A delight

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.

Well hidden in old Tours, on a small, charming square St Honoré is a delicious French cuisine restaurant, with perfectly prepared dishes and good wine-lists the chef is present in the kitchen but also coming to the guests, while his wife is running front of the house. Great regional --and beyond-- cuisine and very nice desserts. Superb find, especially if... More

Le Saint Honore might be able to seat 16 people. Benoit, the chef and proprietor, personally waited on us and explained all the food. Our innkeeper from La Maison Jules said that he is also a hunter and a fisher and grows his own vegetables. We started with a beautiful appetizer tray, with cheeses (a Parmesan lollipop) and olives and... More
