We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant, which we booked on the recommendation of the owner of the cottage we were staying in, situated in the village centre. The ambience is lovely for a traditional village restaurant (stone walls mixed with tables set with white tablecloths) and the two members of staff on duty were very friendly. The table... More

A stone in my fish, a hair in the butter and a horrible service, I have no words to express my disappointment. The restaurant looks very good from outside but I was terribly disappointing.

La Licorne - The Unicorn - is a restaurant sited on the high street of Fontevraud l'Abbaye although its entrance is through a delightful garden from St Catherin's Alley which runs parallel to that street. There is no parking on the premises but there is plenty of free parking in the village car parks very near by. This is a... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant, the garden is lovely to sit in the evenings and the food is good although drinks are a little expensive. Maybe we would have enjoyed the experience more if our French was more advanced.

Excellent meal, excellent service and very good value, particularly the 29€ menu. It happened to be my birthday so I was looking for something above ordinary and La Licorne certainly delivered.

We returned to La Licorne after the passing of a few years to find the same high quality cuisine in a peaceful elegant setting. The service was immaculate and took place in a relaxed atmosphere, all combining to make a perfect evening.

We spent much time deciding which restaurant to go to for this warm sunny evening. We had not checked Tripadvisor before our decision and were glad that we had not because we might have been put off by some of the reviews. There were four tables of two and one table of three being served that night, all in the... More

Great atmosphere, great food! We wanted to have a short lunch break before seeing the Abbey, but we ended up being at this restaurant for more than 2 hours. The food was great, but the service too slow. It was perhaps because we were rushing. All the dishes looked great; deserts were outstanding.
