Proper old-fashioned French family restaurant

This restaurant is next to Les Halles, close to the old quarter of Tours, and sources its ingredients from there. We visited on a Tuesday night in early January, so it wasn't all that busy but there were clearly some regulars at the other tables. This is not the sort of place to come to if you like... read more

This was an evening meal with 2 friends. We had the 24Euro set menu which was great. All of us were really pleased with the quality of food and the staff were really friendly. Add some drinks and it was about 36Euro each. Overall a really good choice.

We went to the restaurant on a day trip as part of a two week holiday in the region. The owner and his staff were simply lovely. The starter of ravioli with smoked salmon was sensational. A lovely traditional French restaurant with a warm welcome.

I went looking for restaurants in vieux Tours was somehwhat underwhelmed by some I saw right in at the centre so went back to look at a few round les Halles and finally settled on this one. It has all the dishes I like and there were several obviously local people there. Good choice. It's not adventurous but it is... More

One of the best meals I have had in ages. Tender, tasty, local white asparagus(was there in full season in May), a succulent blanquette de veau like one's grandmother made. Simple but perfectly prepared food. The service was utterly charming and efficient. The restaurant was full, and full of French locals, a good sign as soon as we walked in,... More

Was able to book a table on a busy Saturday night. The amuse bouche of sausage and potatoes was a great harbinger of things to come. Ravioles with canard were superb, as was the following maigrait de canard. The wine list was more than adequate and we had a delicious Loire vin rouge. Desert was equally fine. Everyone was friendly... More

Very friendly place with the most wonderful local food. Amuse-Bouches with the aperitif, then excellent meat dishes and very french, very traditional and yummy choices. If you have a birthday they do the most spectacular indoor fireworks!

In Tours for a business lunch, it would be hard to beat Les Saveurs for traditional food, well prepared, at a very fair price. The restaurant benefits from being located just across from the excellent food market (Les Halles), from where it accesses most of its produce. The menu changes daily, depending on what's in season: for example asparagus, salad... More

Tours is a lovely city and there is no shortage of restaurants. Just our luck to find a good one acros the road from the covered market. Th food was fresh and very well prepared.
