Came here in the rain based on the good review on TA. Unfortunately the food was just normal and the wine list extremely overpriced, especially for a location in a wine region. The food is good just not particularly interesting.

We were recommended by our B&B host to the restaurant. It's a cozy, nicely decorated place with peculiar Tour furnishing. The food is amazing and the chef (the owner) came out to greet us, which is really sweet.

This chef-owned restaurant is a must if you are in the Loire Valley near Tours and a "must" to book in advance too. You will have a memorable experience. An intimate little restaurant, charmingly decorated in the best Loire taste while everything about it tells you you're in for a treat. On arriving we were greeted at the door and... More

We ate more expensively in our 4 days in Tours, but this small, out of the way family restaurant set the pace. Limited menu, but very nicely presented. The vegetables were just right, and my duck (plum sauce?, I didn't write it down), was perfect. The sorbet selection for dessert seemed fruity, ? homemade?. Service was a bit slow, but... More

We were on our first stopover in France and chose this restaurant as being within an easy walk from were we were staying. Not an easy place to find and it took a couple of detours to get there. Make sure you have clear directions! Well worth the visit, not cheap but an excellent meal; mind you my partner had... More

Highly recommend for the great, original food and the charming, French atmosphere, down to the red and white checked tablecloths and the authentic wood-beamed interior. One of the best pieces of fish I've ever had...loved how they served it on top of a bed of broccoli, brussel sprouts and delicious seasonings. Daughter had the duck and thought it was very... More

Saw reviews on Tripadvisor, and thought we would give it a try - not disappointed! Really nice meal, friendly efficient service. Decor eclectic, but not overwhelming. Bit off the beaten track, but worth the detour.

This wasn't our first choice of restaurant, the first being full booked. The lady on the phone, when pressed, felt we would like Le Saint-Honore, and what a terrific recommendation! It's in a quiet little square, and looks inviting as soon as you see it. It has a lot of history, and is furnished with old kitchenware from the past,... More

The restaurant interior is definitely designed by the female part of the family. Fulltime of antique and bric a brac.The menu contains some delightful specialties.The pigeon was outstanding. Friendly service and special interest from the cook. The restaurant is somewhat difficult to find but it is worth the effort to find it
