A limited menu, but as a non meat eater I had plenty of choice and everything was a feast for the eyes as well as delicious. We have enjoyed many 1 star Michelin restaurants in France and this was right up there. The menu gourmand at €37 (4 courses) was a fantastic bargain, not too much food so you couldn't... More

If you want rustic food and large portions don't come to the Vielle Tour, but if you appreciate the subtle use of flavours and beautifully presented food then this could be for you. I would have given this 5 stars if the desserts had been up to the standard of the excellent starters and main courses but this aside I... More

As a traveler passing through a small town in the Loire valley we only get a snap shot of how things are. We were the only table in the back room of La Vielle Tour - the food was good, the menu was fun, the service was great - but I got an over all feeling of fatigue in the... More

it was my third visit to this restaurant (the last one was 2 years ago) and I do not regret going there again a bit. The staff is really nice and helpful and the cuisine is as usual at a very good level. The amuse bouche was delicious, the local white wine recommended by the waiter (sold by glasses) was... More

A lovely restaurant in a small, sleepy town. We had a charming waiter who was very accommodating. The decor is chic and the choice of jazz music was perfect in the background, giving a relaxing atmosphere. We were served leisurely which alllowed us time to fully appreciate each course and chat in between. The food was delicious, especially the hake... More

My wife and I dined here in July, and were very glad we found this place. The food was amazing, and we also have very good service. Make sure to get reservations, and you won't be dissapointed.

Chef Elodie and her husband opened this place after Elodie furbished her weapons with Chef Yann Roncier in Boulogne. Don't miss this true gem in Cellettes. Creative dishes, great wine list and friendly service. Travelling all the way from Paris to Cellettes to eat at La Vieille Tour is 100% worth it !

We were staying nearby and had eaten in several local restaurants. Our meal here was an outstandingly good experience. A very pleasant, small dining room facing the road, but we were not troubled by noisy traffic. Attentive and discrete service and a good wine list supported the excellent food. The amuse-bouche we started with was extraordinary, beetroot crime brûlée?! Delicious!... More
