The place is nice and the food is great. Presentation was fantastic. The host was very nice and made sure that we enjoyed the food. The chef came to talk to us and tell us about his food selection. We had the liver pate to start and the duck a l'orange, this was the best I had in France. The... More

This small but perfectly formed Restaraunt sits close to the banks of the Charante River. The food is fresh local produce cooked to Michelin standard perfection. We had the digestion menu for three of us, and the chef accommodated our vegetarian friend with a menu to match ours, which she said was fantastic. There is a wonderful selection of wines... More

Le Table de Marion, which has had a Michelin Star since 2012, has recently added a Plat Jour for 18 Euros. We had never eaten at this restaurant before but decided to try the Plat Jour and were quite delighted at the result. Two of the three bites that made up the Amuse Bouche were excellent while the third seemed... More

Discovering restaurants such as La Table de Marion in Saintes is one of the great joys of travelling by car through France. Unassuming from the outside, the lunch we had in this restaurant on our way to Paris was marvellous. We were given a very genuine welcome on arrival, and in no time found ourselves presented with some very original... More

We tried the lunch time lunch menu at 25e. The environment atmosphere and service were excellent; however the main course did take a long time to arrive. We started with an amuse bouche, of confit of tomato and two crunchy things, none of which was very memorable, all rather bland. The next course was a cold courgette soup, made from... More

Well deserved Michelin star, in a small, intimate restaurant. We found Marion's wife to be very welcoming and knowledgeable. This is not a traditional, stuffy Michelin restaurant and there was no standing on ceremony - but the food speaks for itself.

We were recommended this restaurant by the captain of the boat that we had rented for the day, he asked what our plans for lunch were rand offered to phone ahead to see if there was availability at this restuarant. It is very small - probably only about 8 tables and we were a party of 6 I hope that... More

We stopped due to the restaurant having a one-star in the 2015 michelin guide. The tasting menu was superb - excellent and well presented tasty dishes, real flare and delicacy throughout. The Maitre D' was very jolly and friendly, running the whole front of house on her own brilliantly. We felt the service was among the best we had all... More

We have spend a lot of time to return in this restaurant… But we have the same feeling : The place is not cosy for a restaurant… No character , no intimity. Correct food, a bit complicated and not so many choice. Correct choice of wines. A bit expensive at the end… Just average ...

Wow. This place is just great. Small pretty dining room with friendly, attentive staff. Food is the real attraction though and the dishes on when we visited were amazing. Tasty, balanced, unexpected and just so brilliantly planned and cooked. Fantastic. I've been trying to think why this isn't 5/5 for everyone who visits. I suppose it's not a big menu... More
