“Amazing this place exists in San Salvador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

I dined at La Tour Bistro based on TripAdvisor ranking -- and was not disappointed. Restaurant was a little difficult to find (near American School, on 2nd floor of modern but rather antiseptic strip mall), but once inside I was very happy with my choice. The owner, Francisco, is a Salvadoran who trained and worked in France for a number of years before returning home. Restaurant uses a chalkboard menu to accommodate Francisco's choices based on what he finds and likes at the markets each day. I was very happy w food quality, presentation and generous portion sizes. Only quibble was the chilling of red wine, and offer to put ice cubes in my cognac, but I understand this is how the locals prefer to drink in a hot climate.

“Exceeds expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

La Tour Bistró is truly a little piece of France in El Salvador. La Tour may look unassuming from the outside... But inside every dish is full of flavour. The staff was genuinely friendly and the chef greeted each table personally. They made us feel like a guest at their home rather than customers in a restaurant. It has been one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant in El Salvador, and I'm definitely visiting again.

“Outstanding Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

The food is extremely good and the prices even better. Oh party was quite large and we all were very satisfied by the quality, service and value. The owners should invest a little more on decor but this is outweighed by Flavor. Keep it consistent and no doubt this eatery will be among the best in San Salvador.
