    Definitely rushed compared to other meals we had in France. I'm not sure they actually had our reservation but we still got a table, albeit next to the toilet ???? Entrees were lukewarm but other than that the food was good.

    Ate outside on the edge of the bustling square: it was a public holiday. Lovely atmosphere. traditional food and wine. Would certainly return.

    Been here before and enjoyed it but this time the food was not good would not go back. Don't like to criticise too much but the food was dry needed some sauce, dry mash and vegetables. My wife's belly pork was disgusting the skin was almost raw with a big slab of fat which should have been been crispy she said the best thing on the plate was the carrot. My entrecote was as I asked rare but the fat bits weren't even warm they were like wax sorry but not a good experience. The staff were lovely.

    This is a tourist trap. The booking was not recorded and the reception was grudging, offset by friendly waiting staff. The food was unexceptional., the starter meagre. The house white wine is a disgrace, flat & oxidised: hardly an advert for the excellent wines of Saumur. We sent back the carafe but no credit was given.

    Nice bistro in a very pretty square. Most people were going for the specials board and the meal deal but I wanted a nice steak! A great steak arrived served with additional bread and some green leaves lightly dressed. Potatoes were ok but a tad disappointing, not the usual frites. We chatted to the next table who were British and regularly eat there and they said the frites were not the usual ones. Thought it very funny the translation on the menu which described the potato as Apple!!! pomme pomme. Super wine list and a good house wine by the carafe.

    I'm afraid we were really disappointed with the meal. We were saying earlier in the day how amazing French food is compared to Spain , where we were traveling from. We actually had a better meal in a two star Logis in the Pyrenees!

    Excellent, attentive service. More interesting than usual bistro menu, best suited for adults - teens in our group who don't eat as much meat found less of interest on the menu.

    My wife and I had a lovely meal at Bistrot de la Place. Between the two of us we had Griiled Sardines, Oysters, Steak , Lemon Tart and Gelati. The meals were very tasty. Pity about Pomme Frites which had obviously been cooked up twice and were delivered dark brown, oily, and floppy. Wine was reasonably priced. A good deal with The Fork 20% discount on everything.

    Food was good quality, however it seemed that non-French nationals were all sat out of the way by the toilets. Or was it just those customers who booked through the Fork and got a discount? Disappointing as I would expect that in Paris but not elsewhere!
