Great variety of food, always good service and delicious food.

Variety of dishes for even the fussiest eater.

We are not gourmet diners. Having said that we certainly arrived on the right night after an 8 year
absence. We were seated same table looking out at the chateau. Food was good, service quick.
For French Italian food this restaurant is just fine.

We went out hungry and tired and stopped in for an easy comfort food meal because the menu looked like it had what we wanted. The vegetable soup was bland and thin. The spaghetti bolognaise was also bland and needed lots of salt and Parmesan to eat it. And it had no extra sauce to enjoy with the multitude of bread you get in France. My shrimp and scallop entree was good but served on wilted lettuce. All in all one of the worst meals we have had over 4+ weeks in France.

The front was full so we were ushered to the back which was still a nice courtyard, although no views on the chateau or passers by, but our first impressions were of a pretty angry waitress, not just cultural differences either as a French couple walked out after a few minutes.

Food was average, but I had a steak which was a fabulous piece of meat, the others in our party having various pastas were less impressed, a soup for starters was bland and tasteless

That said its reasonable value if you go for the lunchtime deals, and its hard to find a better spot to eat, if only the product and service were slightly better

Another of the many restaurants facing the chateau in Amboise. We sat outside watching in the sun go down over the chateau and people walking by. The food is fine, tasty and decent portions but probably catering for hungry tourists wanting something other than french rather than trying to compete as a high end Italian restaurant. The service was fast and friendly and it's not particularly expensive.
