This I would consider a special occasion restaurant back home, based on prices and type of menu. Very gourmet, you must be a bit adventurous and not finicky.

We went to L'Alliance because it was a recommendation by our travel agency and were not disappointed! The restaurant is a bit offside from the main tourist area in a small street, so we would probably haven't found it without the recommendation. We could sit outside in a small courtyard, because It was a warm summer evening. Quiet and very... More

Served with mashed potatoes and veggies so yummy. Than a cheese plate Saverine our waitress was loving working on her English and doing a great job! Brought us our... More

L'Alliance was recommended to us by our B&B owner, and we were not disappointed. Both the service and our meals were excellent. Our chosen menu items were all very fresh and well-prepared, with the French flare that is so enjoyable when visiting France.

I think it's a real treasure that these two brothers have recently bought, and their cooking and care for what they do, is really special...go there and have some real food, locally grown and organic....a find in a very touristic village.....

We had an absolutely delicious meal here. There was no doubt that it was the best of the four restaurants we tried in Amboise.

The food in this restaurant is excellent, as well as the service. However the atmosphere is ininviting, cold and quiet. The decor is minimal and the patio could use more plants.

We tried this restaurant as it was right next door to our hotel. Food was good. Restaurant has two dining areas--we were in the indoor gazebo type of room. We had the daily set menu which included good gazpacho type soup and both had tasty hake. The giant shortbread type "cookie" with ice cream was very good.

We ate dinner there last night on the recommendation of our B&B hosts. We had the set menu priced at 48 Euro. Excellent lobster salad starter followed by a delicious, light Turbot dish; followed by cheese and a wonderful dessert. The wines were fabulous and reasonably priced. The premises were nice and cool on a mega hot evening and were... More

Oh! What to say about this restaurant? The staff were lovely, but the food was horribly disappointing. And I went there to be fed, after all. Small, haphazard dishes of bland & often clashing flavoring. The dishes on the menu sounded beautiful, so I ordered 5 courses, and every single dish was unpalatable. I went here wanting to be pleased-... More
