Impeccable service, beautifully presented food, excellent recommendations for wine. A delightful, special Christmas lunch for our family while on holiday from Australia.

Set in a formal dining room, this restaurant served well-presented, good food with good service and nice ambiance. The food was good not great. The restaurant was very convenient, literally next door to our hotel, Manoir de Les Minimes.

The dining room is elegant with views of the Loire River. Service was impeccable and food was marvelous. We had a chocolate souffle which was the best we had in France. A memorable dining experience and the best restaurant in that Town.

A charming and elegant restaurant on the first floor (US second floor) of Le Choiseul hotel, the frontline tables offer a view of the Loire. The first night we ate as part of a large group and the second night as a couple. We enjoyed excellent meals both times. With the group we all enjoyed very good fois gras, followed... More

The food was terrible, the meat overdone (and not saignant, as requested), the sauce appaling. A very expensive bad experience. Would not recomend this restaurant to anyone.

This dinner was the finest I have ever had in France. Before the dinner they served perfect little delicacies. My main course was chicken served in a new and interesting way, as a thick circular disk with sliced white meat inside and fresh, tasty vegetables. The dessert, chocolate shuffle with praline ice cream was lovely and they followed it with... More

The service, atmosphere and food in this restaurant were all simply superb. From the moment we were greeted in this elegant venue, we found the dining experience to be amongst the best of the recent trip to Amboise, Brantome, Mirambeau, and Paris. Thank you to the staff for creating a memorable experience.

Have visited this restaurant a few times- used to have a michelin star, has a beautiful location with views to the Loire in the exquisite town of Amboise. Sadly we were greatly disappointed- the charm, elegance and cuisine have been much eroded over the last couple of years. Positives- Mains of lobster and Turbot were good , the touraine house...

Having read the reviews and looked at the web-site, we'd booked a table well ahead of time and were looking forward to a really well cooked, enjoyable meal. We had a window table overlooking the swiftly flowing Loire and the gradually setting sun - an excellent setting. Service was formal, somewhat impersonal and prompt (almost too prompt). Presentation of the... More
