A unique and original restaurant! Who would not want to eat crepes in bathroom?! The food is of a good standard, but it is the surroundings that steal the show. The food did take a while to come out from the kitchen, understandable as it was very busy, but with so much to look at it did not affect... read more

This place is great, the concept is cool, decoration and furniture nice and fun. Kids Can play, get a make up... while waiting for their crêpe. Service efficient and friendly. But I even recommend it for adults only. Only thing you could dislike is the 2 services. On the weekends we could arrive at 19:15 or 21:30. No other option.... More

If you ever find yourself in Tours and you wish to go to a restaurant where the locals go to - especially those in their twens and thirties - then you should definitely come here. The place's interior design is extraordinary, the waiters caring, and the food is delicious. It's traditional French/Bretonne cuisine and the menu consists of a huge... More

This is a cute and quirky little restaurant with each section set up with a different theme – they are very cool so if you go you have to have a look through the whole place (upstairs also). We were in the garden section as we had a large group (16). The crepes were delicious, I had a vegetarian one... More

Good food, fun atmosphere, friendly staff & not too pricey. Also the decor is kitchy & very French. It's situated right by the main square (Place Plumereau). What's not to like?

Mamie Bigoude is a pun on 'Bigoudin', traditional lace headgear worn by Breton women, hence the numerous artistic references in the restaurant showing women with tall, lace, headdresses. Pancakes and cider are the basic fare served here. It's quite reasonably priced so you can take all the family. The waiters and waitresses were charming and attentive. We ate in the... More

This restaurant will tickle your funny bone and soothe your spirits. It is laid out on two floors, done up like an early 20th century home and furnished with period pieces and bizarre trimmings,. You may be seated in a wardrobe, in the breakfast nook, the maid's quarters or the bedroom, but around you there will be something to amuse,... More

First of all, I was amazed by the decorations, after being to many restaurants in Tours, this is one of the most unique and stylish restaurant. The service was excellent throughout the night and we had petit fondue and crepe which taste really good! Highly recommended!
