Arrived Le Puy for the start of the Stevenson Trail. We had fortunately booked the restaurant from uk before we left. Every table was taken on the night of our visit What a fantastic start to our holiday. As near perfection as one would wish. Staff were wonderful without being intrusive. The meal was absolutely outstanding. The many small touches... More

The food just kept on coming! And it was very, very good. Highly recommended and whilst it was expensive, it was also very good and value for money. Service very attentive with very nice staff. Reservation is essential.

Set in a very old street with history all around. The interior is well worth a visit. Service is smart and polished. I found they were more warmer once they realised we could speak a little French. Wine list is quite extensive , only one choice of house white,red and rose by the glass. We chose the white and it... More

Loved this restaurant. Beautiful setting, wonderful food and very professional service. Excellent wine list and the cheese board to die for. Don't miss it!

Friday night was not a busy night, but we had a warm welcome and a great choice. I choose the 29€ menu, with a glass of wine, and my wife chose the turbot. Along with the amuse bouche, we had more than enough to eat! Cheese choice was great. Lovely food, well presented and served.

I was to begin the Santiago pilgrimage and sought a Michelin-recommended place for my launch celebration. I was prepared to splurge on the top menu at €56, but found the menu du marché (€29) that has been praised by other reviewers had choices more to my desires. Excellent food, well presented. The service was as though this were a 2*... More

To fully enjoy the gastronomic experience chez Tournayre, ensure that you have a big appetite. The cheese cart itself is worth the visit! Also, I would recommend booking at this serious restaurant as a lot of preparation is necessary for this haute cuisine. Bravo, Eric!

Maître d'hôtel was efficient and very professional. Everybody was prudently welcoming. My husband and I went for the "menu du marché " not only because it was less expensive but because it seemed more appealing, and that is a rare quality in a restaurant. Food was perfect. My husband and I are both chefs and it is usually difficult to... More

There's not much more I can say that hasn't been said by other reviewers. The food and the service in this restaurant are both absolutely superb, and the price is so much less than you'd pay for a restaurant of this quality in the UK. If we could pick this place up and deposit it in Scotland, I'd be a... More

Restaurant Tournayre is a favourite of our French friends who took us there for dinner during our recent stay with them. It was a perfect choice, the food was superb,the ambiance, wine and service was excellent. The choice of cheese from the traditional trolley was vast, the waiter took time to describe every cheese to each of us as he... More
