I've been here a few times with various people - it's become a 'go-to' when in Amboise. I've tried a variety of things on their menu and have never been disappointed! The staff have always been friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for good, reasonably priced food!

Nothing special, just a fairly well run family style Brasserie. We would go back. Service was ok, but the waitress had too many tables to service so she must be very tired at the end of the day. We had to order coffee three times before it arrived. Burgers are fabulous and there is a good choice. Wine list was... More

We had to wait 20 minutes to receive a menu (first you receive only drinks menu) and then another 20 minutes for drinks to be served. Some of the drinks were incorrect - so after 40 minutes I decided to call a manager. Our waitress didn`t speak English and didn`t understand an international word "manager", so anather waiter was asked.... More

Great brasserie food at very reasonable place. We had the 3 course menu, foie gras then bavette and finally strawberry soup just delicious. Limited choice of wines, thus not 5 stars Don't try the restaurants on the main street behind this one, we stopped at a burger place, the salad was full of sand, every guest was complaining. Do your... More

We had dinner here on a busy Friday night. My husband raved about his veal chop (impossible to get at home), and all in all the good was very good. However the service was some what slow, and several tables who had arrived after us were served before us- they happened to be French visitors so we were feeling somewhat... More

If you are looking for a descent sized air conditioned restaurant in Amboise, this is it. The food was good with a good wine list.

We came here with friends to celebrate just being together and had some champagne. Service was great and sitting outside (not in the dark bland courtyard) was very nice.

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.
