“Superbly fresh”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

Fantastic - really fresh food and very well presented. Were able to create a delicious vegetarian option too (not always easy in France!).

“Not quite as good as last year”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Twice visited this hols. Firstly a la carte and enjoyed quite an expensive meal. David and I started off with salmon tartare. My first tartare and it was ok but not sure I will have anything tartare again. We both had a very good prawn risotto. Finished with a trad Anjou cream dessert and David had a kind of rum baba. Nice wine, aperitifs and David had a Royal Combier to finish(a bit like grand magnier). A good meal about £130
Last evening we had the fixed price menu at 20 euros. A much lesser mortal than the a la carte. The only fish was sardines and David hardly touched his and did not think much of his Anjou cream dessert. So not a good evening. Cost about £70
Got a mention recently in the Telegraph.

“The praise was justified...”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

The reviews made me want to try this reastaurant in Saumur; the praise was entirely justfied. Elgenat interior and tableware, with food and wines to match, and most reasonable prices,The
Gaspacho de petits pois et asperges,cigarette de maquereau
was memorable.

“Elegant dining with professional service.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

A well set out dining area with 20 covers unless you are unfortunate to get a table for two just outside the toilet. Nice fresh flower decorations on each table add an air of elegance to proceedings. The set menu is good value but very restricted. The a la carte menu can be quite expensive.Food is of excellent quality and beautifully presented. Service is efficient and very professional. A good wine list with some excellent local wines adds to the overall pleasure of a visit here. Best to book I think.
