This place came across to me as a tourist trap. It is positioned in a great location, the host seemed friendly. However, the food is very average. The French Onion soup was tasteless and the steak was too and very tough. I would avoid in...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.

Had a nice idyllic lunch at the patio - with a view of the chateau. Reasonable prices for the menu of the day. Excellent food, nice dessert and we also had a couple of glasses of Belgian beer.

The four of us decided to find a restaurant "cold" near the Chateau in Amboise. As we were walking down the street next to the Chateau, we saw this restaurant and looked at the TripAdvisor review. We decided to try it. What a delight! The...More

L'Ambacia is in a scenic location with outdoor seating with views of the imposing Chateau walls. The food and ambience were both very good but the thing that stood out was the quality of service. Our waiter, Florent, was a star. He was prompt, attentive...More
