This is one of the best for lovely food at a bargain price. A good but reasonable wine list where you have no need to worry just enjoy. Hard to find but very much worth the effort. Need to book in advance.

Great food & service from owner/chef/front of house, real character. If matching cutlery is your bag this ain't the place. Proper French cooking & a happy humorous owner. Our best experience in Saumur.

French traditional cooking. Large range of local wine available with meals and to buy. Restaurant in a quiet street on eastern side of the town. Lovely atmosphere. Medium price.
