Over the years, we have been infrequent clients, usually coming only once a year (sadly !), either on our own à deux, or with friends, or with a son to celebrate a wedding anniversary (a particularly memorable and lengthy experience -- poor, patient staff...) or with grand-daughters. This year (10/2013) for my wife's birthday - without any special request or prompting, they made a small cake with candle and a "bonne anniversaire" scribed elegantly in chocolate - a friendly gesture, typical of this place..
As described by previous reviewers, La Tour has lovely views and several terraces. The staff are always pleasant and competent yet without the superiority and condescension that sometimes accompanies the more self-important and inadequately-managed "Michelin" type establishments. La Tour is not a new arrival (as suggested by a previous review) but with its owner and chef, Madame Rougier Salvat, has been serving the region since 1988, with a supportive loyal local clientèle in addition to the foreign birds of passage, such as ourselves.
This year our bill ws 144€ for lunch, one menu at 42€ for "the birthday girl" and a very reasonable 3 course "formule" at 29€ and included apéritifs, digestifs and 1½ bottles of wine (31€ and 13€ respectively). "Vaut le voyage"
