you get to sit in comfortable chairs in a sitting area, have an apperatif, some amuse bouche, and order your food. Once your food is ready they move you to your table to eat. Great food, really well done.

We chose Rive Gauche based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The dining room is lovely. The food was excellent and the service very helpful. The Tours city street ambience was not that impressive but inside the restaurant was wonderful.

In the very centre of Tours, Rive Gauche is a veritable escape from a world of fast food and menus lacking imagination ��� this is a temple to gastronomy, a place where food is of the utmost importance, where good company is a must and excellent service is par for the course. A beautifully modern spot where a slate floored terrace offers a comfortable and sunny place to enjoy summer lunches and a welcoming, warm interior surrounded by tongue in cheek artworks encourage long languorous meals and slowly sipped bottles of wine. In the kitchen tradition and following fashion is ignored in favour of experimentation, the dynamic menu is a reflection of a chef and his team set free to try new things and express their creativity.
