This restaurant is nicely located across the street from the Amboise Castle. The decoration and the atmosphere is nice. The employees are nice and friendly. We have been disappointed though by the food which was not always very fresh nor of very good quality.

A very nice cafe that sits at the foot of Chateau Amboise. This cafe is one of many in the plaza. We picked this cafe because it was not crowded, it had free wifi and most importantly, they had ice cream desserts. The service was good and the desserts were very tasty and large. This is a great spot to... More

Good place to go when you feel like something to eat that is not covered in a creamy sauce. American-ish style food (but a bit better cause it's French!) I ordered the fish and chips with trepidation but it was quite good.

The food is very good here and athough the service was slow they were pretty good with kids - they provided plastic cups for our toddler.

Beautiful location, just in front of Amboise Castle. We were quite lucky to have a table near the external terrace. Average quality, friendly service.

The food is ok, the setting is nice but it's just another tourist place to my mind. There are better places to eat for the same sort of price.

We visited this restaurant this time last year, and as we were again in Amboise headed back. A lovely summers Sunday evening so understandably the town was busy, but they are simply trying to squeeze too many tables into the front terrace making access near impossible for a few seats, one of them ours. The service was ok, the male... More

We were into our fifth night eating out in France and we wanted something not so French. This place did burgers etc and we decided that we wanted a change. It was quiet enough when we went in- only three other tables- but there were 5 of us so we didn't mind. The girls who were serving were all friendly... More

Such an inviting interior - very trendy - loved the colors and we enjoyed our dinner. Food and service were a notch above and we would have returned if not for the amazing bakery we found - L'Horloge - which I cannot find to review so it may be too new. L'Ambacia was a great dinner after a day of... More
