We were on a 3 day visit to Tours, my husband and I and 2 friends, we called on spec at this restaurant which accepts diners until 9pm and the very pleasant joint lady owner showed us to a table. We enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal for 17 euros each which we thought was excellent value. If you go try the coq au vin which was something else, the rest looked good as well. This was a Sunday, day 2 of our break and the only downside was that we couldn't go the next day as the restaurants is closed on Mondays.

Last year my wife & I spent 5 weeks eating our way round Europe, as you do when holidaying. With out doubt Le Vieux Comptoir was our best experience. A study in efficiency Sandrine runs the restaurant & Bar whilst Yann runs the kitchen, no other help for a 30+ seat restaurant... how do they do that?
We arrived 30mins before opening time and was asked to come back, glad we did.
The food was excellent, we ate there every night of out Tours stay. Try the scallops, you won't be disappointed.
The atmosphere was perfect for us, not too much noise, just that nice buzz of diners enjoying themselves.
Everything was spotlessly clean, as it should be.
Price was reasonable ~16Euro for a main course.
Sandrine has some difficulty with English, our French is nonexistent, but we were able to work through it.
Just about as good as it gets.

We found this restaurant by chance as we were a group of 4 staying on the same street (Hotel L'adresse, and would recommend!). One of the group had incurred a bad foot sprain and was confined to her room the evening of the day it occured, so the rest of us decided to eat nearby. Firstly, the food and service was excellent and what great value !!, secondly, when we enquired about getting something small to take to our friend (holed up and hungry !) in the adjacent hotel, we were most impressed when they offered to arrange a takeaway dinner for her. We were so impressed from every perspective that we returned again (friend in tow with the aid of crutches !) the following night and enjoyed another lovely meal. It will be on our list for sure when we return to Tours !!
