Thoughtful presentation and execution

This is a very fine restaurant in any city, here in Sancerre is is a wonder. The progression of Entre through Plats to desert is well conceived.

Elegant ambience in a small, full restaurant with a winter view onto the darkened old square outside. Highly professional well-paced service of the many courses plus little extras and starters made an evening pass very agreeably. The 7.45 single sitting gives a feeling of an elegant dinner party. Delightful food. Realising we were British, the white wine chosen (Sancerre of... More

We were daring and had the tasting menu at La Tour. Every course was excellent including the Ris de Veau! I would never have otherwise eaten it and it was excellent. We got off to a slow start as we had to wait for about 10 minutes to get waited on and they brought out wine parings much earlier than... More

Perched at the top of the hill overlooking the valley this restaurant is beautiful. Service was impeccable and the food wonderful. Two amuses-bouches, two entrées, a main, dessert and the cheese cart proved to be delicious, satiating but not excessive. The wine list was understandedly long and an excellent opportunity to try some local wines. Unmissable.

We chose the tasting menu for this special occasion, which did not disappoint. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The accompanying wines were matched perfectly. A wonderful experience.

Matthieu and his team went about their business with efficiency and a sense of humour. We enjoyed the meal throughout and found the cooking innovative . technically excellent and delicious.Accompanying wines were well matched and... More

The food was definitely good! But unfortunately I had booked a table (for 2) on the 1st floor, where they should have a view to the wineyards. Obviously there is no view when it's dark outside. This was my mistake. My husband tried to have the table swapped to ground floor instead but unfortunately without luck. The premises upstairs are... More

This restaurant definitely deserves the Michelin star it has been awarded. The food was delicious and the service was great. The waitress was also very accommodating in explaining the menu in English. Definitely the highlight of our stay in Sancerre

We had dinner in late September here. The reputation of this restaurant is really stellar and it is no coincidence. The food was really perfect. We went for the 60 € menu which was just right. Not too much, not too little. For this price, you get 4 courses + cheeses. Great value. The food is delicate, well prepared, original... More
