excellent menu, interesting choices

This restaurant still produces excellent food and the menu is great value for money but I feel that they may be trying too hard and its not quite as it was in years past. Still recommended though.

We chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance of our hotel and they were able to make reservations for us. We were seated promptly upon arrival and had a lovely meal. We went with their wine recommendations for a local wine and were very happy with their suggestion. Each of us chose different entrees and mains and traded... More

When visiting a city we usually eat lunch in the centre. This time I consulted Trip advisor and found the Bistro on the outskirts of Tours. When I phoned to make the reservation, the member of staff informed me that as it was holiday time, they were only serving a special limited menu 'Estival' at 25 euros. As it was... More

We often eat at Trip Advisor recommended restaurants, and usually they meet expectations.....this one is an exception....in my opinion good looking, relatively tasteless food! This restaurant was close to our hotel and we were undecided whether to eat there or at the Bistro...we chose the Bistro and wish we had stayed at the hotel. The food, I thought, was distinctly...

The Bistro is the little brother of the Restaurant Barrier. Very good cuisine at a very reasonable price.

Visited this bistro with family whilst studying abroad in tours. Amazing food and the formule (which is a lunch set menu for those English speakers) did not disappoint. Very cheap for good French food and very fresh. I would recommend getting here right at opening time which I recall is midday. On weekdays it's always packed with regulars - which... More

When we had such a good experience in the Charles Barrier restaurant we also want to try the bistro. Is was close to our hotel so that also was a good argument to go there. It surely was a nice surprise! We had a good dinner for a very reasonable price. The setting depends on which table you have but... More

Normally I am not a big fan of Bistrot but I must say that I was quite surprised by the food quality in this bistrot. Definitely not the same as bistots in Paris.... Service was really good, done by a young dynamic team. As for the food, everything was nicely prepared and tasted good. Can recommend this nice restaurant outside... More
