This was one of the most delicious dinners we had in France. Food was quite good value for the money. They were quick. The only bad thing was one of the waitresses forgot our dessert order and didn't seem to understand English. The boss or supervisor noticed that and fixed it quickly.

We waited an hour for our food, seated at the back of the restaurant although it was empty (presumably because we were a family), food ok but we had to send back the steak which was not cooked, we even had to wait 10 minutes to pay. No attempt to apologise or assist. PS we speak French.

We has intended to dine here, starting with an apperatif. However, while the apperatif was lovely ( house distilled rhum) the service was slow and the staff seemed unhappy. We moved elsewhere for dinner.

Relatively speaking a value for money eatery. Found it on my first night and enjoyed the food so much that I went back the second evening having looked at what else was on offer and decided that it was the best option. Definately would eat there again if in Amboise again

Really enjoyed the food here, had typical French food available and it was cooked to perfection! Obviously, as good selection of wine, which was also fabulous! The decor of the place was amazing, really clean and stylish! Would recommend to anyone visiting here and would go again. Staff were helpful and service was amazing!

We went for lunch with some friends, I had the steak and dauphinois - was delicious! The service was good but slow and had to ask a few times for a coffee! Would return when next in Amboise! The decor was very trendy and the food was tasty and fresh. (Merci beaucoup)!

We had dinner here twice and on both occasions the food was delightful, served with unobtrusive panache and reasonably priced. Not Michelin, perhaps but very acceptable after a tiring day visiting the sights. The ambience is modern French, light and airy. Highly recommended.

If you are not sure about french food, don't go here. The atmosphere is nice, service fast and efficient We are use to plates a little less elaborated...too much sauce . It looks fresh but I insist....not sure about French Cuisine? Try somewhere else

We enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant. The staff are polite and efficient and the food was well cooked and nicely presented. The menu offers a good selection of dishes and they have an extensive wine list. Good food and reasonably priced.
