My first experience in l'Odéon. Extremely well situated near the train station with parking underground just out front. Busy area of Tours, but none of the noise comes indoors, very pleasant dining area, impeccable tables, cleaniness. We only saw one member of staff (weekday lunch), who was obviously in his first stages, but he coped extremely well with a group... More

This restaurant is well-known by the locals specially businessmen for lunch and diner. The menu is rather simple : the menu of the day and the "Odéon" menu. Both have a nice choice in appetisers, main courses and desserts. The price are really good for the value. Last but not least the food was excellent, quite sophisticated, nice presentation and...

Be sure to have the langoustine and boudin starter - it is delicious! We were there on a quiet night, didn't feel rushed and enjoyed the calm decor of the room. Everything out of the kitchen looked good - we took the veal chop and the souffle desert - yummy!

From the moment we entered the place to the end of our meal everything was handle with great care and precision.... More

We made a reservation over the telephone. Unfortunately this was not possible in English but I managed. Menu was also not available in English, but the hostess helped us with the translation (although she didn't really seem happy with that). The food and wine however were really nice. This restaurant is worthwhile a visit, but the atmosphere and service is... More

We tried l'Odeon ones spec as soon as it opened on a Friday evening. The manageress was a little reluctant to accommodate us as we hadn't booked, but gave us a very nice table. The food was excellent - marinated smoked salmon, capon, monkfish and similar courses, with a superb dessert of a savarin with a flambéed rum sauce. Three... More

We had lunch at the Odeon - the lunch menu (entree + main) is 15 Euro - excellent value for the price. The dishes we had were all outstanding in taste and presentation - I loved the fish. We were recommended a relatively inexpensive Loire valley white wine - which went very well with the fish. The chef also prepared... More

We had dinner, but I must say it was a bit disappointing, there was a smell entering the restaurant which was in our opinion not pleasant. We had the special menu and I ordered the recommended fish with fresh asparagus of the season, I got ONE whole asperagus!!! disappointing.

This restaurant doesn't catch the eye from the outside, but definitely worth a visit. Warm welcome. Good level of English spoken, should you need that. Set menu at 22 euros interesting and well balanced. Good value for money. Local wine recommended by maitre d'hôtel was very pleasant. Quiet and efficient service. Will certainly return when next in Tours.

Thank Margaret L
