'Mamie Bigoude' in Tours...we said we'd be back

After using the facade of this restaurant in our 'Taken in Touraine' feature we decided we' have to check it out - and last Wednesday  we did.

We are really glad we did...it is a very interesting establishment with some quirky room settings and fittings.

Like the balls of wool light fitting in the downstairs dining room - which incidentally has the most absurd collection of tapestries we've seen put together but somehow they seem to belong!

Not quite sure what the styling  is meant to be - there is certainly a 50's influence mixed with the quirkiness.

Upstairs you have a choice of room settings...

...like the bathroom

 ...or the bedroom

Being a Wednesday it filled up quickly with mums and children who all seemed to love the funky atmosphere - because it was busy the service was a little slow but this was made up for by the price of lunch and the surroundings.

The Humphrey Bogart (?) gallete was tasty and the little 'Pot de'Toinette' yummy!
