Having eaten at this centrally located bar/diner on several occasions, both individually and as part of a family group, I have experienced both very good tasting dishes but also quite average ones. Great tasting French onion soup, nice burgers, very average pork milanese, entrecote steaks and mussels. To summarise, eatable pub style food, reasonably priced.

New Year's Day, but the place was full and buzzing. Lots of locals. Service a bit slow but we enjoyed the food and the recommended special Christmas beer was delicious

The pub is well situated, convenient but the foot is terrible in everyway. The bread seems to be from yesterday, tagliatelle was over cooked, pizza was half baked, french frites was unable to eat ... All in all, go the for the beer and the television but don't ever think of eating there.

Restaurant was half, still the service was really slow. It took 3 hours them to serve main course and desert for six persons. Food was okay, but not worth of waiting...

I wouldn't usually set foot in a french restaurant with an english title but this place was a find. The top end formula 3 course menu was 18 euro. I had duck foie gras and smoked duck breast salad, sirloin steak and mousse au chocolat. The house wine is excellent and the staff can not help you enough even when... More

My husband and I had dinner one evening at this bistro. We had the house red wine and a carafe l'eau was brought without asking. We both had steak which was very tasty. The service was prompt and friendly and the prices reasonable. They seemed to be doing a good business but it was May 1. I would recommend this... More

My fiance and I came here due to the lack of options in Tours on a Sunday (pre-7:30pm). We were lured in by our sheer desperation for a meal (hadn't eaten since breakfast), and the signage out front that indicated they spoke English. Indoors, it's pretty dated and has an English pub kind of feel. Our waiter did not know... More
