My husband and I were traveling with a business group (but for pleasure) staying at nearby Chateau D'artigny. The group was dispersed over several restaurants in Tours for the evening. Three couples made reservations at Les Linottes at the recommendation of one of the travel staff associated with our trip. En route, we "enjoyed" a sudden downpour and arrived at the restaurant fairly wet and quite hungry. Once seated, we were charmed by the cheerful warmth of the very cozy dining room. There was a lovely breeze as the front door was open and we enjoyed watching the comings and goings of a very busy downtown on a Friday evening. I require a gluten free menu and had a blurb about celiac/gf foods printed in French, which I gave to the hostess. She graciously explained to me what I could choose from the menu. From the amuse bouche to the dessert, the service was excellent, the presentation creative and artful and the food was perfection - fresh ingredients with wonderful flavors and in just the right-sized portions. We ordered a local sancere - a perfect compliment to our repast. The chef, a delightful young lady, came to speak with us, answering questions about her training and her new venture. We met her husband and her adorable daughter. I overheard one of the other couples with our group tell her that hers was the best meal they'd had in 10 days in France. We ceratinly had to agree that it was absolutely worth the drive into town and the walk in the downpour to experience the delightful evening!
