Excellent cuisine in Tours

While in Tours we visited Le Turon (named for the Celtic tribe of the region) and were delighted both times with wonderful three course meals. Entrees included salades and various fois gras preparations; plats we sampled included braised pork chop and steak, lamb simmered for 7 hours and "fried... read more

Traditional French and regional Food. We had dinner while staying around the corner in Tours. Great food, great service and even a sample of "fois grae". Suggest you try the Duck with pear. The French know how to cook duck. Pity we only found this restaurant on our last night in Tours.

Food is excellent, wine is delicious, service impressive. A bit expensive, but worth all the money. And they are opened during bank holidays.

Visited Le Turon on recommendation of son who is studying in Tours and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Three of us enjoyed three excellent three course meals washed down with very acceptable wines. The quality and flavour of the beef that two of us had was outstanding and the 7 hour lamb was meltingly tender. At about £100 for three... More

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.
