A gem, exquisite food and presentation!

Best restaurant experience I've ever had with my high school groups. The duck was cooked to perfection, impeccable presentation of each of the 5 dishes, a dream come true for a French teacher to have such a beautifully, classy, French meal served to students and relatives. I've been traveling to... read more

Very small, and with a loyal local following, Le Saint Honore prepares exquisite food, and the service is extremely cordial.

Well hidden in one of the smaller streets of Tours, but worth going a little off the beaten track! Pleasant welcome, good menu, and wine choices with good service. Maybe just a little on the pricey side for this level restaurant, nonetheless worth a visit.

We got a recommendation for this place from Alex at Maison Jules Hotel and so happy we took it! It is small place run by a husband - wife team. The food is authentic French and my husband and I had a great meal. We both selected the menu of the day and were not dissapointed. The chef made a... More

Found this place as a result of a recommendation from the owner of our hotel. Another Tour gem. Rustic decor in an old boulangerie. The pain perdu desert is delicious and lamb cops the best i have ever tasted.

We dined there in October, 2014 on the recommendation of Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is tucked away in a quiet corner of the neighborhood behind the Cathédral St. Gatien. I lived in this town as a student but did not know of this area. Our food and service were both excellent. Unusual choices and wonderful presentation.... More

After finding this place on TA, I had reasonable expectations. After walking into the restaurant, I had high expectations - the setting was very homely yet refined with a clear passion for wine on display. I got excited. However - the service left us feeling a bit cold and unwelcome. Perhaps it was the language barrier (our French is poor... More

My husband and I asked the hotel to make a reservation for us a few days prior. It was a Friday night and quickly filled up with, what seemed like, mainly locals. Cosy restaurant with a warm ambience. One of my favourite meals in France - included an amazing bread and butter pudding dessert! Pretty good value too.
