The most wonderful food experience I’ve had in a long while. Flavour and texture combinations that you would never have dreamt of in a hundred years - and yet they work excellently, and everything is presented perfectly.
A meal that makes you want to kiss the chef!

We so enjoyed this restaurant that we returned 2 days later and were certainly not let down. The food was excellent and so was the service. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Tours. I am sure they will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had the entree and plat (31 Euro). For entree the stuffed zucchini flower was superb and the duck magnificent. I had the sea bass for plat and my wife the lamb, both brilliant. The presentation of all dishes was excellent.

If there could be a down-side, the service was a bit slow in getting the wine and the bill, but the quality of the food offset this easily.

After visiting the cinema in Tours, we chose a restaurant that was in walking distance. We went for an early dinner and were the first customers. However, the restaurant soon filled up and we were glad that we had booked a table. We chose the 36 euro menu, which gave us an entrée, main course and dessert each. After the amuse bouche, I had the raviolis de pork, and my husband had the Foie Gras. My main course was the sea bass, and my husband had the noisettes of lamb. We finished with coque meringue and the duo de chocolat respectively.

We both enjoyed our meals. The presentation was exceptionally good, especially considering the price and the food was cooked to perfection. The service we experienced was good, although we had the impression that some customers who arrived later had to wait a while.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to others, as we thoroughly enjoyed our meals there.

What we call fine dining is often the norm in a certain class of French restaurant. This is one of those. And the lunchtime menus often represent astonishing value for money. This is also one of those. All food cooked from fresh raw ingredients. Recipes, ingredients and presentation on the plate of the highest standard. This is professional master chef in action. Generous on a lunchtime menu to have a little mis en bouche before the starter; exceptional to have a little piece of cake as a mis en bouche after your dessert. Our food was faultless. A delightful lunch in a very pleasant atmosphere.
