Excellent meal

Both the entrees (terrine de tete de veau and cold egg on artichoke ) and the mains (pigeon breast and vaul-au-vent with sweetbreads and morilles) were excellent as well as the wine. Many thanks!

We wanted to treat ourselves and selected one of the best restaurants in Tours. We picked the menu and the recommended red wine. The combination was absolutely outstanding and we had a great evening at the restaurant. Since we had to wait a bit longer for the taxi we were even offered free drinks on the house. The restaurant is... More

Was here for a business dinner with a local client. This is by far the best meal that I have had in Tours area. Chose the featured entrée and main course. The setting is very nice and suitable for any special occasion.

My wife and I had dinner on July 4th at restaurant La Roche Le Roy located south of the Cher river in the St Avertin suburb of Tours, in a lovely 18th century Touraine manor in a nicely landscaped park. Chef Alain Couturier has had a Michelin star for many years and is a Maître Cuisinier de France. Being in... More

This restaurant is not just about the food, which is fabulous, but also about the breathtaking building, the atmosphere, excellent wait staff, and very good champagne & wine. This was the first time I had ventured to try fois gras and I was amazed by the taste. The souffle was also superb. Definitely a highlight of my stay in france... More

We went for dinner after being rudely dimissed from our hotel restaurant - they did not have any more tables, not even for the guests... - and we found something SO much better! The place itself is lovely, resembles a Château, the ambience is very welcoming and the staff was really polite and friendly. We had the menu carte blanche,... More

We have been eating at La Roche le Roy for more than fifteen years, although for some reason we had not visited for a long time and had wondered whether it could still be as enjoyable as we remembered. I'm very happy to say that we were not disappointed. Despite our long absence we were greeted like old friends and... More

On the second night of our trip we were taken to this jewel of a restaurant in tours which turned out to be the best as far as regional french gastronomy is concerned and regardless of its reputation the prices paid for either the surprise menu and the territorial menu was very good value for money Pretty looking country manor,...

This was our second time dining here. Once outdoors during the summer and this month inside. Both atmospheres are pleasing. The owner is a British lady who is most personable and will engage in a conversation if you so desire. The dishes and service were both most enjoyable, and our out of town guest remarked in accord.
