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.

A trap for wealthy tourists, far from being a top class restaurant. No value for money, poor service, average food. Really disappointing experience.

The restaurant is in a hotel; and away from the tourists restaurant area. Our hotel was next door. The room is beautiful. The service is a bit over the top yet simply questions about food item could not be answered depending on who you asked. They suggested we order the dessert soufflé in advance and we did. We waited over 30 minutes after dinner without explanation. Finally the soufflé came and we were told it had "fallen: more than once. it was not particularity good and frankly we should have been given an option to forgo it or at least not be charged!
