Friendly service in this small restaurant with great food and a fine selection of local wines. Set menus are really good value for money, with enough choice to satisfy anybody. Worth booking as it does get busy.

This lovely restaurant, across from Chateau Amboise, is a lovely place for a meal. There are many other restaurants in Amboise with better food, but this was one of the few recommended that was open for lunch on Monday. The service was very good and...More
