“Our best meal in Saumur”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by the proprietor of Le Patio Saumur. Its location is easy to overlook because it is just off the square and there is restoration work going on at the church immediately in front of it.

The chef/owner thoughtfully prepared each incredible dish. We could see him at work at the far end of the restaurant as we enjoyed each course. He made terrific recommendations for wines to try by the glass.

He was friendly but not intrusive as he served us a truly memorable meal.

“Perfect birthday meal!”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Wonderful restaurant, fantastic food, great service and we celebrated my birthday in style! We were so full when we left because of the chef Gatean's fantastic fresh homemade food. This place is definitely worth a visit.

“Overall Very Good”
Reviewed 1 September 2011

Visited this restaurant 3 times in the last couple of months. The food is very good, and presented very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. On the third visit we were slightly disappointed with the waiting time between courses, however this would not stop us returning.

“A warm atmosphere and truly bistronomique”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

This is our second visit to Les Canons and each time we have really enjoyed the food, service and friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Behind the relaxed atmosphere however, is a team who work hard and offer excellent service and dishes 'a l française'.

Les Canons is hidden to the left of the church in Place St. Pierre, you could easily miss it and be drawn into the more obvious restaurants around Place St. Pierre, but do not make that mistake!

There is also a good selection of local wines and even a local beer, Le Piautre, along with locally sourced food in season. The decor is contemporary bistro and very pleasing.

We will be recommending Les Canons to our guests and no doubt return there soon ourselves.
