We had lunch in this wonderful restaurant. We arrived without a reservation, they were very busy, but they seated us. We had a leisurely 2-hour lunch with every course being excellent. We are returning to France in September and shall make a detour to Brouges to dine here again.

Therer are a good number of excellent restaurants in Bourges, and this one is not just one of the best that we used in our 2 days there, but the best in our two week holiday in Brittany, Dordogne, and Gard as well where we also had consistently good meals, so this restaurant stands out well above the rest.

The owner of our B&B booked this restaurant for us and we were very pleased with is recommendation. It took us about 30 minutes to walk to it, but it was well worth it. We both had the Gourmet Menu for 32 euros and enjoyed our meals. The portions were generous given the number of courses we were eating and... More

We enjoyed the five course Gourmet Menu for dinner. Excellent value with well prepared dishes. Nice wine list at proper prices. Extra touches from the amuse-bouche to the unexpected treats with your coffee gives this restaurant more style points than almost all others. Service was very attentive and pleasant, dealing with our limited French without issue. A great little place... More

We were not expecting much, having not consulted Tripadvisor beforehand and living life at full risk - but while we had a pleasant evening and good food, I found it was not as good as one would expect from the surroundings and all the chichi. So we were slightly disappointed and slightly underwhelmed - as well as slightly surprised by... More

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel owner. We had the fixed price Gourmet Menu which consisted of three courses, cheese and dessert. The 23 Euro bottle of Sancerre Rose' was recommended and paired well with our courses. Although we showed up with no reservation at opening time, we were promptly seated and treated as if we were long time... More

Dinner on Sat. night was not hurried but the service was prompt when needed. Entre was gazpacho centered by smoked salmon mousse covered with smoked ham. Not your usual gazpacho but very tasty. Charolais beef was perfectly prepared (mine was rare, wife's medium rare and there was a clear difference). Rest of the plat was good mixture of flavors and... More

(If it isn't I want to find it). Turned up at 7.30 on spec and got a table- on a midweek evening- and were lucky; the place soon had every table full. A lovely top menu; well priced; wine good but possibly a little expensive for France; excellent service and a thoroughly nice evening even down to the quiet background... More

Well, there we were in Bourges trying to find a decent restaurant on a Monday night, which, based on previous experience, can be a bit of a challenge. It proved to be so again. We tried a couple of the best rated restaurant on the Trip Advisor website but both were closed while a few others we passed did not... More
