We hade a three-course menu with traditional foie gras, a lobster dish with a special twist which was delicious. The dessert consisted of a frozen apricot "soufflé" which tasted good but was a bit of a disappointment. The staff was very nice and helpful, and...More

How fun to stay in a real chateau! Historic setting with modern amenities. Staff gracious and helpful. L'Orangerie restaurant had amazing food with impeccable service. Most memorable experience during our trip to France.

A well run Michelin 1* with good service. The entrees and plates were all excellent (4 of us all tried different things). The cheese course was fabulous, a meal in its self.

A quality Chateau experience. Be taken back in time and experience the life of a lord. The pool is superb and the breakfast is truly delicious. I recommend an evening drink or two in the drawing room. Top notch service with a smile.

Chateau de Pray (one Michelin star) is located just outside of Amboise in the Loire Valley. The restaurant is part of a nice “country house hotel”. The food was excellent! Unfortunately, the rest of the experience was very disappointing. We arrived on time for our...More

One of the better meals I've had on this two-week France trip. Pretty pricy. Think they have a Michelin star so maybe that's why but everything was great. We actually hurried them along because we hate three hour meals but they were friendly and ok...More
