All I can say is "wow, what an unexpected surprise"! This restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and she told us this was her favorite in Tours. She was absolutely spot on. The restaurant is small but the tables are positioned so that everyone has plenty of room and can have a conversation without interfering with others. It is run by a family and the chef actually comes to the table for your order. The service was outstanding and nothing was rushed. We ordered the chef's suggestion which consisted of 4 courses included foie gras and sea bass. The food was spectacular and the foie gras was some of the best I have ever eaten.
Dinner was so good we went back our last night in Tours and this time we were hoping for some fresh chanterelles which he happened to have available and he prepared a dish of scallops served over the mushrooms. My mouth is still watering... We were joined at dinner by a couple from Switzerland who had some food restrictions and the chef was absolutely accommodating as he prepared special dishes just for them. The prices were very inexpensive and the wine list, although not extensive, was adequate and the wine was very reasonably priced. This place was a winner!! Le Saint Honore turned out to be one of our two favorite restaurants during our France trip.

Just been here & must thoroughly recommend the food, service & ambience to anyone who values proper french cooking. Flavours to die for, efficient yet unobtrusive service, really good wines at reasonable prices (inc half bottles) & those little extras that make all the difference. The set menu at €27 was superb value. Avoid the tourist traps & go here. You will not be disappointed.

There is not a single negative thing I can say about our wonderful dinner here.
Although the restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, inside was a different story.
The welcome was warm and friendly, the service excellent, the atmosphere was intimate and above all the food was delicious.
It was our first night in the Loire region, and it got our holiday off to a magnificent start.
Very highly recommended.

The place is very nice and the food is really french: delicious! I do recommend the "magret de canard" and the fish. The desert are really flavorsome. Me and my husband went there twice and we will return soon, until 29th October, when we are going to Paris.

I discovered this restaurant recently during a dinner with work. The outside is unassuming and is housed in a former boulangerie. The restaurant is owned by a couple who have been gradually building this business since 2008. We enjoyed a wine tasting selection followed by a tartare of salmon with langoustines and a main course of cabillaud on a mushroom bed. Very well presentation, fresh and delicious. I liked it enough to put on the short list to revisit with my wife.
