Excellent cuisine, relaxed atmosphere

This place has a deservedly high reputation, especially for its fish. I am not a fan of seafood in general, but I have now been here twice and will be back.

A pre-Christmas lunch with friends at La Chope in Tours. A large pre-booked group of 25, who belong to a bi-lingual association of French and English. For us, our first visit. But some there are regulars. After this experience so will we be. Absolutely first rate. Exceptional quality and value. We had an advance choice to make of two menus... More

On reading other reviews I think we may just have been unlucky. The starters and dessert were fine but the main course of black cod was overcooked, chewy and just unpleasant. Coupled with the very surly service this was not a good experience. This restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide but we had better (and cheaper) meals... More

After an awful day this was the perfect tonic. 55.90 euros for two. Very good main course. Michelin star standard Creme brûlée. Good wine and aperitifs. A bargain. Little wonder this place has survived over a century.

We stumbled upon this place by accident and what a find! Staffed by waiters in formal dress we were the only English speakers there. The food is outstanding. My wife's salmon and my veal were flavours to be remembered for a very long time. All this topped off with a dessert of cooked pineapple of the highest quality Highly recommended

We went to this restaurant twice as part of a Treyn holidays package tour and found the food excellent. although there was no choice. Looking at the meals that independent diners were ordering we would judge the standards to be very high.

Just had dinner here on the recommendation of our Riviera tour manager. What a wonderful choice. Fabulous fish cooked in exciting and different ways- then came the puds. My wife had the raspberry soup with pannacotta and champagne and I had a rum baba the like of which I have never had such pleasure to eat before. Great atmosphere and... More

A very clean, well staffed operation.The service was good, the food and wine was very good all at a reasonable charge. A possible gripe would be that when we returned the next day at a slightly earlier time it was closed, but I would put that down to our stupidity!
