Start with the snails - a generous portion drenched in lashings of garlic butter. The mains were good, although unremarkable. The dessert was spectacular - chocolate cake with a melting middle. In the summer months the tables are out in a quiet courtyard. Intimate, with great service.

We had snails 3 ways followed by sweetbreads and mushrooms, all delicious .
The strawberry tart was divine. Good service, good food. Highly recommended.
Open on Monday when most closed.

Absolutely delicious food at this very popular little restaurant in Saumur town. Park right outside, very friendly and helpful staff, delicious escargots and good value for money!

Superb restaurant with great food and attentive staff. My wife had white asparagus followed by the cod, whilst I ate foie gras followed by lamb, we both had the strawberry sable dessert. All the courses were beautifully presented and of outstanding quality. We ate on a Thursday night at 8pm and the restaurant was totally full and was turning several walk in guests away, most of whom then made reservations for another evening.

Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Saumur, but make a reservation in advance.

We ate at L'Escargot twice a few weeks ago when we were staying at the Chateau de Verrieres (another review to be posted), and the food on both nights was superb. The lamb for main course was delicious as were all the courses. The restaurant is also open on a Sunday night which a lot of the restaurants in Saumur are not. I look forward very much to eating there again when in Saumur.
