“Very decent restaurant with top quality service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Had a great meal here, 28 euros for 3 courses is a steal, had the mushroom terrine starter which was delicious. Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Tours and looking for a pleasing meal.

Service was excellent as well.

“Delicious and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Tours has an amazing number of restaurants so you could eat at a different one for weeks on end but having been here it would be hard not to return.
The quality was excellent with great seafood, game and meat courses and the desserts were mouth-watering. The food was excellent value (around 30 euros for 3 courses) and the presentation was attractive, particularly of the desserts. I have had worse meals that cost twice as much.
Staff speak reasonable English, certainly enough to cope with client needs, and are friendly and efficient. The restaurant is nicely decorated and being relatively small it has a nice, cosy atmosphere.
This place is popular with both tourists and locals so it´s highly advisable to make a reservation.

“One of the best in central Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

I have just spent 7 months in Tours and this is one of 2 restaurants that I considered excellent. A cosy little place that serves excellent food and is relatively inexpensive at 28 euros for 3 courses. I went there many times, often with visitors from home. The final time I went there was the best meal I had in Tours. The chap who runs the front of house provides an excellent service, having spent time working in top restaurants in London.

“Original delicious menu, but very reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Original menu including both seafood and meat selections. We tried both, but they are very delicious and also, desserts are very good too. Service is good too. Compared with the quality and service, price is not expensive. With 1 bottle of wine, it took around 95 euro for two person. Not too big space, so better to make a reservation before diner.

“Excellent lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Found this via trip advisor and would thoroughly recommend. We had the a la carte, still good value, and the duck lasagne was to die for. Lots of wine by the glass too
