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 courses for three people with a bottle of rose and tip - €150 - which we thought was OK for the quality of the food.

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 a special lactose-gluten free dish for one of us - we really appreciated the effort. Service was attentive and very helpful. All in all we had a wonderful gourmet lunch at a cost of a standard plat-du-jour.

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.

Place was recommended by local colleagues : we were not disappointed ! freindly wlecome, nice dining room also a bit cold in temperature and decoration. I took the gambas as starter , the foie gras poele as main course, every thing was perfectly prepared, well coooked with delicate flavors , and omelette norvegienne as dessert , excellent too . They served mise en bouche before , also very tasty :wine list a bit short only Loire wines ( well that's the area ! ) but the Sancerre we selcted was quite good. We were 3 and paid 57 euro each , so not cheap but worth it.
