Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here, love the concept (you choose the number of courses you want, but not the actual meals), the service was just the right mix of quite formal, but friendly and knowledgable. Definitely one of the top addresses in Tours!

Went there for lunch and chose menu. It was great experience and excellent service, despite ordinary lunch. Dishes were small, but very original and enough for lunch. Great wine list, but house wine was great too which is not always the case in France.

We were recommended this restaurant by the Office de Tourisme and were not disappointed. Only 22 covers, this is a small, intimate restaurant. One had a choice of between 3 and 7 courses and the formula is a surprise meal. The meal we were served was fantastic. We took the 4 course meal, which included an amuse bouche, 2 fish... More

The idea is simple and appealing. Everyone gets the same menu of small dishes decided and composed by the chef. Take it or leave it. Unfortunately, the actual meal is a bland experience of simple flavours and textures smeared thinly on a large plate to give the appearence of gourmet without actually delivering any substance. This chef needs more training... More

From the time you enter L'Evidence, you have entered a unique zone that you may get to enter only a few times in your life. We were greeted as if we were welcome friends, although we had never visited previously. Cyril, the Sommelier and our waiter, translated and spoke English fluently. Choosing between a 4, 5, or 7 course meal... More

We had no reservation as the restaurant we had reserved was only accepting cash that evening because of an apparent problem with the bank. This small place was busy with mostly foreign visitors and since it had no air conditioning extremely warm. The menu was limited and we ended up going for the 3 course surprise menu for 38 euros....

What a restaurant. We picked this restaurant basef on trip advisor recommendations as we arrived in Tours after a very long drive. We choose the 7 course and every course was incredible as was the seven wines that accompanied each course. I don't know what it takes to get a Michelin star but this in my view was as good... More

We made a reservation for 8 people, which we could get with some advance planning. The restaurant is small, so it can be challenging to get a table for a bigger group. All of us opted for the full menu and most got the associated wine pairings. The wines matched the dishes very well bringing out the flavors in each... More
