Found this charming restaurant while walking around the old quarter. The menu is full of local dishes.The staff were always ready to assist in both English and French.Wines by the glass were very reasonably priced 6Euro for a beautiful Sancerre.We decided to sit inside and were able to watch the waiter carve slices of a leg of jambon cru to order (we had to order a plate and it was delicious).We ordered plate of cheese which was a trio of goats cheese with a good sized salad with a lovely dressing.The pretty urn filled with roses,comfy chairs,great wallpaper all helped make this lunch quite special.

Having an early dinner here Friday night I couldn't help but get the impression this terraced restaurant is not what it once was. The flamboyant owner was only interested in verifying I intended to EAT instead of just DRINK and was not very welcoming. The premium prices for relatively simple dishes were not warranted. I can't imagine why anyone would recommend having dinner at this tired restaurant.

Bonjour,
j'ai pris bonne note de votre critique et suis désolé que notre "politique" terrasse vous ai choqué.
Effectivement, aux heures des repas, notre établissement se transforme uniquement en restaurant....
Espérant vous accueillir très prochainement.
Bien à vous

New to Tours, we are trying out many restaurants for the first time. Visited Bac on Monday the 17th December 2012. Good to note that this restaurant bucks the trend and opens Mondays.
A warm greating from the staff. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The menu is all in French and our waiter struggled with our English when questioned on a couple of items.
This said, we got through and the food was nice.
I started with pumpkin velouté with bacon foam and rillons of pork while my wife thoroughly enjoyed her two poached eggs with smoked haddock in a cream sauce.
For mains, my wife had lamb in a filo pastry with vegatables and potatoes. I had duck breast with pureed carrots......... seriously lacked the potatoes to complete the dish.
Finished off with a dessert of profiteroles which the waiter smoothered in rich chocolate......
