Mamie Bigoude is worth a visit if only to admire the decor. Each room follows a different theme - a bedroom, a bathroom, a garden, etc. The crêpes are excellent and varied - although not particularly traditional, the servers friendly, and the price reasonable. Take the kids here!

Nice atmosphere and decor and friendly staff. Service wasn't fast but not too slow either. Food was ok with vast use of buckwheat in peculiar (to me at least) recipes. A bit pricey for a chain restaurant but so are a lot of places in tours.

This isn't just about the eating experience - which was good, not exceptional but good, it's the whole experience... from the quirky, original decor, the little detail in every room of this 50's house to Romain the children's entertainer who kindly, gently, encouraged our timid daughter to join the treasure hunt. Then there was, our lovely waitress (the bubbly, pretty... More

This restaurant is really quirky and fun. The design is so creative and inventive.. Even the menu covers made me laugh! The staff are very friendly and helpful. And most importantly.. The food is great too.

Good Restaurant with freaky entire design. We stumbled upon it by accident as it is pretty close to the basilica. The galette and the cider were great and the design just amazing. Every dining room was designed as a 'typical' room within a house, so one could dine in the bathroom, bed room, kitchen etc. :D just great.

Looking for a creperie in Tours we found this great place in a small side street. Quite unassuming from the outside, but something else inside. Great menu, galettes, crepes, fabulous burgers, salads etc. Very family friendly. We had not reserved and they were packed (on a Monday evening), but managed to accommodate us. The staff are friendly, attentive and exceptionally... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by every French person I know. The place is very nice, funky and unexpected. Great for pictures and a good story back home. I had the chicken skewers, they were average. The caramel crepe was delicious though (They are known for their crepes and galettes). Service was terrible however. Waiter was rude and the food...

The restaurant serves galettes and crepes (as well as quite a few other menu options). The food is good - the decor is quite different from other restaurants - colorful, playful and eclectic.

We ended up coming here three times, because the food was tasty and the people were so nice. Then there's the decor. You walk in and the atmosphere is obvious. Then you realise each room is, well, a different room! We first ate in the bathroom, then the living room, and finally the kitchen. I decided here that I wasn't... More

This place was highly recommended, so my expectations were high. The moment you come in, you'll see the detail and care in this place. It was clean and our waitress was very nice. I won't spoil it for you, you should at least make a stop, eat some crêpes and enjoy the place! I wouldn't recommend the burgers because this... More
