Excellent service and ambiance. The staff were very attentive and gracious. The chef made a wonderful salad not on the menu of mixed greens and tomato on request. It was wonderful. The turbot entree was amazing! The strawberry cake was not too sweet, excellent texture and flavors. A memorable experience! Well done! Well worth the value!

The dining room above street level give an amazing view on the Loire and it is perfect for dinner to see the sun going down.

Service impeccable and very attentive staff.

The souffle is a must...

Very nice restaurant in higher price range (100€ per person for three courses, apatizer, wine and coffee). But i think it is well worth. Everything was prepared and presented in thorough perfection. We loved the combinations of different flavors. Staff was very friendly. We made reservations online, which worked really well. Restaurant was full that evening and we were lucky to have a place on short notice.

The food was so good, service impeccable and attention to detail spot on. There was a light that had a flicker which was annoyingly distracting, I ordinarily wouldn’t mind such a thing but this was persistent and you couldn’t ignore it. A little back ground music would have lent to the ambiance and potentially distracted from the bothersome light. I would certainly go back and highly recommend it.

The food was incredible and the staff was very accommodating when we were delayed getting into town. It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it.

Great service and very tasty food. We came by night so we didn’t get to see the Loire river but it’s definitely an address to repeat!

This was our third visit but it will be the last. 36 is sadly not what it was. The food was tired with only one memorable dish. The dessert that should be the grand finally, we didn't even finish, really not nice. We were two of only five diners on a Sunday evening when a lot of restaurants are closed, so I guess it shows that our thoughts are shared by others.
Two of the three staff were very pleasant and professional, but one clearly didn't want to be there.
Too many good restaurants in Amboise for us to bother with this poor value one again.

The service once we got to the table was very good and what you can expect for fine dining. Food was fabulous. It was off-season (late November) so dining room was 25% full, which could be expected anywhere in town.


Only complaint was we were recieved at 6:50 for a 7:30 dinner with expectation of bar opening at 7:00, it didn't... but not a big deal given off-season.
