Holidaying in France and weary of its fine cuisine and excellent restaurants; missing your Sunday roast; missing the ambience of Berni Inns? Then this is the place for you: they even serve brown bread. La Mangeoire is a small restaurant on the main road from Saumur to Montsoreau but parking presents no problem as the restaurant has its own car... More

Discovered this by chance and were very pleased with the friendly welcome. The food was excellent and although it was a quiet evening the atmosphere was good thanks to the lady of the house who, although limited in English, went out of her way to help explain the menu. The place was spotlessly clean and the environment was good. The... More

We were able to sit outside which was good as the inside was a little dated and lacking in ambience. We assumed a Husband and Wife team with him in the kitchen and her serving. They were both welcoming and polite. The menu was a bit complex and the quality of the food disappointing compared to some other restaurants we... More

We had a really nice time at La Mangeoire, which is not near Nantes but near Saumur and the Abbaye of Fontevrault. The owners are really nice and welcoming; genuine and talented people making a traditional Loire Valley cuisine served in a genuine countryside decor with a large fireplace to enhance the atmosphere. Laure and Francis are both French but... More

Visited this restaurant twice as the food was so delicious. The service was excellent ,attentive and friendly. The rose wine was lovely and all courses chosen were fantastic. Would go back again if we return to Nantes. Highly recommended.

Busy saturday night and the restaurants were packed out. Managed to get a table in this restaurant and took some time to get the menus so wasn't hopeful about the service. As soon as we ordered the things turned around - it wasn't quick but we were in no hurry and the food was very good

We had Sunday lunch here. The service was very pleasant but overall this was a fairly uninteresting meal. Starters were better than the main courses. The house wine was good but totally outshone the food. We wouldn't return, there are too many far better eating places close by

We went to La Mangeoire for the first time in several years. I found the service excellent, and it represents good value for money - 2 very well-priced prix fixe menus (26 and 19 euros when we went). The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. In all, it made our evening and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More
