I did a fair amount of research prior to arriving in Amboise and this place wasn't even on my radar. We ended up here after the restaurant we were originally trying to eat at was full for the night and we could not have been happier that we did. The waiter was one of the nicest that we came across in all of France, he was very patient with our weak French. Additionally, every dish we had was great. Very typically French food and we were very pleased. We would go again.

Small charming place in the city center of Amboise, try cocotte or meat on pierrade, you can cook meat yourself at the table! Cozy atmposhere with a piano, they probably play some jazz music during some days of the week.

Amboise was teaming with people yesterday (mid August) and this restaurant was a quiet refuge. We realky enjoyed the food - charcuterir plates and savoury crepes, the wine selection was small but nice and prices reasonable.

Spotted this after trying to find somewhere off the main tourist drag, and glad we did. Sat outside on a big wooden table - foie gras and a platter of charcuterie followed by a pierrade ( hot stone where you cook your own meat) . A good meal . Friendly service - they tried hard to look after us. Wine mediocre but good crepes to finish with;

In a heavy August downpour, we took refuge in this charming restaurant which specializes in crepes, cocottes, and grills. My colleague enjoyed a grillade of beef sur pierrade, which he pronounced excellent; my own cocotte was less convincing. Together with two coffees and a carafe of Chinon the total of 42€ was reasonable. Good service and pleasant atmosphere.
In the evenings, out of the summer season, there are jazz concerts, when it will be essential to book since the restaurant is quite small.
