The meal was classic french and all four of us enjoyed our experience immensely. Right along the Loire River. A must for Amboise.

One of worst places I have ever been to. I will never go there again! Meet was served cold and clearly was not fresh. Service was extremely slow. Kids Menu was a disaster. Seemed as they used food leftovers... Pls Don't Go.
