We were attracted to this restaurant by its tripadvisor rating. The food was great in a traditional but not French town hotel type setting. Good attentive service and nice extra's in between courses made for a nice evening - was it better than a meal in the town centre with its atmosphere and charm? Not really sure.

We had dinner at this restaurant for 2 nights, as we were lucky enough to be staying at the hotel. Our hosts were friendly and efficient - it seems to be a family run hotel, not at all corporate. The menu was varied and used local produce including fish from the Loire. Our first meal was on a Sunday night... More

On our first night we had our hotel make reservation at La breche. The meal was good but not great. I had a seafood dish that had a total of two medium size shrimp and a pike something or other. There wasn't any pike in that either. If you want protein go elsewhere.

Pleasant ambiance, excellent service, mouth watering creations with food. Our best dining experience so far. Really enjoy the French progression of food service... a number of courses and small "treats" between...slow enough to savor every bite and not feeling too full when you are done. Compliments to the chef..most delicious and enjoyable dinner.

Do try this restaurant if you are in Amboise, especially if you are there on a Monday, as many restaurants are closed. You will be warmly greeted by the owners who go out of their way to ensure your dining experience is pleasant and memorable. Try to go with the evening's specials since they highlight their chef's skills. The wine... More

I visited this restaurant whilst staying at Chateau de Pray. It was recommended and bookings made for me. Chateau de Pray restaurant is not open every evening. This turned out to be a very pleasant substitute. Not all restaurants handle single female diners well. But at La Breche I was seated in a good position and treated with great courtesy.... More

Having read the reviews of this restaurant we were looking forward to our evening as a highlight of our break in Amboise. Unfortunately this was not to be as, although the food was very good it was somewhat lacking in quantity and the staff exhibited a lack of training which resulted in a somewhat slapdash and initially unwelcoming service. Overall... More

Recommended by our hotel , they also made the reservations for us which were certainly needed on a busy Saturday night. I had the pork cheeks, best I've ever had. My husband had a nice filet de boeuf , along with starters, recommended wine (sorry, not familiar with the local wines, but was very good and reasonable). All in all... More

When our hotel dining room was fully booked, the staff made a reservation here for us. It turned out to be quite a treat. In addition to the three courses we ordered, we were also treated to some lovely extras before and after our main course. I had a wonderful veal dish and my husband chose the beef. We enjoyed...

We went with a reservation in early September. Sat outside in a nice courtyard. The food was good, but by the time we got it, it was barely warm. In fairness, there was a large table of fourteen people that got the service, but that's no excuse for our meal not being hot. I would probably try again to give... More
