Find all of the waterside restaurants and cafés in Angers

As soon as fine weather arrives, you remember that Angers is a waterside city. Indeed, nothing could be truer since the city lies at the confluence of the Maine and the Loire. At the first ray of sun, terraces and cafés with a river view understandably fill up quickly.

People hurry down there for a stress-free moment and to sample local specialities – freshly caught pike-perch, eel or pike come served with beurre blanc, delicately stuffed with sorrel or prepared whitebait-style.

There’s a lovely holiday feel to lunching or dining by the river or taking a Sunday outing to Béhuard, Bouchemaine or the romantically bucolic Ile Saint-Aubin.

You might even have the pleasure of an impromptu concert where you will want to get up and dance, or be tempted by an outing on a boat.

To combine this delicious and enchanting time by the river with some sport, hop on your bike along one of the cycle paths of the Loire à Vélo route. You’ll get off the beaten track and enjoy an original taste of the gentle Angevin way of life.
