I arrived in Tours, checked in to my hotel & sought a nearby dinner spot. This place was not overly crowded & patrons included families w/ children so I figured I would give it a try. I was promptly & warmly welcomed at 8:00 pm in a Saturday evening. There was little English spoken but sufficient for the evening. They... More

This place was one of only a few open on a Sunday evening. We had spent the day touring the chateaux so were a little late but we were greeted warmly by the staff. Not everything was available (due to the lateness of the hour) but what we did have was well-cooked, professionally served and we enjoyed a nice meal... More

Due to a late train I was at Tours Station for a couple of hours in the early evening so looked for a nearby place to eat .This brasserie/ pub fitted the bill nicely . A large glass of wine ( or Two) and a goat cheese salad were just what I needed after a hectic day . Unfortunately a... More

It was raining so we wanted a restaurant adjacent to Le Grand Hotel. Le Congres, a traditional brasserie, is at the end of the block so in we went. It was busy: we were given a choice of table and sat by a window onto Boulevard Heurteloup. Orders taken, drinks and food appeared pretty quickly given how busy the restaurant... More

It was pleasant to find, in the maitre d', the manager of a restaurant I knew well twenty years ago. Le Congres is a busy, bustling place which profits from its location between the station and the Mairie and Espace Vinci. Nothing was too much trouble for a big party who hadn't booked, and although it meant I had to... More

I was staying near the train station and wanted an early (7:00 p.m.) and informal dinner, and this place seemed right. It had a "formule" fixed-price option which featured some local specialties. The waiter was initially friendly, but he got lost somewhere between the starter and the main course, with me staring at an empty plate for about 15 minutes.... More

Had lunch here upon arrival; one block from the gare. Staff were very attentive and accommodating. Menu selections were limited, food quality was OK. Value for cost was below average.

This busy brasserie was full of french people at lunch time, across the street from the convetion center in Tours and near the beautifully restored 1890s train station. The latter is worth a visit for Anglophones who need to see transportation that WORKS. The food is standard fare, well prepared, and service was standard and impersonal and busy(which is not...
