We visited le carrousel in mid July. What could we possibly remember?
The warm welcoming feeling and an overall lasting impression that this was one of the finest dining experiences we had in our three weeks in France.
The hostess attended to us as if we were the only ones in the restaurant. We weren't.
The garden space was neat and spaceous.

Traditional, very friendly restaurant with appended café that caters for the soldiers of the adjacent old cavalary school.
What could be more French?
Foie Gras Maison au Layon et son Pain Irlandais
Crépinette de Pied de Cochon Fait Maison
Chocolte fondant
with excellent open wines with each dish.

Me and my girlfriend dined at this nice, tiny restaurant after the Anjou Velo Vintage. The place is comfy and the decoration is "welcoming" (though it may be improved). The food, on the contrary, is just great: typical dishes from the local area, reviewed with a modern twist. Tasty and well dressed, every dish comes as a little treasure box to discover and enjoy.
The starting ingredients are of great quality (tasty vegetables, excellent meat) and the chef proved to know how to exploit them.
The service was excellent, while waiting we were offered a couple of incredible "amuse bouche" (among which the mouth watering crème brulée au fois gras) and we were timely and carefully served. We also had a bottle of local wine and in the end the price was ~30 euros each.

Came across this place whilst wandering around Saumur. Typically good French food beautifully presented and vast portions. Great wine too unsurprisingly. Very good service. Would eat here again

This is a very friendly place with great value menus 2 mins walk from the main street. it was very busy with locals having lunch and the army having coffee. We were directed to a dining room immediatley when we arrived by very friendly and helpful staff . Be aware that there are various set menus written on black boards on the walls of the dining room as well as the menu given to you before you choose.
