Description: Sous la houlette d'Hervé Lussault et de son chef de cuisine François Rieant, on retrouve un bistrot de quartier, fidèle à ses traditions d'antan. Ce que les Tourangeaux appellent toujours « Le Bistrot de Barrier », propose tous les jours une carte simple et directe. Avec un choix vaste dans les menus et une cave ligérienne digne de la maison, le Bistrot de la Tranchée ne tardera pas à réveiller vos papilles.

This is the sister cafe to the Michelin starred restaurant Charles Barrier. Overall, I enjoy this cafe much more then the Michelin restaurant as the quality of food and service is a much greater value. The menu is traditional but inventive and for the value / quality balance it is hard to beat in the Tours area. The cafe strikes a good balance between decor / service / menu with professional waitstaff. Wine list is quite good, and this is a local favorite for my wife and I when we have the chance. Parking is available immediately behind the restaurant and it is best to make reservations as the cafe is well known to the locals and frequently very busy.

This is the sister restaurant of Barrier's Michelin starred restaurant and it may be a bistro but the food is a cut above the standard bistro fare.

The set menus are excellent value and very tasty and every time we have been it has been full.
