As I only went to one good restaurant on my 3 day stay in Tours,I don't understand why this so very good restaurant is only 13th.The décor is enchanting , food delicious, if a little bit greasy and that is why I only give it 4,5 stars .The wine list is very good.

We have been here on several occasions, both as a family to the bistro or for Easter lunch, and as a couple for a simple lunch or a grand anniversary lunch. We have not been disappointed yet!
We particularly like the choice of local wines, which the waiters will happily recommend and which have surprised us once or twice (sweet Vouvray with the meal, cauliflower soup followed by roast pork and chocolate cake, a bistro meal) and the prices are humane. (18 Euros in the bistro for a bottle of sparkling Vouvray, for eg) We shall keep on coming back.and recommend it wholeheartedly.

We went for the fixe prix dinner menu and it was amazing value. There were eight courses including an amuse bouche, cheese selection and petit fours. Every dish was memorable, since their famous soufflé was not offered as one of the desserts we asked if we could substitute it and they were happy to oblige.

The wine list was excellent and not at all overpriced. There was a good range starting with at very reasonable prices.

The decor was very warm and elegant and the staff were attentive and unobtrusive. The only downside was that their were only 4 tables of 2 in the whole restaurant on a Saturday night, so it did lack a little atmosphere.

Tucked away in a less than salubrious part of Tours (which is, itself, not always the first place one would choose for a weekend break), this gem is a real find, assuming you have the help of a local taxi driver. The terrace was the ideal place for aperitifs, hidden behind a fence one could have been anywhere.
The staff were more than attentive, the food was worthy of one * (at least) and the wine list was v. interesting and unlikely to set the bank-manager's pulse racing.
The lamb was pink-perfect, the stuffed pepper exquisite and souffle was lighter than a feather (I really did have TWO)
Book it, Dan-o. Michelin One
