Found this restaurant by chance near to the station in Tours. The service and food were exceptionally good, with the staff being more than friendly. Lovely décor and atmosphere, we'll be back when in Tours again!

The owner of the suites we were staying at recommended this restaurant, and it was a really pleasant experience. Definitely the best meal we had in Tours, with friendly, attentive staff and a great layout (we weren't sitting on top of anybody). Safe bet for a good and reasonably priced meal.

We selected le Theleme from previous reviews and weren't disappointed! This is a very pleasant family run restaurant in which we received a warm welcome. The food was out of this world, local high quality produce was used, the staff friendly and attentive, the decor tasteful. We would highly recommend this restaurant. We actually enjoyed it so much that we... More

Was recommended this restaurant by our hotel after a poor experience in Tours the previous evening. The restaurant is set out almost like theatre stalls which makes for nice dining areas. Wide choice of food and an excellent wine list and attentive service.

We dined here July 2014 and enjoyed every moment of it. Whilst the staff struggled with English, we all made it in the end. The food was excellent as was the wine. The staff were attentive and the owner was extremely friendly. We would go back there anytime. What more can i say?

My wife and I just had a glorious might at Le Theleme. We went for the two course formule. Duck and fish in subtle and flavoursome sauces. Excellent variety of fruit and chocolate mousses for sweets. Also complementary entrees of olives and other treats. Attentive service. Best meal so far en France.

We had a delicous € 26,- menu of three courses. The food was superbe, the service horrible! We had to ask for our drinks, for the food and the dessert, everything took lots of time.

The food is an interesting fusion of French and Asian and the presentation of the plates was great.Service was attentive with a smile. The whole meals from the beginning to the end was a wonderful experience. Don't skip the deserts! RSTMN 9/110
