The top restaurant in Tours is one of the best in France—with the prices to prove it. It is set in the glorious rooms and gardens of the Château Belmont, an 18th-century Bourgeois home about five minutes by car from the center of town, and its kitchen proudly bears two Michelin stars. The extremely sophisticated, health-conscious food is prepared with a minimum of butter and cream but a maximum of rare herbs and fresh, half-forgotten traditional vegetables (many of which are grown in the restaurant's own garden) and exotic fruits—not to mention plenty of truffles. The menu changes weekly, but seafood figures prominently: lobster gazpacho, red tuna tartare, oysters poached in Muscadet on a watercress purée, fish poached in coconut milk with Granny Smith apples and white onions. Rabbit (stuffed with those rare flowers and herbs) and pigeon with sweet potatoes and a black fig compote are also popular.

Closed Tuesdays.
