We got there at 6:30 and ordered drinks and were told dinner started at 7 completely fine with us! But then the waiter came over at 7 and wanted to take our order when we said we were not ready but would like another round...More

Rib steak was as tough as the bottom of my boot, tasted as bad; Pizza mediocre at best. They made up for it with miserable service -- slow, very slow. Contempt for non-locals varies in direct proportion to the distance from their front door.

On a chilly afternoon the staff went out of their way to please us. My wife and I returned after an excellent lunch (tasty quiche and baguette sandwich) and, after a walk, were invited back to 'our table' (as the staff said) for later coffee...More

This lunch was our first meal after arriving in Amboise. The sidewalk cafe was quite pleasant and the service was efficient and friendly. I had the ever popular Croque Monsieur and it was much thicker than what you normally get. The salad that came with...More

Food, service, and prices are all ok. We had croque madame, club sandwich, and a dessert crepe. Total was 26 euros which is fair. They offer indoor and outdoor seating. Right across from the chateau. This café is ok for lunch but not above average....More

We stopped for a late afternoon drink at Cafe du Chateau. Great location on the main street of Amboise. The local sparkling wine called Vouvray Petillants was excellent - wish we could buy this at home.

We had a nice glass of wine here when we first arrived in Amboise. Later, we stopped by at lunchtime to get something to eat. The staff was apparently unconcerned about how long we were waiting for a menu, so we left. There's too many...More

This strip of Amboise is lined with sidewalk cafes, one winds up eating where there is a table available. We were in the mood for lunch pizza and this filled the bill. Good enough. Pleasant enough, service fine.
