Close to the place we stayed Very friendly and helpful staff. I would recommend the fish sandre au beurre blanc which was amazing. Reservation is recommended as the place was fully booked the night we went and the restaurant had the turn down some arriving guests.
Very pleasant service, and the serving staff were most helpful. Convenient location with parking on the opposite side of the road. We were given the choice of eating indoors or in the garden, where there were awnings. The food was excellent and beautifully presented.
Very welcoming, excellent service. Very nice dishes. Children's meal disappointing - chicken nuggets and chips - would prefer some typical French options. Toilets disappointing in terms of hand towels and toiletries.
Googled a traditional restaurant on our way to Saumur. Great little find. Boys loved their steak and the creme brulee was to die for. Highly recommend.
Perfect reception along with an excellent choice of a quality meal
