Arrived without out a booking and with a dog but were welcomed in. Very friendly and efficient staff. Tiny kitchen I think but great food comes out of it. Three courses for two people plus a local bottle of wine came to around just under €100 which was fine with us. Some of the dishes (e.g. Cep and potato gratin)... More

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.

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

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
