We came in late, unbooked, for lunch and ordered the set menu: terrine, hamburger frites, fromage blanc all for 14,50€. The hamburgers were particularly good, and cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

Could not fault it. Despite reading other reviews, we had really good service on the two evening visits we made last week and the food was of a high standard. The weather was poor for the time of year so glad the restaurant was cosy inside. Will go back next time we are in Amboise.

2 mins to the Amboise Royal Chateau Easy place to go for lunch or dinner. Food is a good bistrot style, french cuisine. Nice salades, hamburgers, dishes from the region of Tours. When weather permitted it is nice to be at the terrasse away from the crowd and so close to the Chateau. No gastronomy, great brasserie, a good price for the quality.

I've been here a few times with various people - it's become a 'go-to' when in Amboise. I've tried a variety of things on their menu and have never been disappointed! The staff have always been friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for good, reasonably priced food!

We had to wait 20 minutes to receive a menu (first you receive only drinks menu) and then another 20 minutes for drinks to be served. Some of the drinks were incorrect - so after 40 minutes I decided to call a manager. Our waitress didn`t speak English and didn`t understand an international word "manager", so anather waiter was asked. The reply was "Well, what do you want me to do...?" Nobody felt responsable, and in the meantime the family siiting next to us finished their lunch, although they`ve sitted after us. We spend there 1,5 hour instead of 40 minutes. At the end they didn`t charge us for drinks, but I would rather hear I`m sorry from anyone.
Musieliśmy czekać 20 minut na menu (najpierw podają jedynie kartę drinków), a następnie 20 minut na napoje, które były częściowo niezgodne z zamówieniem. Poprosiliśmy menadżera, jednak kelnerka nie mówiąca ani słowa po angielsku nie zrozumiała również tego słowa. Wezwany kelner wzruszył ramionami i spytał co ma zrobić. W międzyczasie fransucka rodzina obok skończyła obiad, mimo żę przybyli tam po nas. Spędziliśmy tam 1,5 godziny, z czego godzinę na oczekiwaniu.Na koniec nie policzyli nam za wino, ale ja chętniej usłyszałabym przepraszam od kogokolwiek, nie mówiąc o szybszej obsłudze.
