My wife and I ate there the first night of our trip through Amboise and had a very good meal on the terrace, just up against the chateau wall. We were walking around outside, doing the typical menu checking. One of the waiters saw us and came out to offer us a couple of quick comments about the menu. He... More

We loved this restaurant at the foot of the château, it was very nice service, something for everyone in our family including the vegetarian as well as the carnivores. The wine from the local region was quite good as well. The service was very nice, with a smile and great advice. We would definitely return if we were in the... More

We liked this place so much that we did it a second time in the same week in June 2014. The relaxed atmosphere and outside area on the second floor was very fitting for us. The food was good and the local wine seledtions abundant. My wife and I were on a week long bike ride in the Loire Valley... More

Don't be deceived by the somewhat low rent sign on the side of this charming building. The food and service inside are great and dining outside on the terrace out the back is wonderful on a warm evening. We ate here twice during our week in Amboise. This restaurant offers a lot more choice on the menu than the others... More

Had a lovely lunch here after visiting the Le Chateau du Clos Luce up the road. The terrace area provides for a fantastic, sunny setting under the looming gaze of the castle walls. For starter I chose snails in a creamy, parsley sauce, which was quite different to how I've had them before and was lovely. For the main I... More

We (4 people) have a lunch in l'Amboiserie restaurant today. The service was terrible. This is the first time we met so unpleasant waiter in France. He do not speak English that is acceptable but he did not make any attempt to understand our questions and help us. We kept a feeling we made him a real problem by the... More

if you want to have an easy dinner, the location is right. the view is nice and just near the castle. The food is good and waiters are friendly. But you must find them because they are understaffed and the service is slow. Be patient and have a very good crepes.
