The food and service were very good. A great location on the square. My wife had the carpaccio and I had the steak (saignant). All very well prepared and presented. The additional benefit was the jazz/rock and roll band that played opposite in the square....More

I lived in Saumur for one year and I went to that place many times. Great cuisine and very friendly staff. The menu offers local specialities cooked perfectly.

Nice location, fabulous wine list, food OK but vegetables on both dishes were under cooked and met with a gallic shrug.... indicative of the demand and season perhaps. That being said lots of choice on the square for an alternative meal.

We enjoyed dinner here, in the center of historic Saumur, on the square in front of the St. Pierre church. We appreciated the friendly, efficient service one busy summer evening. (Call ahead to reserve, as the outdoor tables were all reserved the night we visited.)...More

Hake was very good but steak was tough as old boots, steak tartare was not as good as in other restaurants (even though we are from the UK my wife loves this dish) Service was rather slow even though it was early in the evening

We ate outside and the service was excellent. The menu is good and the quality of the food was very good. The square was lively but relaxing and it was a wonderful evening.

Seated next to an open window on the second floor of Bistrot de la Place we had a picturesque view of the Saturday market below us. Happily, we ordered the lemon/orange aperitif of the day, followed by oysters, then hake with hollandaise sauce for our...More

Good food and good wine: here's what you get at the Bistrot de la Place! We serve fresh homemade food that you can choose off the "a la carte" menu or from our set menus. And if you're feeling peckish during the day, we also offer oysters, cured meat and cheese platters. During spring and summer, our outside terrace will allow you to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this small and cute square of Saumur.
