Walked in, got the last table available. Service was excellent and friendly. Food and wine were very good, 66 Euros total for 2. Definitely recommended.

“Good choice”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

It was very difficult to choose where to eat. There are SO many restaurants in the old part of town, but we chose this based on other reviews.
There was only one server, but the service was was good and very helpful. All of our meals were excellent from appetizer to dessert. The server helped us with pairing local wines to the courses, and they were very good

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

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.

“Our favourite restaurant in France”
Reviewed February 20, 2011

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.
