhere: outside bringing in trade, front of house and popping up in the kitchen at the pass. They even had there own "famous" dessert and some freaky dolls above the door. Maybe we were unlucky or was it because we were a young couple, as other reviews here seem ok?? Staff seemed a little incincere and seemed to walk by continuously but never clearing your plates. Food was average, the little l'escargot seemed lost in a huge piece of puff pastry. Main course of fillet of turbot came out undercooked and still translucent and apparently this was how it came (other diners didn't look the same and cooked turbot certainly isn't jelly like and see through......) but the beurre Blanc was good. Fillet of Beef had little taste and was tough for what you expect in France. Desserts ok, although straight out of the cooler and dumped on a plate.

In summary there are a lot of better restaurants around, but if it's a Monday night and everywhere else is shut including Macdonalds give it a go.
