Set in the central square of the old part of Tours this restaurant manages to be in a busy area yet somehow keep a discrete ambiance.

Food was extremely good, as was the service.

No negative points to note - well worth a visit

We went to this restaurant because it was highly rated on tripadviser. At first everything was great. Service was excellent and appetizers were pretty good. Then I got a lamb that I order as main dish. It was not specified what cut of meat it will be or I did not get it due to luck of French. Whatever cut it was it was uneatable. Not a meat but rather tendons and bones. I should send it back but I did not.

Chose this as the last meal of our holiday in France and we were not disappointed. Food was high quality and the staff very nice who spoke English but we happy for us to try out our French. Great location in the old town but you need to book as lots of people were turned away. Menu friendly enough for teenagers which is a plus. Would definitely visit again when in Tours.

We found this restaurant online and booked for a Sunday evening meal. We had one vegetarian in our group, who was catered for extremely well by the chef, despite no vegetarian options of the menu. The staff were extremely good and were able to speak plenty of English! The food was all delicious, including the amuse bouche, which were a lovely surprise. Its in the heart of Tours, but very unsuspecting and classy. Very highly recommended.

Restaurants on beautiful squares or piazzas often have to do very little for business but stand out front with picture menus. Nothing could be further from this in L'Embellie. While the food is fantastic and regional, it is the friendliness of the service that is exceptional. The staff were so genuine, they made me and my partner so very comfortable and relaxed. At no time were we rushed, we felt that they went to great lengths to ensure we had the time to enjoy both our food and the meal itself as a time for relaxation repose, and nourishment. Exceptional.
