Went here after struggling to find somewhere open late on a Sunday. Food was basic, 3 course menu for €25. Waiter seemed really grumpy and unfriendly. Shame this was our first experience of Tours.

4 people we order different menus, foie gras & chicken good and tasty. We order 2 kind of beef and both disaster, looks like garbage on the plate. French beef served in this restaurant its the worst option. Fried potatoes looks better in McDonalds

I use this app often, and always find the reviews very helpful. I didn't check this place out as it was a spur of the moment decision, and looks really nice; however, don't let the menu go. It's the only way you'll know what you are supposed to be eating. Both our meals were totally tasteless and truly awful, only... More

Chose this restaurant over others nearby because the setting and decor looked good. That's a good as it got! Waitress who showed us to our table was "frosty", certainly not welcoming. The waiter who took our order was at best curt; definitely not friendly or helpful. Also turned out he was inattentive as, although I ordered pork, i was served... More

It's really hard to find a restaurant if you are running late around here so after walking around we had to settle for this place. Should of gone back to the hotel and eaten there Duck was leather. Snails were from frozen at a guess. Wine was very over priced and basically Undrinkable Avoid

We had the escalope milanaise and the filet poisson, both were fine but not outstanding. Followed by the moelleux and tarte citron, again fine but not as nice as others we have had.

Had dinner here on the first night of our holiday this year. The pizzas were excellent and the set menus pretty good too - nice rillettes, OK bavette and excellent tarte aux pommes. Service was a bit hit and miss -think we had a new joiner as she seemed very inexperienced and unsure, but friendly. Not sure we would rush... More

We were in Tours on a rainy Sunday when it was packed with Harley Davidsons for the local USA event so picked this restaurant by external appearance & a very large menu written on the wall. Mistake 1 that menu is not available on a Sunday. The menu we were offered did have reasonable choices and the price was average... More

We had the set menu - the starters we wanted were 'sold out' (at 8.30!), the fish was a tiny piece of the tail and the chicken was a very skinny leg with hardly any meat. We waited about half an hour for 2 portions of ice cream and when we asked how much longer it would be we were... More

Probably the worst restaurant that I've ever been to! Waited for over 30 minutes just to get the wine we'd ordered. Food was cold and had to be sent back. Absolutely miserable and unfriendly staff. Just the worst place ever really.
