We made a reservation over the telephone. Unfortunately this was not possible in English but I managed. Menu was also not available in English, but the hostess helped us with the translation (although she didn't really seem happy with that). The food and wine however were really nice. This restaurant is worthwhile a visit, but the atmosphere and service is... More

We tried l'Odeon ones spec as soon as it opened on a Friday evening. The manageress was a little reluctant to accommodate us as we hadn't booked, but gave us a very nice table. The food was excellent - marinated smoked salmon, capon, monkfish and similar courses, with a superb dessert of a savarin with a flambéed rum sauce. Three... More

We had lunch at the Odeon - the lunch menu (entree + main) is 15 Euro - excellent value for the price. The dishes we had were all outstanding in taste and presentation - I loved the fish. We were recommended a relatively inexpensive Loire valley white wine - which went very well with the fish. The chef also prepared... More

We had dinner, but I must say it was a bit disappointing, there was a smell entering the restaurant which was in our opinion not pleasant. We had the special menu and I ordered the recommended fish with fresh asparagus of the season, I got ONE whole asperagus!!! disappointing.

This restaurant doesn't catch the eye from the outside, but definitely worth a visit. Warm welcome. Good level of English spoken, should you need that. Set menu at 22 euros interesting and well balanced. Good value for money. Local wine recommended by maitre d'hôtel was very pleasant. Quiet and efficient service. Will certainly return when next in Tours.

Visiting several times a year Tours, it allows me to have some restaurante references but visiting again L'Odeon found out this time was not OK. To start, from the wine menu choose a wine that was not available and no equivalente (rose), in a restaurante like this one ? Second, found a hair in the plate and employee reaction like... More

This restaurant being within walking distance of our hotel was our quick choice on the evening of our arrival in town. We were greeted and seated promptly in the front window of the restaurant and immediately had two staff members helping us order drinks. Our french is not good but we bumbled through the menu and all ordered something our... More

Thought we'd try out this restaurant as it was recommended in one of our travel guides. Glad we did - not as you might expect in the old quarter but easy to find location near to the station. Chose the 3 course option - every course was beautifully presented. Lobster starter was v good, my husband's fish of the day... More
