Excellent food, impeccable service, soft ambience. What else could you ask for? Ah, yes: good value and a useful wine list. All set in a pretty town, even if the weather was rubbish during our stay.

We had lunch and the degustation du chef which was superb! Best meal in a week of gourmet restaurants in the Loire valley. The staff were very friendly and helpful to us as non French speakers. A wonderful experience in the lovely setting of Sancerre.

La Tour was a special experience. We went for dinner in Sancerre and chose to experience the discovery menu where the chef presents all of the courses without you choosing. Rarely have we experienced such fine, creative and artistic cuisine. Each dish was presented beautifully. Each plate was full of flavor and surprising and delicious tastes. I have dined all... More

We ate here one summer's evening in Sancerre having booked some time before. The restaurant is small (perhaps between 24/30 covers) but in a lovely, old, interesting beamed room. The tables are beautifully set. Service was good. The food was interesting and original. We had gambas, followed by lotte, beef and duck, cheese (a great cheese trolley) and dessert. A... More

A fabulous experience with Michelin star quality and service. A cold asparagus soup with a tomato sorbet was to die for.

It was as expected for a Michelin star restaurant. A nice mix of seasonal produce cooked inventively. Service was good. Lots of bread to accompany your meal. A fabulous cheese trolley, with other French cheeses as well as the local goats cheese. We had the five course degustation menu with matching wines. Only three wines as I guess there is... More

Service, wine and food are delicious. The cheese table is unlike anything I have seen. Many cheeses from all over France. You pick one or several for that course. It's amazing!
