Good wine, good wine, nice small place. Menu is relatively standard stuff, but I have to say I was stunned at the high quality of the creme brûlée. To have such a common dish stand out is a pleasant surprise.

Came across this place by chance and certainly didn't regret it. The food was good - mushroom and coquille starter and salmon, pike for mains. Nice bottle of local Saumur white to go with it. Friendly service and good atmosphere too.

This is a great little place tucked in the street beside the Theatre. Cosy atmosphere; you are served by the owner who is very friendly and speaks English. Good range of food choices (meat, poultry and fish) and good wine choices. Diners are mostly local people. Recommended.

Small restaurant with excellent food and a great ambience, with very reasonable prices. Well located in the centre of Saumur, just a few steps from the big car park alongside the Loire.

On a Sunday eenin only one of the three dining areas in this traditional restaurant on side sreet behind the Theatre is open and the staffng pared down accordingly. The welcome was warm and business was good; mainly with multinational visitors to the town. I had mushrooms with rilettes combining two local products. The main course was of duck with... More

Stayed in the town for 3 nights and visited this restaurant twice. Run by a very welcoming couple. Good menu, well cooked and presented food. Fine choice of wines. Interesting decor with lots of books available to read on the area. Sunday night main clientele were French and the place was comfortably busy. Monday night was quieter with mainly tourists... More

We make a beeline for this unremarkable, unprepossessing-looking little bar/restaurant every time we are in the area because the service and the food are excellent. It is homely and friendly; the chef cooks everything himself and he obviously loves cooking because every dish is prepared with exceptional care and tastes wonderful. Today, for lunch, I had mussels cooked in butter,... More

Great food, great prices, genuine local fare and service. A really good restaurant just off the beaten tourist track behind the opera house. Excellent value for money - a place where the locals visit - I recognised the local baker there having a quiet smoke and drink with the owner. Very relaxed atmosphere, and between their English and our French... More

We always like to have a café here, or sometimes to eat. The service is always good and the prices are reasonable.

Fairly unprepossesing from the outside, this is a lovely restaurant. Unfussy, but welcoming, the food is straightforward, but very good. Starters of mushroom and cheese, and scallops were both excellent. Main courses of cod and rabbit were also good, though the pasta accompanying both was a bit of a let-down (best left to the Italians). Desserts of creme brulee and... More
