We had an amazing night with very very good food at this restaurant. We ordered 5 dishes and 3 desserts with the 3 of us. Really all the dishes were very delicious. Very lovely owner and friendly staff. I recommend this place. Have a seat...and enjoy for the rest the night. Great evening sun on the terrace!More

The restaurant offers several different "tapas" options, recommending one-and-a-half to two dishes per person for dinner. As explained by the staff, all products are from the region (and travel less than 30 km to get to the restaurant). The famous pied de cochon aux lentilles...(pig's feet with lentils) was very tasty; it comes from the award-winning butcher's shop (Girardeau) literally just across the road - local production at its finest! Everything was delicious - the dishes were flavorful and creative. We had the famous pied de cochon, fleur d'oignon with truffle oil, stuffed patidou (a gourd similar to a small pumpkin), and a warm chocolate apple cake for dessert. Friendly staff, very reasonably priced (about 5-11 euros per dish), and relaxed atmosphere on the terrace. Merci pour un excellent repas !More

Having had a bad dinner the night before I looked on Trip Advisor and was convinced this was the place for us. The restaurant is on a pretty bustling pedestrianised street with outdoor tables. Our tapas were incredible - every dish was mouth watering. Alexander...the chef talked to us after dinner and was very hospitable. We had a lovely evening and we will always remember 1929. A must visit.More

1929 is a must visit if you are in Saumur! We had a fantastic meal here; every bit of it was delicious. The owner came to our table to explain every dish, which was lovely. We sat outside, and the street is pedestrianised, with a...live musician playing. Very reasonably priced for amazing food.More

Very good food with local products. Not a big menu but because of that it is very well made! However, TripAdvisor states that it is in the 'cheapest' category, but because you need more than 1 dish for a full meal the total cost will...be higher.More

Fantastic restaurant! - we enjoyed the food so much that we ate lunch and went back again for dinner on the same day! Wonderful to see a chef so passionate about his creations. Don’t miss it!

Loved this place - the chef chats to all customers to explain the menu. We loved every dish! Good prices and fabulous food, full of flavours.

I've had the pleasure of eating at 1929 twice & can thoroughly recommend it both for the quality of the food (fresh, local ingredients &, very unusually for France, great for vegetarians) as well as the very personal service from the proprietor/chef, who talks you...thro' the menu options himself! Will be back again on my next visit to Saumur in May...More
