It was our Thanksgiving in Canada and we had been away from home for six weeks. We knew we weren't going to get turkey but were willing to accept chicken as a substitute for the family turkey dinner we were missing at home. We had been sent to L'Epicerie by the owner of our B&B, who assured us we would... More

We spent our last evening in Amboise having a meal at La Reserve. We didn't book a table, we turned up early to avoid the rush later on. We didn't go for three courses, choosing just to have a main. The menu contains just the right amount and variety of food to chose from. I chose the Duck breast with... More

We decided on Le Reserve for lunch on our first day in Loire. Restaurant is in a nice location in Amboise. The staff gave us good advice on what to order, so that was very helpful. Food was excellent & fresh.

When having lunch or dinner sitting outside, you have a great view on the Château Royal Amboise. Nice and friendly staff. Good dishes for a nice price.

Found this delightful restaurant in Amboise whilst walking through the town. Looked clean and inviting and went in to book a table, staff very helpful booked the table we wanted and returned 30 minutes later to take up residence at our reserved table. We chose the champagne by the glass to start which was courtesy served with a tapenade. Lovely... More

good location, friendly service, broad menu for adults and kids, fairly priced, a bit noisy because it's on the main drag near the chateau - but that's to be expected.

We have been there as it looked to be the most visited place and were positively surprised about the nice service and the food proposed. Especially the dessert was very nice.

Great looking place with a very great atmosphere. It's a bit pricy for what you get but it is in a tourist trap location. I ordered the chicken supreme. It was a very small sparrows breast size stingy portion. The chicken was barely warm. The sauce had too much flour in & was too thick & had almost no flavour.... More

Readers from the UK and Ireland will know "chips" others might refer to "french fries" or even "frites". Well they are amazing. The nice thing is that the rest of the meal lived up to the chips! Great service from very pleasant attentive staff. Those nice touches such as replacing a water karaf before it went empty. Coming back with... More

The staff here are absolute awful- we were crammed into a very small corner and the staff were so busy they were continually running past the table. We were ignored for quite some time and finally a waitress arrived to take out order. She clearly had an issue with us, we aren't fluent French speakers but we try very hard... More
