Dear customer, We are really surprised about your comment since we evidently serve the same portion at every table... You may have chosen a starter portion and your neighboor a main course ? Sincerly yours, Bistrot de la Place

Started with a really good mojito, not too sweet and good for the weather. Decent food, although quite expensive compared to quieter local restaurants.

Description
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.
