Lovely meal, really loved my first course (foie gras) and the lemon dessert. Wine was good being matched with the meal. In general great service. Atmosphere lacked bit of warmth would be the only slight thing. Overall a wonderful evening - would highly recommend eating here if you are in the area.

This is a one star restaurant and service shows that. The food was presentated very nice and appetizing, and this was sure a star. BUT the winelist is nothing to boast over. We are in a famous winedistrict and a good wine of Cabarnet France must be at least 8-10 years old when drinking. No such wine on the list.
(the bottle of water 6.5 euro!). A restaurant like this in Sweden dont get a star! But it is worth a visit!

We visited this restaurant last night as a treat on our two week holiday. It was wonderful; we ate the cheapest meal but it was beautifully presented and an absolute joy. The staff were attentive but not overpowering. It was so good we are going again next Friday as well. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Sue Dymock and Brian Ritchie.

Well situated near the centre of Saumur a very pleasant restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly. The menu is full of imagination, but mostly based on things we've seen/eaten in other top restaurants around the world. They try hard to impress and sometimes it works, but the sometimes
the choices could be better. Some may find it over complicated and too show-offy, but we did enjoy the meal and the wine selection is refreshing as its heavily waited to local wines.

Hate to be the odd one out among raving reviews and would have given 2 stars if it wasn't Michelin rated. For a Michelin rated restaurant, this was way off. We are no foodies but we appreciate good food and wine. My partner and I had the menu... Started off well enough with a pre starter of sushi like salmon and ginger/herb soup. Bread was superb but apparently the waitress deemed it fit to ration it... She said to ask later if we wanted a second piece!!! That was a first for us in any restaurant! And of course we didn't bother to ask for more...The starter of foie gras with eel was creative but the fishy taste didn't quite pair well. My partner's main of salmon was at best a "decent" while my pollack was passable. Dessert was a total mess. Was recommended by the waiter as the house's more popular choice - cotton candy, Churros with chocolate dip, mint marshmallows, a scoop of ice cream, which I couldn't tell what flavor it was, and ginger beer! The theme was perhaps interesting... Carnival fare? But not in a Michelin starred place. The bill took forever to come. We had allocated 2 hours but it went way past 3. The French couple at the next table were each amusing themselves playing with their phones while waiting!
