    They did not offer any butter even we asked for it. They also had the menu in the card which they only offer for lunch! Service was bad!!!!!

    This is a wonderful restaurant featuring fine French cuisine at its very best. We enjoyed every bite from start to finish. There is a lot of skill and passion in the kitchen. Excellent and flawless service as well. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    Amazing food. Very refined and creative. The service was attentive and the wine list is very extensive. The veal with mushroom sauce was tender and had amazing flavor. The blueberry soufflé was light and delicious.

    Best Restaraunt in Tours, we had the tasting menu. The sommelier’s wine choice was first class and knowledgable . We look forward to going again

    Went with high expectation left with disappointment. Food was presented without setting cutlery first more than once. Was shocked to find out that the soufflé had its base pre done and not done Ala minute like what you would expect from a gastronomique restaurant. Even cafes in the Asia pacific do it from scratch. We also served our wine by ourselves. Had much better experience at just normal bistros and cafes in Tours.

    This was high class service, food and wine all the way. The welcome is warm and efficient. The room is elegant, comfortable and spacious. We had the slightly more expensive “Inspiration du Moment” menu and two paired wines after a glass of excellent brüt champagne. Each dish was beautifully presented and very tasty as were the amuses bouchées.the wines were paired with each dish so were different for each person and all were expertly chosen. Our lucky last night last minute choice turned out to be the best of the whole vacation. This restaurant is a must for any repeat visit to Tours.

    The lobster menu was very good...with some up and downs but with an extraordinary finish. Nevertheless, the best part is the service. Very young, kind, classy and helpful personnel! Congratulations
