“Good food in a smart looking bistro”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Booked this by e mail for a special birthday meal explaining that it was a surprise and was a little disappointed. The food was good and the wine menu was good value.
The service was average, we waited so long for our cognac that we left. It would have been a nice touch if someone had said a simple happy birthday!

“Excellent Cafe, good balance between decor / service / menu”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

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.

“Excellent bistro and good value”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

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.
