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

We ordered the degustation menu with the wine pairing and lost patience after the fourth course. It didn't seem right that they served the same wine twice, as opposed to pairing a specific wine with each course. Also, the service was too slow and the meal took almost four hours. The food was good, but not exceptional, and the dessert... More

This is a Michelin 1-star restaurant with a brilliant lunch menu. Three exquisite courses with little extras at the beginning and end. Great wines by the glass, very attentive, helpful waiters. A sublime experience. Not to be missed for anyone who likes great French food.

As you would expect from any Michelin star restaurant, the food is superb. Complimented by attentive, helpful service in a wine region that is easy on the eye as it is on the palate. The real surprise though is just how reasonable the cost of such a great meal comes in at. My tip would be to try the lunch... More

After a break of some years from La Tour, we were so impressed on Saturday July 19th, that we returned for the final evening of our holiday on Wednesday July 23rd! As the second occasion was the first night of the new menus, over the two meals we were able to enjoy a selection of different dishes. Whilst the sweets... More
