Really nice little restaurant

Saw reviews on Tripadvisor, and thought we would give it a try - not disappointed! Really nice meal, friendly efficient service. Decor eclectic, but not overwhelming. Bit off the beaten track, but worth the detour.

This wasn't our first choice of restaurant, the first being full booked. The lady on the phone, when pressed, felt we would like Le Saint-Honore, and what a terrific recommendation! It's in a quiet little square, and looks inviting as soon as you see it. It has a lot of history, and is furnished with old kitchenware from the past,... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant for lunch and had a wonderful meal. The food at this restaurant was extremely well prepared and the service was very good. Given the reviews, we decided to make a reservation for lunch thus ensuring we would be able to get a table. The restaurant itself is charming and certainly complemented the... More

The restaurant interior is definitely designed by the female part of the family. Fulltime of antique and bric a brac.The menu contains some delightful specialties.The pigeon was outstanding. Friendly service and special interest from the cook. The restaurant is somewhat difficult to find but it is worth the effort to find it

A small restaurant, family run with a small but exquisitely cooked menu. The foie gras, meat loaf style, and the pigeon were stand out dishes and head and shoulder above what I've tried elsewhere in Loire. Service was impeccable, wine list reasonable. There were so many attempted walk ins that were turned away that reservations are absolutely necessary, they run... More

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 France for over 25 years and this has been the... More

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.
