Booking a table is a must! Lunch is relaxed with friendly helpful staff. The menu can be limiting in choice but always excellent.

Dining at Le Scorlion is a good experience. From the moment you arrive the service is attentive. The menu is varied, with something to suit all tastes. Local fish is good. This is fine dining in St Jean d'Angely. Not cheap, but well worth the experience.

Difficult to criticise very much. Lunchtime set three course menu and we had a very tasty soup entree, grey mullet plate followed by cafe gourmand (a very good espresso style coffee with three small "taster" desserts. We had a 50cl bottle of Rose wine (although we were brought the wring one - by the time we noticed, we had started... More

We have dinner at Le Scorlion every time we visit St.Jean d'Angely (which is three times a year on our journey through France from the UK) The food is always beautifully cooked and presented with a good choice on the main menus as well as the à la carte. The wine list is well chosen and Joël is always helpful... More

Quiet, little restaurant located near the abbey. Food was very good, had the crab cannelloni and bream-both yummy, 'the surprise' course on the menu was veal which was very soft and tasty. The staff were friendly and welcoming, they served the children's meals quickly and looked after us well.

We visited here with some friends who live in France. The Food and Service are excellent. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is nicely done. We visited at lunch time when it is possible to have food - 'plat du jour' or from the extensive menu. It gets busy at lunchtime and I would recommend that you book a... More

Very good food, the service was great. Only one high chair which was a pain. They had an outside, into the abby. We tried the surprise main, which was very good.

My wife and I went with friends for a Saturday lunch. We all opted for the mid priced menu ( 26 euros per person). It was several years since I have been to this restaurant and it was better than ever. We were given 4 different amuse bouche, including sweet little black olive cakes and a sensational courgette cold creamed... More
