We were so grateful they took us without a booking, they were packed by the time our entree arrived. The service was fast and friendly, wine recommendation was perfect and food was lovely and fresh.

I go to Tours every summer and always go to L'Atelier Gourmand. The menu changes often so there always something new to have. This year, I especially liked the Gambas and the Black Scallops with Black Risoto.
