I wanted to take my good friend to a nice restaurant on her birthday during our trip to France. I was initially uncertain about making the booking at La Roche le Roy as the restaurant was just outside of Tours center. However, based on the many good reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to give it a try. We took the... More

I went to La Roche Le Roy with my wife and two other couples. Everything was incredible from start to finish. We were welcomed, brought to the table and settled in. We were immediately made to feel at home and put at ease. All of the food from start to finish was excellent. One of the main dishes was pounded... More

Exceptionally high quality food, perfect service by the staff, my stomach is not in a good shape, therefore I only ordered a main dish, but the staff is so attentive that I was offered with both excellent starter and dessert, I really appreciate the two hours spent in the restaurant.

When trying to decide whether to spend another month in France this year, the words La Roche Le Roy popped into every conversation - most happily! We ate here twice in 2015, once more two days ago, and will again tomorrow. This restaurant maintains its very high standards of cuisine and service, while offering great value for a Michelin starred... More

This restaurant is pure pleasure start to finish. Nothing is left to chance. The property, tables, decoration etc are a perfect combination. The staff are a credit to their profession and are both involved and invisible by turns as required. I have never felt in better and more competent hands. The food is exquisite - taste, portion size and presentation... More

For dinner during our one night in Tours we at La Roche Le Roy. The restaurant is in a small chateau at the side of the highway leaving Tours. I was worried that the proximity to the highway might tarnish the atmosphere but it did not. We dined al fresco in a lovely backyard patio and it felt like we... More

Although expensive to get to by taxi, and not cheap once you're there, this restaurant was memorable! We ate here our first night and it set a very high bar for the rest of the trip. The trading menu is substantial and your will be very full by the time you're done. Sitting in the garden on a beautiful night... More

Not just a meal; a total experience from start to finish. The environment, the setting, the staff, the service, even the crockery - but above all the food and wine. We enjoyed a multi course "menu of discovery" that I cannot do justice to in writing. Nor can I over state the standard of service, which was attentive but never... More

The service and food could not have been better, the best restaurant experience ever. Each course (7) was explained in detail by a knowledgeable and very professional waiter.
