Had a nice idyllic lunch at the patio - with a view of the chateau. Reasonable prices for the menu of the day. Excellent food, nice dessert and we also had a couple of glasses of Belgian beer.

We have eaten here twice while in Amboise and the food was delicious. The confit duck with honey sauce was sensational as was the chicken fillet with chili/yoghurt sauce and the salmon and prawn salad. The service was excellent.
