Description: Since nearly one century, the restaurant La Gerbe d'Or is a place of familiar appointment for lots of Lochois. The "Tuffeau" breathes the perfumes of the seasons, the large fireplace-dreams of the coloured scents of the aromas, with sweet and savoury spices, and the porch is curved to pay homage to this place where cooking becomes gastronomy.

It is sometimes hard to find a good balance in an overly-touristy town, but we found our experience here was a good one. Service was very good, and the food was very good though not exceptional. Certainly worth a stop, especially if you are looking for English spoken.

The food was excellent - however the service looked like the waiters were all new or not organized, maybe because we went early in the season.

This restaurant is in the fascinating old town of Loches. We had the "plat du jour" which was excellent value at 12.50 euros for 3 courses. It was a cold night but the welcome and ambience was very warm.

Good food, service was a bit slow though? We dined on the terrace as the weather was fine. It was nice and peaceful, no disturbing traffic noise. Would go again.

It was a rainy Saturday Night in October. Construction on the street outside almost hid the doorway but the warmth of the dining rooms and the welcome of the staff pushed memories of the rain away. There were many families, couples, and groups enjoying the very reasonably priced menus. We shared all the courses, and came away quite satisfied. The wines by the glass were fine, and reasonably priced. (One of us does not drink.) The hosts at our B&B did well by us with this recommendation.
