Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: The Auberge de Launay is a 3 chimney Logis situated at Limeray near to Amboise only metres away from the banks of the Loire. You will be seduced by this XVIIIth century restored farmhouse, transformed into a 15 room inn. Our establishment is ideal for visiting the chateaux of the Loire, in particular the Clos Lucé, which housed Leonardo da Vinci. During your stay at the Auberge de Launay, do not miss a stroll in the garden while waiting for a delicious dinner at the restaurant of the hotel.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Went here on recommendation from a friend back home and would have to say it was just wonderful. The setting is quaint country chic but the food was superb. Our family of 4 all had wonderfully prepared dishes complemented with some great wines. The staff were so friendly and provided us with great service. We enjoyed it so much that 2 of us returned again and again were so impressed. So not only was the food, wine & service fantastic but the value for money was brilliant. Do yourself a favour and if in this area make a reservation ahead to enjoy this great restaurant.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We came for a dinner after a day of exploring Loire Valley Chateaus and were served a dinner that would fit the nobles who lived in those castles. They were already full with customers but set up a separate room for our group that was just lovely. The food was authentic, tasty, and nicely presented.

“Unexpected Surprise”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We stayed at the Auberge de Launay due to Tripadvisor recommendations not knowing about the restaurant. As the inn is in the country and we had driven directly from CDG airport that day, we accepted the host's invitation for dinner. My wife had little sleep on the plane, so wasn't excited about eating rather than sleeping, but reluctantly decided to go. What a pleasant surprise. Their fixed course dinner was absolutely magnificent. We took pictures of all the courses to savor the memories, and, of course, ate there again the second night. Ask for the local white wines as they were the best we had in France.

“The best place to eat nearby Amboise”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

One of the best dining experience in France. For starters the place is extremely cozy with a great service. Appetizers very well prepared and very tasty entries. The main course was an experience aside, my wife ate the quail dish with vegetable risotto that was simply divine and I ate the halibut with foie Grais that was very good.

“Quaint restaurant excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Had several excellent meals at Auberge de Launay. Wonderfully friendly staff. Great dining for the price. Loved the ambiance. White table cloth service with a cozy fireplace or dining in the sun room over looking the garden. Casual attire but still felt special and romantic. Great wine list.
