We had drinks here two days in a row while waiting for the dinner restaurants to open at 7pm. ( this is France!). Both the patrons and the workers were very friendly and welcoming to us. It has a motorcycle theme and it was entertaining to watch the various motorcycles parade by. I liked that it was multi-generational as well.... More

Friendly waiters even during flood of Bastille Day crowds. Great food, dessert and coffee. Would return for sure.

Stopped for lunch whilst in Amboise. Reasonable prices for the area . Baguettes were ok but I agree the gallettes were not so good. Friendly service and worth a stop if not wanting a full sit down meal

Luke warm beer, ok service and the worst gallette ever. The gallette was pre made and very dry and cracked, the cheese was not melted. And the waiter forgot the Croque in the oven. Avoid this trap.

The chef tries. Does his own butchering. Greets the regulars. Has a loyal following. He should get a brush-up course in cuisine al la francaise. A giant entre cote was tough and uninspired.

Great view, good food and great staff. You can't get better than that. Ordered a panini, crepe and beer. The people were very friendly and the view across the chateau can't be beat. We will be back

Stopped for a quick coffee before visiting the chateau directly opposite. This cafe features a Harley Davison motorbike outside. Apparently on Sundays you can see many Harley's aggregated here. The coffee was surprisingly good for what is a low budget snack stop. However the loos had no toilet paper and had become a little messy as a result.

My husband and I ran in here to avoid the rain. The only positives I can give are that we avoided getting wet and had a seat. The wine was awful. The crepe, with sugar and lemon, was horribly sweet and tasted of washing-up liquid (there was no real lemon on it). How can you ruin a simple crepe? Would... More
