Somewhat hard to review a place based on a New Years Eve Bash but felt it merited a review since there were not that many ....

We are starying at the Chateau de Challain and our hosts arranged reservations for us here on New Year's Eve. It was a crazy gala that we arrived at 10:00 PM for and didn't leave until 2:00 AM when most of the rest of the crowd (generally 50+ in age) were still dancing away the night.

Service was very good given that there were probably 300 people at the event. Courses were a bit slow in coming out but expect this was deliberate to let folks enjoy the music and dancing.

Probably 10 courses in all but here are some highlights

1) A few initial smoked fish appetizers
2) Wondeful homard/lobster dish
3) Flavorful and appropriately prepared venison or elk
4) Cheese plate with some of the more interesting cheeses we've had so far in France

So would love to go back for a more traditional dinner based on our own experience and the other reviews.

We visited Le Pigeon on Thursday 20th October at the recommendation of our B&B Host. We had the Chefs Menu, 8 courses plus 3 glasses of wine to accompany. The food was the best any of the four of us had ever eaten ( so many highlights) , The choice of wine was superb; the Sauvignon Blanc the best any of us had ever tasted. Despite the fact that were not fluent French speakers ( which can be a problem in France ) the service was attentive, professional, patient and good humoured. If you are in the Angers area go there - you will not be disappointed.
