We ate here on our second night in Saumur. The service was good and the dining room nicely appointed. The rabbit starter was under seasoned and lacked flavour until we added some salt and pepper to it. My wife had the fish dish of the day which was served on a bed of creamy risotto. Not a nice combination or to my wifes taste. I hade a pork loin covered in crust. It was large even for me, and I failed to eat it all. The wine was very good and with coffee to finish the total bill was just over 100 euros.

One of the best restaurants in Saumur a five minute walk from the town. The menus are simple to understand and the quality of the dishes and presentation are excellent! When that cheese board is wheeled out to your table you are spoilt for choice and the desserts are always to die for. This is a place where one is given a warm reception and made to feel very comfortable. Cedric, the young chef is very particular and imaginative with his dishes and his wife, Manuella, is the perfect hostess! Feliciations also on the recent birth of their two young baby boy twins!

Found by chance as staying in the Best Western Hotel nearby, nowhere near the centre of town. Charming little place with outside seating in warm weather. Friendly and efficient staff, a la carte or set priced menu. Nice atmosphere excellent food and good wine list reasonably priced

this restaurant is slightly off the main drag in Saumur but worth finding. the food was really good as was the services. its near the river and the outdoor setting is quiet and relaxing but is a small area.

On the island so about 10mins walk from the town centre. Only about ten tables so best to book. Very good food. Local menus, well executed and nicely presented. Very good value set menu which covers about half of the a la carte options. Good list of local wines. Homely feel.... like eating in someone's living room. So no need to dress up too much.
