    Excellent food, service, and wine, and very reasonably priced! What is there not to like?! Desert was the stand out, but the cured trout was also exceptional.

    Bib Gourmand rated restaurant that did not disappoint. Creative dishes that cleverly blended surprising ingredients. Our best meal so far during our monthlong visit to France.

    What a beautiful room to dine and the food was outstanding. The two women serving were very warm and attentive. The prices are very reasonable for the quality, inventiveness, ambiance, and sheer labor to achieve. Highly recommend.

    Food, service and ambience were all terrific, especially the first two. The wine list was small but extremely reasonably priced and beautifully selected. The food was simply exceptional.

    This is a lovely restaurant. The tables were nicely spaced in an inviting room. We were able to make reservations on line which is very helpful when you are from another country. Our waitress was very kind, she was encouraging while I tried to speak French, even though we all knew her English was better ! The best of course was the outstanding food. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented in a picture worthy fashion. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!

    This restaurant was a great find. If your priorities for a great restaurant are seasonal quality food cooked and served with pride and passion to really showcase produce to its best and with a smile then this is the place to go. Bravo!

    Le Lion d'Or is located near the Loire river, in the centre of Amboise. The location is good, and the restaurant is elegant and well decorated. Service is excellent, and so is the food. The menu offers a reasonable choice of starters, main dishes and desserts and the prices are reasonable.

    Incredibly delicious and well presented food served very well in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Outstanding value. You’d easily pay two to three times as much for the same meal in other places. My only slight criticism would be regarding the atmosphere that is out of step with the amazing food quality. It could be easily remedied by more subtile lighting and maybe a working fireplace. Regardless I would come back to dine here in a heartbeat and highly recommend this restaurant.

    Some good cooking, but a not very congenial room and poorly paced service. Wine list also falls short. Terrible coffee, and "pay at the register" is a shock at a Michelin rated restaurant. I had a much, much better experience for the same price at le Clos d'Amboise two nights previously.

    Merci pour la bonne cuisine. Le restaurant était complet d'où le service mal rythmé, veuillez accepter nos excuses ! Nous sommes désolés que la carte des vins ne soit pas plus fournie (+ de 70 vins différents quand même) !

    Highly recommended restaurant and superb value. Started with a beef cheek and foie gras terrine, with a cornichon sorbet, the cold of the sorbet was a little weird but a lovely dish. Both mains were fantastic, I had chicken and my wife had lamb. Sauces were excellent, real depth of complex flavours, quality cooking. Desserts also very, very good. Service was very friendly, would return in a heartbeat. We ate in the older dining room and would prefer it to the newer annexe for ambience.
