My partner and I had a four-day tour around the Loire Valley and based ourselves in Amboise. We were happy to get a fairly late reservation at L'Illot and man were we lucky! This was on our first night and it was far and away...More
The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the B&B where I was staying. It is just outside of the main area of town. When I went earlier in the day to make a reservation it already smelled so good that I didn't want to...More

My wife and I spent fifteen days in France and worked at eating well, but at reasonable prices. Resources like Rick Steves and TripAdvisor guided our choices. Still, through some miscommunication with our bed and breakfast hosts, we found ourselves without dinner reservations at about...More
This is quite a small restaurant so you must reserve in advance. You enter into a room with a central kitchen island where the 2 chefs prepare the food. The welcome is very warm the menu explained with a little humour. The menu is on...More
