A wonderfule experience from the moment you enter

Neither the previous reviews (nor even pictures) do this wonderful restaurant justice. To begin, the restaurant is set literally within the side of a limestone cliff which is typical of the region and the winemaking. The surrounding chateau seems beautiful, though we were not guests.

More prentious than it really is. Had a main and desert but had to wait for over an hour before the main finally came. Guess the wait killed the appetite. The lobster was good if not very good but the veal was average. The desert was so so too. Not too much to write about.guess was taken in more by... More

Really disappointing. It doesn't worth the value. Facts: 1) Although mentioned in the menu, they didn't have the dish ordered (I haven't ordered something really unusual but just green asparagus for starter and they did in have it) . 2) average meal with no superior taste. Veal can be found in any restaurant in the region. 3)long time waiting to... More

We loved our stay at this beautiful hotel. Although it is away from the central part of town, you don't have to go far for divine food & wine with the onsite restaurant. The hotel has a great historic atmosphere, rooms a spacious and clean.

I travel a lot and eat at a lot of restaurants. I cannot recall when I have had a finer meal than the one my wife and I had at Chateau de Pray. Service was impeccable and not pretentious. View from our table of the grounds and valley below were amazing. Wine advice was spot on. And the food was... More

Beautiful hotel and we sat outside on the terrace for dinner. Magical setting! The food, setting, and service truly worthy of their Michelin star. Two of the dishes the pigeon and rack of lamb were the standouts. Our wives had the four course set menu for 56 euros which was a great value. Outstanding cheese tray and desserts were delicious....

A little distance from central Amboise but no worse for it. Reception was friendly and so helpful, the dog even got his own bed! Our dinner there was a highlight and the staff were charming. Our trainee waitress overcame her nerves to do a good job! The dog was a little possessive of "his" garden in a very short space... More

The chateau is set slightly outside Amboise in wonderful gardens complete with multilingual cats. The setting is lovely, my very comfortable room was in one of the turrets and very convenient to the restaurant. Restaurant was wonderful, fantastic food and wine, staff great and service levels fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would happily return, often.

This was a special occasion for us and this restaurant in a beautiful chateau lived up to expectations. The service was impeccable - attentive without being intrusive - all the staff were absolutely delightful. The sommelier was helpful, knowledgeable and not at all condescending. The food was delicious and the presentation very impressive. The extras - with our cocktails, between... More
