Recommended by a local B&B to avoid busy central Amboise in high season. The menu was reasonably priced and the food good enough although not particularly elaborate. If expectations are set accordingly you won't be disappointed!

So nice to find a restaurant with plenty of soft furnishing which makes a for a nice quiet dining experience. We found the service to be excellent throughout and the food very good too - we especially liked the amuse Boucher, which was very inventive....More

Recommended by the B&B we stayed in, this is good well-cooked French food with friendly service, albeit a drive if you're staying in Amboise town. A good selection of fixed price menus plus daily specials at a value price makes this a good all-rounder.

Located just outside of Amboise, and worth a visit. We had dinner sitting on the terrace overlooking the garden. Nice atmosphere, friendly people and a good quality of the food, with a French signature.

It's an average restaurant as the service was really very slow. Got to our entree in 1hr. Main was served about 45 mins after our entree. Dessert was better...15 mins after our main course. If you are hungry, this isn't a restaurant to go to.

We were looking for a nice restaurant serving good quality food for an affordable price having eaten in restaurants ranging from Michelin Star to pizzarias and creperies. This was perfect. I especially appreciated the children's menu which was a smaller and less 'grown-up' version of...More
