Very tasty, fun wines. Something for everyone

we went here on the recommendation of our concierge and it was wonderful! We had great service and the potatoes were far better than the fancier restaurant we ate in the following evening. Convinced our teens that French food is great! Highly recommend this for an easy casual dinner in Amboise.

Good helpful staff, nice atmosphere and really good food. Can see why this place is so high up in the rankings. We only just got in as we hadn't booked and this was mid Feb. Suggest you try it, but book first.

We ate here for dinner and were seated on the terasse on a lovely evening. The service was slow, the food left us underwhelmed. I had the snails and the lamb chops, but was left feeling no desire to revisit.

We arrived in Amboise on a Saturday in August and had Chez Bruno booked and we were delighted as it started our holidays in Amboise off perfect! The food was very very good & we had a beautiful bottle of Touraine savignon Blanc brought to our table in a cool plastic bag bottle container, we bought one afterwards in a... More

After swinging by La Fourchette and discovering reservations are a MUST there, the owner of that restaurant recommended Chez Bruno. Hard to get a better vote of confidence than another excellent local restaurant owner sending you over. This place has an atmosphere like a group of foodie friend started a restaurant together and just enjoy good food and wine and... More

We (4) thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner here. The restaurant came highly recommended by our B&B. I would think reservations are likely needed most evenings; certainly the night we were there, it was fully booked. We enjoyed the pork with apricots (wonderful!) and the lamb shank (also very good). The service was efficient and pleasant. Starters were also very tasty.... More

Great lunch today at Chez Bruno. Highly recommended by the hotel, we stopped between chateaux visits. The duck was perfectly prepared and the sauce was perfect. The filet mignon of pork with apricot was delicious and the au gratin potatoes were tasty and cooked beautifully. We sat in the cave area (bar) and it was very nice. A bit busy,... More
