One of my favourite place in my home town. Street is calm, the prices are really affordable, the food is really good and gives you all the traditional and simple French meal!

“Great choice and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

I've given this restaurant 5 stars as really I couldn't fault it. There was a lot of choice on the set menus and the food was fresh, all at a very good price. It was a lovely evening so ate out on the terrasse which I'd booked and there was so much going on around us in the square it was quite entertaining. The waiters were friendly and service was very quick despite the number of customers. I would greatly recommend this restaurant. They do have 'pichets' of wine so a plus in my opinion!!

“Good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We too couldn't get into the Tonton so tried this instead. Good service, a lovely glass of the local sparkling wine for an aperitif, and a freshly cooked regional dish. The puddings were wonderful. Recommended.

“Fabulous meal & great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Having initially tried to reserve tables at the top two recommended restaurants in Saumur, we were amazed to find this one had space. Perhaps the only reason it wasn't heaving was because it is at the end of a long street rather than in one of the touristy squares. This meant it was beautifully quiet and provided a romantic setting. The menu was a small selection of local food and the lovely waitress (possibly owner?) was more than happy to talk us through each dish and make recommendations. The atmosphere was relaxed and we knew from the outset we were going to have a great evening.

Everything we ate was delicious! Really delicious! The 10hr roasted tomato, galipettes, steak, tuna, chocolate fondant and the best lemon pudding in the world! At €24 for three courses, this was excellent value. The wine list is local and again, the staff made helpful recommendations and we enjoyed a bottle of Saumur red.

Definitely try this bistro if you are in the area. I think it would be hard to beat for taste & value.

“Tuna dish was just what I needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

After first nights dissapointment this one really restored our faith in French cuisine. The name is suggesting something medieval, but the food is modern, I would even say visionary. The tuna dish had combination of medium cooked pieces and tuna tartar that was the diamond of the shoe. Excellent value too.
