This place is situation on a pedestrian street in the old town of Tours- Rue Colbert. This place offers a traditional menu with emphasis on regional cuisine. The wine list is very large centering around local wines . The service was very attentive and accommodating. The food was well prepared and a decent value.

Stumbled upon this place on a walk through town and am very glad we did. We ordered the main and dessert combo for around 20 euro each. The 7 hour lakb is tender and delicious and the steak with goats cheese was really tasty, accompanied by a generous amount of nice bread. Very busy and the poor waiter was doing... More

The food was very disappointing given the price - 30 euros for starter, meal and dessert. The starter was a good attempt but the items were mismatched. Crab in what appeared to be mayo with avocado and Granny Smith apples. It just didn't go. This was followed by a steak which was not well cut, was very fatty and was... More

We dinned here tonight premise of local produce being served. We were not disappointed. We had the three course menu couple with a nice bottle of wine. Great food coupled with very friendly service. You could pay a great deal more for a restaurant meal in Tours. However, this was just prefect for the price. Would recommend.

In studying Le Turon's well thought out menu featuring fresh, local products, we were inspired to choose this restaurant for dinner. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and professional. We ordered the duck filet with roasted potatoes and poached pears which was cooked to perfection and delicious. For dessert we picked their strawberry and... More

We had two great meals at this little restaurant. Reasonably priced well cooked food, sensible portions, pretty good service. Would have no hesitation recommending it for a nice meal out.

This is a pleasant restaurant, with reasonable cost for the area, but uninspired food. The quantity of food was adequate but not excessive. We found better restaurants in the same area and in the same price range. I had the rabbit, which was flavorful but a bit tough.
