Our first visit to Tours saw us booked for lunch at this lovely themed restaurant by our young French friends. I could have spent all day there just looking at the bizarre decor and furniture. The food was simple but excellently cooked' my steak was perfect. The desserts were to die for. Service was extremely pleasant and quick. Two course... More

Its the coolest restaurant Ive been to in Tours. The interior is amazing (it is like a house and you can eat in every room, including a bathroom!). The service is always nice, which is not so common lately. And the food! I must warn: there is a lot of butter! :) But in a good way. I absolutely loved... More

Great concept! Such a novel idea and fun attraction for all age groups. My daughter who is studying in Tours, couldn't wait for me to eat at Mamie Bigoude where we both chose delicious tasting galettes. The restaurant was busy but the service was efficient and we were served quite promptly. Definitely worth a visit!

When you go eat at Mamie Bigoude you don't go for the food (even if the "crêpes" or french are perfectly OK) but you go for the decoration, the fun, the great kids playground... You go to have fun with your kids, eating in a bed or in a bathtub and letting them wander around Mamie B. house!

Food is straightforward burgers, crepes and gallettes - but it is delicious. Values for money is good and the decor is amazing with each area set as a different room in the house! Worth a visit if you are in Tours

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.
