Quality, presentation and taste excellent.

Quality of the food was excellent. The cod melted in the mouth, the best we have ever tasted. We were impressed with all the courses.

As a solo diner, I felt quite comfortable in this small dining room ( ten tables) that opened onto the square.It is a pleasure to dine in France where conversations are low key, whereas in the US, diners feel they have to laugh 10 decibels louder than necessary.The courses were excellent and all personnel were attentive. Unfortunately, a woman seated... More

A wonderful dining experience. Great service and inventive dishes with plenty additional offerings courtesy of the chef. I would definitely encourage a visit though be warned, the servings are generous, so if going all out, I would advise one to have a late breakfasts and skip lunch. The service was attentive and always on hand without being intrusive.

As always... Or even better than the last time. We let the chef pick the menu and the wine, and we loved it! The tartare with the bleu cheese "émulsion" and the rasberries?! OMG! Go there. Try it. Our favorite restaurant in Sancerre.

A group of us from Coeur de Français language school went here for a farewell dinner. We took our time savor in the presentation, creativity and taste of each course. The service was impeccable with explanations in French then English for each item. Save room for fromage and désert !

We had the 42 Euro set menu. Had a great time. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Sancerre. We had a very nice evening.

I am lucky to have eaten at many great restaurants - La Tour was amazing on a relative basis. Terrific food - amazingly creative but not gimmicky. The service was impeccable. In particular - since I was traveling solo - they had an extensive wine list of half bottles to go along with the great wine list they have. And... More

We ordered the Menu Degustation with wine pairings. The amuse of cauliflower puree, fish, peanut was delightful. Then the tuna, foie gras with carrots, artichokes, cod, sweetbreads, lamb, cheese, strawberry with patisserie creme and cheesecake.. We finished with espressos. delicious! Nice dining room where we felt very comfortable. Definitely would come here again!
