Popped in while walking to Saumur centre from Ibis Styles. Old fashioned proper cooking done extremely well for €20 for 3 courses and wine at €5 for 50cl pichet which was light and fresh. Lovely people as well.

Having been in France for a fortnight and having encountered too many traditional restaurants serving duck in the only two ways it comes, this restaurant was a revelation. We had the fish terrain and the porc with fraise sauce which sounds odd but was excellent, puddings rice with salted caramel sauce and ice cream with melon. A decent reasonable priced... More

I ate on Saturday evening and it was wonderful. Madame (husband is the chef) was great and welcoming. Delicious local wines. I had a salmon terrine starter and a lovely steak cooked just right with vegs and potato. Creme caramel for dessert finished it off. VERY reasonable and as I said, delicious.

Enjoyed a wonderful three course lunch with wine for €12.50. Very, friendly and full of local workers having lunch - always a good sign. We enjoyed every course but especially the apricot clafoutis. In fact, the food was much better (and three times cheaper) than a Michelin recommended restaurant we tried!

We found this restaurant by accident as we were staying at the Mecure Hotel which doesn't have a restaurant. It is within walking distance of the Mecure but as I have reduced mobility we popped round in the car as my brother had looked around before we went out and said there was plenty of parking all along the road...

I had a substantial salad with chicken and oats cheese and a main course of Lon de Porc accompanied with mushroom sauce, courgettes... More

A short walk across the first bridge from Ibis Styles, this turned out to be a great choice for dinner. We arrived minutes after they opened to find several tables already occupied - mostly by English speakers; but don't let that put you off :) - and it filled up nicely with a mix of locals and tourists. We started... More

We were staying at the Best Western and could have easily walked in to town - but chose this small (what I assume is a) family run place. Great value and quality plat du jour French cuisine. The waitress was charming and made us feel very welcome while handling 2 difficult large French family tables. This restaurant merits your support.
