Excellent Meal in Tours

Great local food at reasonable prices. I had the poached egg appetizer. Delicious. Hubby had the 7 hr cooked lamb and kids had steak. Everything was excellent. We really enjoyed our meal!

After arriving in Tours, we asked the proprietor of our B&B for a dinner recommendation. Without hesitation, he suggested this restaurant. It was an easy walk for us, as it is located in the heart of the city, or at least very close to it! We arrived about 9:00 p.m. on a Sunday night and the place was packed! As... More

We stopped in for lunch and by the time we left we were wishing we did not have plans for dinner. Traditional French restaurant with seasonal selections from the local area. Wonderful lamb with pommes frites. Great local white wine. Reasonable price for what we received. Highly recommend.

A group of 10 of us, celebrating our student days in Tours, went to this restaurant. Wow! In the 5 days in Tours, this was our best meal--way better than some of the fancy (and pricey) restaurants we went to. Surprisingly, there was only one other table occupied---have no idea why it wasn't jammed. I had the 7 hr cooked... More

Recommended to us by our hotel staff and we were not disappointed. Chose from the set menu which was less than 30 euros for 4 courses, all of which were fantastic.

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' prawns (which were really sautéed whole prawns with heads and shells...

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.
