Let me start by saying that when looking for dinner in a new city, I commonly look for consistently high ratings (throughout multiple sites) and moderately priced restaurants. Check, check. The food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, the wine recommendation was perfect, service was great...More

This small restaurant was recommended by our nearby hotel that boasts a Michelin star restaurant (which was closed that night). That pretty much says it all in my opinion. Located in the old part of Tours it also was a great starting/ending point for wandering...More

Really enjoyed this quaint restaurant in Tours, where they have innovative cuisine and great attention to detail. Our party had the duck with black rice and carrots, the steak with mashed potatoes, and blackened scallops with cauliflower puree; all were delicious. We had a table...More

I go to Tours every summer and always go to L'Atelier Gourmand. The menu changes often so there always something new to have. This year, I especially liked the Gambas, the entrecôte and the foie gras. The Gambas were gigantic and perfectly done. The foie...More

We were near Tours and looking for a spot for dinner. Reviews seemed good. We called and were able to get a table. Sat in the lovely courtyard outside. The owner is a jokester and larger than life. The food was pretty good. The appetizers...More

Charming host who, despite being fully booked, rustled up a table for two. Good service - all the staff have a great sense of humour. Delicious creative French food - trust in the chef - tuna and snails, it works. My wife doesn’t like snails...More

We dined at L’Atelier Gourmand yesterday night and we were so glad of this lucky find. A very quiet corner away from the main touristy alleys, great service and great food. My husband had the menu a la carte and I picked two different dishes...More

Wow, we just stumbled on this place and were so very pleased. The ambience was top-notch, the staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming - most importantly they were able to communicate in English (since our French is poor this was such a boon). The menu...More
