The restaurant is centrally located across the street from the chateau/castle. The street has many restaurants to choose from but, after examining the sidewalk menus, we choose L’Ambacia. All the sidewalk menus were more or less the same which made it difficult to pick a...More

We enjoyed our lunch here. I had the Croque Chèvre and my husband had the lamb. Both were delicious! The waiter didn’t speak any English but we managed to communicate.

The fish and chips and burgers are excellent here and the dessert is delicious as well. I had a great meal. There is also an appetizer that is a bunch of different fried finger foods that is great. The service was good as well.

They squeezed us in on a busy Monday night, which we greatly appreciated. Salads and sandwiches were fresh and tasty. Desserts (chocolate cake & raspberry/lemon curd) were outstanding. Service was very good, especially for how busy they were. It was an enjoyable end to a...More
