Small, quaint restaurant-you'll want to make a reservation. Definitely order the cheese! We sampled the whole menu between our party and loved everything!

Eating dinner in a small French town on a Sunday night in winter is not always easy–there are many establishments which are closed. We called L'Epicerie and made a reservation for an early dinner (7:30 pm). When we got there we were the only two in the restaurant. The two ladies who greeted us were very helpful, courteous and attentive.... More

Soon time to scoot off for some lunch ,so much climbing all over castles and palaces gave me an appetite , down in the town I peeped into the windows of the first restaurant I came to L'Epecerie (after checking the menu ), finding it full of townsfolk having Saturday lunch is always a good sign . Delicious smells on... More

Our hotel recommended a lovely bistro, well-regarded for its upscale local cuisine. It was the last night of our trip (before an airport hotel) but we had been eating so much gourmet food, that we wanted a more simple meal. The food here was very good local-style, the ambiance was pleasant and the service was competent. An enjoyable stop if... More

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went back again. They have a fixed price menu which includes 4 courses that is both reasonable and excellent. There are several items offered each night. The locally sourced cheese course offers a wide selection from which you choose. Everyone was very attentive and friendly.

Conveniently located, L'Epicerie was a delightful small restaurant experience (32 max capacity) near Chateau Amboise. It is near all the shopping and sights. The dinner menu and single options (I had salad, omelette, and cheese plate were delicious. Local wines AOC were 8.10€ PER BOTTLE!! We really enjoyed our dinners.

This was the best meal we had in France. I know we could have gone to a much fancier place and spent a lot more money but I really didn't need to. The food and service was excellent, the atmosphere was great. It was under 70€ for 2 people with 4 courses and wine. Fantastic

We should have let them know we didn't have much time when we first got there. When the food did come, it was good- we all had the daily special, either fish or beef with soup and a desert. The food was very good, and very reasonably priced. Just slow.

We went twice and had different dishes, entrees, plats and desserts. All were excellent with fresh ingredients and skilled cooking. Service was slow as could be expected in a popular small restaurant. Booking and arriving early are essential
