We're long-term Tours visitors, with a house nearby, but thought Tours a desert for good restaurants until this week. Recommended by L'Univers, La Deuvaliere was simply great. Nothing more to say, but 'go there'.

Rustic chic restaurant off Place Plumerai. Seated us even though we had no reservation. Entree of ravioles with goat cheese and artichokes was sublime. The marbled steak was superb as was the margaret de canard. Dessert was excellent and topped off a superb meal. Warmly recommended.

Charming staff, working hard to please. Very good food. Well run and a pleasure to visit. A good selection of local wines, sensibly priced. Well located in the centre of vieux tours. All in all an enjoyable experience to be recommended.

This is a gem. Tucked down a back street in the historic quarter, itself well worth a visit, this restaurant offers a great experience- beautifully prepared food, good service and a very reasonable price. The wine list compliments the food - and the quality and flavours of the dishes are outstanding. Highly recommended!

A husband and wife team own and run this restaurant with a very bijou kitchen. The glass door into this very small kitchen shows that it runs smoothly and amazingly produces wonderful food. The daily blackboard prix fixe menu can be combined with a la carte dishes - all completely flexible and up to the customer. A real treat. The... More

Welcoming restaurant, extremely helpful staff, amazing food, great friendly chef who came out to us to discuss the menu and not crazy expensive. 5* experience, just loved this restaurant. We were a party of 4 and we all had different meals, sharing here and there and we loved all of it. Love the city of Tours and when we return... More

We put La Deuvalière on our short list after reading other Trip Advisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The staff were absolutely brilliant, and during a very busy service allowed us the time to stumble through the menu and order in our very broken French. They did offer English menus but when we said non, merci, they were more than... More

We ate here based on other TA reviews. A booking is essential. Fabulous food at a reasonable price. Located in the old town it doesn't look much from the out side. Excellent selection on the set course menu.

Booked a table on the web 3 weeks prior and confirmed it a night prior. When we arrived, we're swiftly led to our nice table by the window by a pleasant, all-smiling lady who spoke good English. She politely asked if we preferred the English menu which we said 'yes' instantly. Then we're given sufficient time to study the menu... More

We stopped in Tours overnight on our way home from a couple of excellent weeks near St Emilion and booked in at La Deuvaliere based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We were not dissapointed. A number of people have commented on the quality of the food and it was indeed probably the best meal we had on our holiday. In... More
