Get to Le shaker early is my biggest piece of advice, so you get the best seats. View is awesome, selection is amazing. Drinks are huge and there are nibbles available

This is a delightful riverside bar overlooking the Loire River. It is a wonderful location for a view of the Chateau Amboise and watching the sunset! Very friendly and pleasant staff!

Found on Trip Advisor, small bar with a great view of Chateau Amboise. Good drinks and tasty snakes. Perfect for sunset viewing!

Very extensive wine/cocktails menu. Friendly service, and the view on the castle is invaluable, especially in the evening.

Le Shaker is the nearest Bar/Restaurant to the campsite and on a warm, sunny, evening busy with locals and tourists enjoying good food and a wide range of drinks. Would happily go again. The owner was very friendly and spoke good english.

Just a short walk across the River from the Hotel d'Amboise to this gem of a cozy bar/restaurant with good food and welcoming staff. I wish the weather was such that we could have eaten outside and enjoyed the view as well as the food.

The location of this cocktail bar is exceptional, which explains its attraction. We have not had a look inside, so can't comment on the interior, but in my opinion it only really makes sense to visit on a warm day when you can sit outside...More

This is an excellent place to sit outside, enjoy a glass of wine (or other adult beverage), and take in the peacefulness of the Loire River with a view of a chateau on the other side of the river. Food is good, but there are...More
