La Promenade, Jacky Dallais

This is one of my favourite restaurants in France and given the quality of the food certainly offers amazing value for money. Dallais champions local produce including geline de Touraine, a particularly flavoursome local bred of chicken. Splendid wine list not just for the Loire but for other parts of France especially Languedoc-Roussillon, orchestrated by Xavier Fortin. Somewhat to the south of the main Touraine region, being an hour's drive southeast of Tours, you can stay overnight at the pleasant B&B opposite, Au Fil de l'Aigronne.

Useful information: Menus: €40-€85. Closed Sunday evening, plus all day Monday and Tuesday. Some annual closures. Booking essential.
