We came upon this restaurant by chance while driving from Gennes to Saumur and looking for somewhere for lunch. Given that it was 36 degrees outside, it was wonderful to walk the 100 metres inside the caves to find the restaurant at a lovely comfortable...More

We were desperately looking for the place for a dinner at later evening at French country side and although this restaurant was totally booked, we were lucky to get the place there. Standard menu, but very rich and tasty with very reasonable prices.

Our group enjoyed the mushroom menu which was very classic french food. The tradtional breads and mushrooms were delicious. Plenty of food and nice relaxing cave atmosphere. Worth the price for what you get

We stopped here as we were cycling past and fancied a wine tasting. We wheeled our bikes inside, only to walk on for nearly 200m into the cave. It was incredible. The lovely owner did a quick wine tasting for us, not expecting us to...More
