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!

The setting is just amazing, the restaurant is decorated like a french home from back in the '50s, with very odd features such eating in a bathroom or a bedroom... Very original ! Service is pretty gold and the food is great for such a kind of "crêperie", a great venue for families and friends.

The same as the previous review we came across this little gem by chance. It is a lovely out of the ordinary place, like nothing I've ever been to before. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the food was delicious. I loved the extraordinary décor. Everywhere you turn brings a smile to your face. We had lunch there... More

We stumbled across this whilst wandering the streets and I fell in love with quirky decor! We really enjoyed the food there and if we had more time definitely would have gone back. It would lend itself well to bigger groups but was also nice for just the 2 of us

I had lunch at Mamie Bigoude. What can be said about food ? Especially when the specialty is crepes (Brittany pancakes) and cider. It's fine, no more, no less. But you go to Mamie Bigoude for the ambiance and the design of the house, which is very creative, and a kind of fresh air in Tours. I will go there... More
