The location of this cocktail bar is exceptional, which explains its attraction. We have not had a look inside, so can't comment on the interior, but in my opinion it only really makes sense to visit on a warm day when you can sit outside...More

Exceptional Cocktails with good Bar Food. Sitting inside is nowhere near as GREAT when it's warm enough to sit outdoors. I would say it's EXCELLENT when you can sit outdoors on the river with a view of the Chateau d'Amboise.

This is for casual eating only. It's main attractions are the extraordinary view and great ambiance, especially in the evening, as it's a cocktail bar. There is an English meet-up on the 1st Friday of the month.
