French restaurant, with the meaning of it is. For me, the French style does not create passion but it is a meal that I like. Correct preparation and preparation. My menu selection enjoyed me. Avoid to go if French cousine does not like you. Good cheese & wine selection. Pretty service, a little bit slow, when the local is ful,... More

We went for the full menu at lunch time and we were thrilled from starter to dessert. There is a large choice and you feel that everything is fresh. For those who enjoy good tea and coffee, there is a dedicated menu with many different flavors.

We have eaten at several top rated restaurants in Tours. This is clearly our favorite. Great food and good service.

Not having made a booking but eating early by French standards, at 8 pm, we were greeted warmly and offered a choice of tables. The waiter explained all the dishes clearly in English. Our main of beef tongue cooked to perfection and melting in the mouth was partnered with small pieces of fried gnocchi and delicious cabbage, which amazed us... More

We made a lunch stop at Tours en route for Clermont-Ferrand. Parking was a real problem (hint - there is free parking at the river bank by Pont Napoleon), with the result that we were about an hour late for the reservation made the previous evening on line. Although there were only two tables left, the owner (apparently)/front-of-house guy greeted... More

We had not reserved a table, but just took the chance and got a table for us and our daughter. The owner was very attentive and helped us to choose the menue, explaining the ingredients and a good combination. For our daughter a small version of one of the main courses could be arranged at a reasonable price. We had... More

We found this restaurant by accident and realized it was a gourmet find with the first two dishes. The presentation was perfect. The second dishes ,one was veal the other fish ,were perfect. The environment is lovely and service professional and helpful. The chef combines favor and taste in very unique way. This was a restaurant that makes the Tours... More

It was little difficult to get a table. But it was WORTH. We had the best meal in Tours. We had spinach with jamon and cheese / squid with quinoa as starters, Chick of beef / Fried shirimp as main dishes, chocolate bar / Rhubarb for dessert. White wine they recommended was great as well. Everything was perfect. It's also... More

We just came across this restaurant while walking around the area looking for a place to have our dinner, since they have a tripadivor certificate of excellence we then give it a try. We were there 18:30, (seems to be still close) we ask if its already open, and was advised not until 19:00 but they can reserve a table... More
