The restaurant is in a typical old building of the old Tours. The cuisine is creative and tasty. People is very nice and the service is less formal (or more friendly) than in other gastronomic restaurants in France. The prices are reasonable. It is better to make a reservation, specially for diner.

Excellent restaurant with a much younger and more enthusiastic staff than most of the other restaurants in the Old Town. You will need to book

We had lunch at this unpretentious restaurant, hidden in the alley. We tried both main course available - veal and cod, both were so excellent, deserving of fine dining quality, even in terms of the presentation. The price is also very reasonable, so far, this is our best meal in our 5 days of Paris/Amboise/Tours trip!!

This restaurant is owned and managed by a young couple. The cuisine is excellent and the price are very reasonable. An excellent value. Everything is made on order in the small kitchen in the heart of the restaurant. Very good local wine and marvelous cheeses.

Our party of seven non-French speaking Australians were booked into La Deuvaliere at quite short notice on the recommendation of our hotel reception staff. Simply said, we all had one of the most DIVINE dinners we have ever tasted. Our 'food critic' teenage son followed up the Quail salad with two main servings of the Beef served two ways, (I... More

This place is just fantastic. Super-friendly staff - we muddled along with a combination of dodgy English and French generally, although one of the ladies speaks pretty decent English and joined the fray later on in the evening. This helped greatly even though my French isn't that bad. They also have one menu in English, which is really useful when... More

This was a good place but expensive for dinner. Would love to try it for lunch. It was very different - food very gourmet with different ingredients- very popular with local folks.

Living in Tours for 20 years I am very selective. This restaurant is our favourite in Tours with regard to innovative cuisine, quality of ingredients, service, ambience and reasonable price for excellent quality. This month, once again the chef and his team excelled. Excellent cuisine, new tastes and good service. All for less than €45 a head with good wine.... More

The old city in Tours is loaded with restaurants concentrated around the 2 charming squares, Place de Grand Marché and Place Plumereau, all of the them with outdoor tables. But we went for the gastronomique experience and consulted, as always, Tripadvisor on beforehand. So we headed down an alley near the last mentioned square to this small indoor restaurant and...

Not realising that this was a very highly rated restaurant we didn't book. As we were very early they managed to find room for us when we walked in at 7 pm. We were told we could only stay until 9.30 which wasn't a problem at all. The food was divine. The service and the loos were the best I... More
