We had a wonderful meal here. it's in a slightly odd location and not somewhere you'd necessarily stumble across, but it's well worth taking a slight detour out of the centre of town to find it. We had an excellent meal, the smoked beef fillet...More

The food is excellent. Service is nice and fast. Decoration is modern and welcoming. The situation of the restaurant is surprising. It is not in the city center (walk 15 min). Surroundings have no interest. It is almost impossible to go there if nobody advice...More

A great little find on the edges of the industrial area near the river. An excellent menu de jour with generous portions and good service.

We visited on my wife's birthday and it was a real treat. In fact she said that the meal was one of the best she had eaten. The service was very friendly and attentive and the desserts were excellent, especially the brulee.

Our meal at L'Ambroisie exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent, but the food is ultimately what we came for. The steak accompanied with a beet/wine reduction was incredible. We arrived early and noticed the tables all filled as the evening went on. The modest...More
