Very nice restaurant

Two couples for a birthday lunch, up from our boat in the port at St Thibaud. We had heard about this place, generally positive reviews and the restaurant did not disappoint us. Highly recommended - well-cooked food and lovely presentation in a very agreeable atmosphere.

We wandered in here after a day's sight seeing hoping for a warm welcoming reception from staff . What we got was dirty looks from their waiting on staff that seemed to have disliked our choice of clothing for the day. We waited to be shown to a table and were completely overlooked when another couple walked in and the... More

I did the chef's menu with wine pairing twice in the same week. The menus were completely different and both were exceptional. I recommend sticking to the Sancerre only wines for the pairing.

La tour is THE posh and expensive restaurant in town. I waited to take my friend there for her birthday - it was to be a treat! While the entree and main courses were lovely - the dessert a disappointment. But of greater disappointment was the service. Maybe we hit it on an off night - I know it is... More

There is a set menu, however I am unable to eat any dairy products and they were able to accommodate me with a wonderful meal.

We had heard much about this restaurant prior to dining there. We were delighted to get reservations. However, although the downstairs is elegant and deserving of its reputation, the upstairs, where we were seated is cafeteria contemporary and entirely unsuitable for purportedly fine dining. We have eaten in French restaurants on the highway that had more atmosphere and, sad to... More

The 5 courses €42 menu at La Tour is very good value with an offering of nice flavours and imaginative cooking. There is obviously a fantastic choice of Sancerre wine and I recommend that you let the sommelier select some of the smaller producers for you, we had a deliciously smooth bottle of red reserve de Marcigoué. A very enjoyable... More
