Our dinner experience during our stay in Amboise was very good. We wanted to end our stay by eating at one of the Michelin starred restaurants in the area. It did not disappoint. We both ordered the tasting menu. Everything was delicious. The cheese course was exceptional. There was such a large variety of cheese that I was able to... More

We loved coming to Château de Pray after a busy day of sightseeing,& having a glass of wine on the terrace, or a dip in the pool. We spent three nights here, & couldn't have asked for more. We were in a tower room, with a beautiful bath, very comfortable bed, & a great view of the terrace out our... More

I'll preface by saying that I don't normally frequent Michelin star restaurants, so I was excited that we would be treating ourselves to some fine dining in the Loire. Overall, I must say the meal was just ok, but maybe I set my expectations too high. We ordered the five course meal, which ended up having a few extra courses... More

We had dinner at this restaurant during our stay in Amboise. It was beyond delicious. The duck was the most perfectly cooked I've ever had. Flawless service. Eat here, you won't be disappointed.

Just off the main road along the Loire, this a surprisingly quite and comfortable hotel at which to relax after a strenuous day sightseeing. Rooms are comfortable & clean. The restaurant is possibly slightly over-rated and the service exceedingly slow. We very nearly didn't make it to desert. Breakfast is satisfactory. However- the views from the terrace make up for...

Stayed at Chateau as part of package trip so did not have benefit of ordering off full menu. Appetizers and salad were very good - main course of cod just so so as was not served hot. Soufflé Deseret was very tasty. Nice dining room and sea tong area outside for pre dinner drinks. Wait staff was energetic and amusing.

We had a lovely dinner out on their castle terrace. All five of us (our adult children and us) had five-course meals. Every course was exquisite -- the best food we've ever had anywhere! The servings are just the right size -- not too much, but enough to allow you to savor their amazing cuisine. The service was truly exceptional.... More
