My family and I had a delightful experience at this restaurant. The staff were welcoming, informative and friendly despite our limited grasp of the French language (they offered an English menu which was a nice surprise). The local produce used was of the highest quality and provided us with a real taste of regional French cuisine along with sophisticated service... More

Our tour guide, who was so convivial I asked him to recommend a good restaurant, suggested La Maison des Halles. Many of the other restaurants were very touristy and this felt more like where locals go for a special night out. The food was very meat heavy, but I was able to find delicious vegetarian dishes. The desert was incredible.... More

Tried to book several times on the phone,no answer, so turned up at 19.00 hrs to be told " fully booked" so ate a few doors down. We were quite surprised to see the" fully booked" was a table of two and no more until 20.30 when another four were seated... strange behaviour!

A small restaurant from the outside - great taste served inside! The waiter are very friendly and helpful. All dishes look great and taste was just perfect. As a chocolate lover I have to confess that the big chocolate variation at the end was just overwhelming and I did not manage to finish it. Guess I have to come again... More

We ate here for an early dinner twice this last week. It was recommended by our hotel, the Art Hotel. The staff was really nice. We speak hardly any French and their English was minimal. Made absolutely no difference. We enjoyed veal and tastey steaks. The salads were mixed lettuce/greens with a mustard vinegerette. Just perfect. They brought to the... More

If you want a nice meal with traditional produces in an informal atmosphere, this is the place. The food was beautifully prepared, really nicely presented and tasty. The service is excellent and discreet and the atmosphere shows that it is a place favoured by locals. Thank you so much for this nice meal.

Great atmosphere, good service, wonderful charcuterie platter, steaks and poulet supreme all excellent! Across from the Halles going here is a no-brainer.

This restaurant is located on a street with several other restaurants that come highly recommended. The dining along this street is a bit more of an experience than in the old part of Tours. The street is just beside the Les Halles shopping centre. Traffic can be a bit loud along the street but don't let that stop you from... More
