Le Turon Tours
The setting: This restaurant right by the cathedral isn’t lacking in character (timbered walls, tuff rock, a vaulted cellar, etc.) and the name it bears references the Gallic people who once occupied Touraine.
The chef: Mathieu Melin gained his experience working in the largest starred establishments of France and Ireland.
The dishes: Here we taste a traditional yet still trendy cuisine that respects the past and remains creative; these dishes honour regional specialties. The market menu is refreshed weekly.
- The lovely wine menu and the vegetarian options.
- Being able to stop by on Sunday and Monday midday or evening. Very practical!
- The hospitable quality that pairs well with the dynamic nature of this young staff.
- The good products of the estate made by the chef (roi rose, Racan poultry, mashed and dried pears from Rivarennes, Touraine lamb, etc.).
Lunch service: Monday, and Thursday through Sunday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Dinner service: Monday, and Thursday through Sunday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
