We ordered a risotto and a small pizza, but could not finish either of them. It was too oily and heavy for us. Bring pepto bismol.

We ate here on consecutive nights and had a variety of entrees and desserts. All the food was good, the service cheerful but variable and the price typical for a bistro in the Loire. Would we eat here again, tomorrow if we could !

We ate here twice because the food was good, the price was right, and it had the feel of a local place.

Lovely place across the bridge from Amboise. We went twice while on holiday and enjoyed it very much. Both times we had pizza and salad. Fresh and tasty. Clement served us and was very helpful and a delight. Would recommend!
