O Saveurs is a charming restaurant in a peaceful avenue on the left bank, just 4 minutes' walk from the cathedral. It re-opened 5 Sept 2016 under new ownership.
The owners are a couple: he runs front of house with enthusiasm and attention to detail. She is in the kitchen, preparing exquisitely presented dishes that are cooked to perfection.
There is no printed menu but a well-balanced range of freshly sourced dishes to choose from on the blackboard. My sister and I chose foie gras to start. It was very good and artistically presented with slices of fig, a slightly spicy freshly-made mango chutney and toast. To follow, one of us had kidneys in mustard sauce and the other, salmon fillet in a lemon butter sauce. Both were excellent - the salmon was particularly succulent.
To round off our meal, we chose a strawberry and redcurrant tart. Although I am not a great fan of crème patissiere and I prefer a more crumbly pastry, it made for a refreshing end to an excellent meal.
They have a good-sized garden at the back and hope to have it ready by Spring 2017.
Parking is easy and at under 100 euros for two, including wine and coffee, it is well worth the detour.
