It’s clear and simple – in Anjou, we love good food! And the proof is that some restaurants fill up every night without fail. You even sometimes have to book weeks in advance to reserve a table at the excellent Chinese restaurant Dazuma. It’s hard not to indulge when you have restaurateurs that offer such delicious, inventive and innovative cuisine made with extremely high quality local produce. You only have to take a drive through the Loire Valley to see for yourself – with its vegetable tunnels, orchards and crops of all kinds, the region grows a fabulous range of produce, giving local chefs inspiration for their recipes.
The dishes of Anjou’s gastronomic restaurants reflect the flavours and colours of these incredible products.
One Michelin-star restaurant
In the heart of the vineyards in Champ-sur-Layon, you will find La Table de la Bergerie, the second Michelin-star restaurant in the Angevin area. Here, a concise and seasonally based menu is prepared with the utmost skill by chef David Guitton. The restaurant serves the organic wines of Domaine de la Bergerie, the family’s estate. La Table de la Bergerie is the ideal place for a luxury gourmet moment while exploring the scenery of the Corniche angevine, which winds between the Loire and hills of vines.
Top eateries around every corner
More recently, a wave of ‘bistronomic’ or gastronomic restaurants has also inundated the city, offering a wide selection of eateries with more affordable prices and excellent, inventive and modern cuisine. Among them, some of the most popular with locals are Autour d’un cep, Sens, Osé or even Le Pois Gourmand and Les 3 Lieux - La Table.
For a mouthwatering culinary moment between visiting the city sights and the surrounding area, you’ll have plenty of choice.
