We stopped here for lunch after visiting several chateaus in the town. We sat inside to take advantage of the air conditioning on a warm summer day. the menu was in English and French and the wait staff were easy to work with. This is a mixed review because of menu choices. I started with foie gras which was delightful... More

Very tranquil setting in a courtyard framed by an old church. Away from the main drag and better for it. Very good service. Menu Plaisir three courses at 29 euros was good value. Foie Gras (generous portion) followed by duck or sea bass for us. Only criticism was very rich cheesy sauce on the risotto with the sea bass was... More

Large restaurant right off the main street in Amboise serving unremarkable food with fair to middling service.

My sister and I popped in to Hippeau for an early dinner and a rest after a very full day of walking. It was a very good choice. Although the restaurants and cafes just outside of Amboise castle looked inviting, the menus didn't just didn't suit us so we ventured a little further on. The restaurant faces the main road...

Excellent dinner in a great atmosphere and nice modern menu. Parsnip soup was the highlight of the meal, but all the courses were very good and even in quality/presentation.

Easy going. No pressure to order multiple courses. Incredible duck dish. Huge chicken salad. Ate there twice in two days because it was so congenial.

Decent food, pretty good prices, including wine prices. All-in-all a rock steady choice - won't be disappointed - just not exceptional.

We came here on a whim as a family. The exterior and interior are impressive but don't be fooled by the decor. The food was rather short of average and was served cold. Obviously there were some problems with the kitchen and waiting staff that day as we waited for long periods of time in between courses. Staff seemed lost... More

We had been recommended to another restaurant which was full so we tried here because it was nearby. I chose fillet of sea bass with risotto and after a long wait it was tepid when it arrived. I would normally complain but I was so hungry I ate it anyway. It did taste very good-shame about the temperature. Ethan's steak... More
