Wonderful experience

Really enjoyed dining at this restaurant, if you are anywhere near tours go out of your way to find it. Not the best location but the food and service are superb. Very generous with food and sevice, could not fault anything and the Cost is very reasonable for the quality.

It was i thought pricey but we stuck to the set menu which was good value really. and worth it. Wine was by the glass, half bottle or... More

A restaurant featuring hollow Greek columns in the middle of an industrial estate was a very odd first impression. I was tempted to smile assuming some irony, but no, the very pretentious service made me realise humour was off the menu. But the food was absolutely lovely, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Probably the best meal we have had in... More

I went for a dinner to a local friend, and I asked him to show me some real good, not touristic place. He was thinking a bit, and we finally landed here. The place was nearly empty (Tuesday), so maybe because of this, but the staff really cared about us. We ate a menu with foie gras (big portion), steak... More

I have not been to L'arche for many years but we went the opening night (purely by chance) where we were welcomed by Ludovic and Isabelle. This restaurant has always been excellent value, fantastic food and incomparable service. Reading the reviews shows that this has not changed over the years. For British travellers, if you stay at Tours Nord in... More
