Having had several gourmet meals we needed something informal and found it here. Excellent salads and superb steak! We shared the chef's salad as a starter (a good move as the portions were large) and followed this with a magret de canard (rosé) and an entrecôte steak (seignant) which was cooked to perfection. A reasonably priced bottle of Reuilly was... More

We chose the restaurant by accident, as a nearby top of the charts was closed… Excellent surprise: the meat is cooked on the indoor grill to perfection, and we where surprised to receive before the côte de bœuf a very copious “paté” and a “terrine”. Better be hungry, you will enjoy it to the last bit!

A good place to enjoy a decent steak , nice ambience and good service . The only criticism that I would make is that the toilets are not very clean which doesn't give a very good impression !

Having asked Madame at the excellent Hotel St Jean for a good steak recommendation, she directed us to this homely establishment. Stick to a grilled meat order here and you won't go far wrong, as Monsieur cooks over a charcoal grill in the restaurant itself. With a thick steak ordered blue, the exterior comes chargrilled to within an inch of... More

In a bustling pavement cafe area of Bourges this place has plenty of atmosphere. Food is substantial, well cooked and tasty albeit at the French rustic end of the scale. Look out for the cote de boeuf for 2 which is huge and served rare is hard to beat.

Stopped for lunch after members of our party disagreed about other choices.Service excellent . Food not memorable but palatable.If I was back in Bourges I would campaign more strongly to try my choice rather than return here but would not refuse to try it again.

We arrived late in Bourges and wanted to have a good dinner. We had appetizers and a good steak (entrecote au bleu d'Auvergne). As an appetizer the chef salad with bleu d'Auvergne, magret de canard fume, and the poached egg is to be recommended

Thank gbehets
