I’m not sure if this is a chain restaurant but if it is, it’s a very good one. The staff are obviously very well trained. Very friendly and efficient. We both had a burger and it was very tasty. Lovely chips with it not the skinny fries. My husband had the cafe gourmand and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a crunchy, toffee ice cream dessert and it was yummy.

We went to this restaurant at it was a "partner" restaurant of the hotel where we were staying that night so we were entitled to a discount. The food was pretty good. We both started with a salad from the salad bar, fresh prawns, pates, potato salad , rice salad, hard boiled eggs etc. and if you wanted to you could go back for second helpings - although it was very good we didn't as we wanted to have space for the main course. I had the ribs with chips whilst my friend had the burger and chips. Both were very good. The ribs were moist and fell off the bone whilst the burger was perfectly cooked medium as he had asked. We had a couple of beers but after the large main course and the salad bar we skipped on dessert. The service was very good throughout and the food was just right after a long day

Stayed for one night in a hotel near this restaurant and came across it when walking around looking for somewhere to eat.
Very good value and well-cooked food, recognising this is a chain. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
First time that I have come across this chain and would be happy to use them again.

The restaurant is close to a number of hotels in the North of Tours, not far from an autoroute exit, which makes it an ideal watering hole.
Laid out in the Poivre Rouge Style, there is plenty of parking. The greeting was warm and helpful, although the tables a little tight.
We decided to have the buffet and a main, and no sweet.
The buffet has a good selection on offer, but I was unlucky to follow two French artisans who conjointly took all of the prawns, so much so that they could barely keep them on the plate. Normally the staff would replenish dishes that were empty, but it took several attempts to persuade them to replenish the prawns. Perhaps this sounds a little mean, but if you choose a buffet by what you see on entry into a restaurant, you expect to have that choice when you dine.
That said the buffet was good as was the main dish, steak cooked exactly as ordered, with a choice of vegetables.
This is not gourmet dinning, but just what the doctor ordered after a long drive from the channel ports.
Oh one tip, you get a discount if you mention you are staying at one of the local hotels

A chain restaurant but excellent service at a reasonable price. set menus with a very mouth watering and varied salad bar. The main dishes came with very light and tasty chips. Not large portions but good quality meat and duck. The wine was also available in small bottles and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful
