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

This restaurant is a real find. Beautifully prepared food with interesting twists. The staff are charming. We are outside and enjoyed a relaxed meal. Will definitely go there again.

Great food. Good wines. Gentle care. We were there in July. And we love it. I preferred angus beef, which was tasty and juicy. My wife opted for magret du canard, which was good. Tours is a beautiful and welcoming city, as this restaurant.

The immediate surroundings of the bar are not the best (it's the Halles, with some construction works around) but the restaurant itself is great, with a warm bistro feeling with the big red lamps. Food was lovely and modern and with big portions. However, no menu and no wine by the glass as far as I remember. Altogether a great... More

I felt that the chicken was average but my gf really liked the pigeon meat. my chicken was really tender but I felt that the sauce was an atypical sauce. the pigeon meat was really flavorful bc the sauce is amazing. The dessert call paristour is really good - reAlly good and decadent. Ps I cannot say for sure but... More

Visited La Maison des Halles with a work colleague and had the most wonderful meal. We ordered a single cold meat platter entrée which proved to be the better of the two of us. Main courses are filling and great value. Great local cuisine, with great attentive service pitched just right - not too obsequious but there when needed. I... More
