“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This was recommended to us by Chateau des Forges where we were staying. So pleased with the recommendation. Small restaurant, minimalist decor, excellent service - the very smart waiting staff spoke good English. The food was beautifully presented and was simply delicious. They had a good wine list. I can't comment on the prices as my menu had no prices, although my partner's menu did have prices. What a lovely touch! I hope to go back to Angers and would definitely choose to eat at this restaurant again.

“Quality dining at attractive riverside location”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Booked on recommendation of our host as being the closest restaurant to our out-of-town B&B. We were subsequently pleased to note on TripAdvisor that the Belle Rive was rated as the #3 restaurant in Angers! It's in a nice location on the banks of the Maine, and it has modern and minimalist décor. Having been immediately welcomed and seated, there was a mildly irritating fifteen minute hiatus before we were brought menus or attended to in any way. Our waiter spoke amazingly good English and was very helpful throughout. Compact but imaginative fixed price menu (Euros 27 to 44, the latter if one had three courses plus cheese) and a delicious complimentary amuse-bouche. The dishes we chose were excellent in all respects. Good wine list, reasonably priced.

“Good food, good service but quiet and soulless dining room”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Really good food, well thought out with good service and very charming hosts.
However the restaurant is fairly soulless despite being adjacent to the river
Possibly caused by the older diners in this young vibrant university town

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Ate lunch here on a recent trip to Angers. I found everything about the restaurant to be truly excellent. The service was professional and unobtrusive and the presentation and quality of the food were both first class. The menu was small but they were able to produce 2 vegetarian courses( which were not on the menu) without any difficulty for one of our party.

This is not a 'light lunch' restaurant but if you are in Angers and want a special 2 hour 'French' lunch then I'd highly Belle Rive.
