The break for lunch at La Roche le Roy was a magnific culinary experience in Touraine. We choosed the "surprise menu" according to the waiter advice. The only thing we knew from the beginning was the Rose wine from Chinon, an excellent one... I shall not give details on the five dishes plus two... read more

Worth the visit. Had the menu of the day (35euro), really nice food. Staff very friendly. We have 2 babies, they gave us upstairs, so we have huge space of our own, and no need to worry about disturbing other people.

Dined here with a group. Owners/staff were incredibly welcoming and gracious. Meal was amazing and special attention was paid to the strict dietary restrictions of some members of our group. Highly recommend you visit if you're in the area.

First of all there is the moment when you see it in the evening upon your arrival, picture perfect. Then there is the warm and friendly welcome that continues through the evening. The service is professional, not pretentious, but as personal and personable as you would like. The food was wonderful, not the best of our trip, but very, very... More

There are not many restaurants I would go back to but this is definately one of them. Impeccable service, devine food and surprisingly very relaxed atmosphere, not stuffy at all. Would suit a special occasion or a great stop for lunch (3 course lunch = 36 euros but you get canapes, an amuse bouche and petit four as well!). Highly... More

We have been driving through France for nearly a month, many Michelin starred restaurants, and this was at the top amongst them. Do not miss it during your time in the Loire. The most pleasant, welcoming service we have had anywhere, particularly by Jeremy, the sommelier/table attendant. A beautiful, formal setting, accented by highly colorful, whimsical, contemporary paintings. The lunch... More

My partner brought me here for our 10th anniversary and the whole atmosphere as well as the food was like nothing I'd experience before! I have rated this in the mid range price section as the meal was around 80€ per person. However, watch out for the wine prices, they will double your bill, although well worth it!

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.
