Good location, good food

Many of the restaurants in the centre of Bourges close at 2 p.m., so, if you're looking for a late lunch, you're out of luck. Fortunately this restaurant stays open, and is quite large, so you're likely to find a table. The restaurant specializes in Alsatian food, so sausages and beer are good... read more

Surprising enough this place, part of a chain of restaurants by the same name, is much better than we had expected. There are not as many restaurants or cafes to choose from in the historic part of Bourges, and regrettably, aside from the beautiful Cathedral St. Etienne de Bourges, a World Heritage site, the adjacent gardens and the half-timbered houses,...

Who said France has a mild climate! Today the temp topped 33C. After walking about for 2.5 hours my wife and I were ready for a break. Ordered up a tall mug of ice cold beer, diet coke and a planche Alsacienne. This appetizer platter ( big enough for two) consisted of toast points, 2 miniature baguettes, Iberian ham, pickles,...

I came to Bourges to see the cathedral, and wanted lunch too. This restaurant had a lot of specialities from Alsace - and I am one who cannot resist Flammekuchen - just imagine pizza but German. It was just what I wanted. The server who was also the manager was good, (timely, responsive, etc). It was not exceptional, but it... More

After arriving late into Bourges we arrived here at about 10pm. The service was great and so was the food. We had a pot of steamed mussels and salmon along with a couple of cocktails and a bottle if wine along with deserts. I wouldn't say the meal was particularly pricey, it's generally what I would expect to pay for... More

Arrived late in Bourges, was glad to find this place opposite the cathedral still serving. Friendly staff, excellent goat's cheese salad starters & bottle of Menetou Salon. Overall impression marred by poor moules marinieres -- two pots were left half-finished. Staff made no attempt to discover why.

The food is poor value and usually on the cold side when served. My partner had food poisioning after eating cold food here. To be blunt it is 'boil in the bag rubbish' and for gullible tourists only. They are making big profits on the disgraceful cuisine and the high prices they charge. STAY CLEAR FOLKS unless you have no... More

We came across this restaurant last night by accident and had a huge seafood meal for 2, which came with 2 glasses of champagne and 2 desserts. My other half had moules frittes and my daughter had a sort of pizza, all the food was great and the service was fine. The location is noisy but we could see that... More

After visiting the Cathedral, it was already 2:30pm. Being well aware that many restaurants close by 2:00pm, I asked the young waitress if they still served lunch. She said yes and we sat at a table on the terrace, on a busy street but with a nice view of the cathedral. We were given menus but the waitress never came... More
