As soon as we walked into the restaurant, on a cold December evening, one of the first things we noticed was the roaring fireplace. This gave the whole restaurant a really warm and comfortable feeling. The general decor in the restaurant, including the fireplace itself is very modern and smartly designed. I have included photos of my full menu, as... More

My husband and I had a Sunday meal at La Tour. It was totally amazing!!! Every course was beautiful to look at and included a mixture of flavors that were so different and special. I loved every single plate. I felt that it was a bargain for the quality of the ingredients and the uniqueness of the presentations. The staff... More

This restaurant is worth a second visit next year. Cordial wait staff, lovely interior, beautifully presented food of delightful flavor. Wine prices were very very reasonable, as were the entrees, given the high calibre of the cuisine. Enjoyed the evening thoroughly!

We visited La Tour two nights in a row because of the quality of food but also the service. Due to a downpour we asked arrived well before opening time. No problem at all to the staff who were most understanding and welcoming . The food is absolutely delicious. Definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere near the beautiful... More

We had dinner in Le Tour with my friends-sommeliers in September 2016. Because of this resto is mainly full-booked, we were very happy, because of we had possibility to book table for 5 same morning. Location is perfect, at the centre square of village. Interieur was very simple and modern although the building is old. At first I was amazed... More

We visited this restaurant prior to a Sancerre wine tour and voted it the best food we had on our French holiday. The surroundings were elegant and comfortable with excellent service. The food was fresh and full of flavour with beautiful plating. Very enjoyable! And the amuse bouche and aperitifs were delicate and so tasty. Try the local wines with... More

We decided last minute to pay a visit on a very hot August day, 3 years after our first visit and this is again perfection at affordable prices. The food is great, simple, perfectly executed (ah those ris de veau....), wine recommendation is excellent and staff very friendly. Well done. We shall not wait so long to come back.

I have been to La Tour once a year on my annual trip to Sancerre for the past 5 years and it never fails to provide outstanding food. It is superbly presented, the flavours are delicious and sometimes very unusual and the service good. Tasting menu that includes a wine with each course are good value and worth doing.

Clearly, the food was delicious. Unique and interesting, playing on textures and presentation, providing the all around fine dining package. I gave four stars as the service was a bit cold (as to be expected) and the atmosphere was a bit too rigid for my taste. Overall, a good value.
