The environment is terrific. The owner comes to welcome you and to propose different dishes and wines. Then the problems commence. The wine was disgusting. We told them and they tried to change the wine with another bottle of the same one. They offered then a own-produced glass of wine, equally horrendous.
The meat was tough and full of nerves.
The desserts not impressive as well.
The owner disappeared. She did not even come to ask us what happened. Cherry on the cake, we paid the entire bottle of wine, that we did not drink, and they offered us the glass of own-made wine, that we did not drink either. Very disappointing... please make it simple...

Chère Madame,
Vous vous exprimiez parfaitement en français sur place, alors continuons dans la langue de Molière !
Le vin choisi n'avait aucun défaut, mais peut-être pas à votre goût, il n'y avait aucune raison de vous offrir la bouteille ...
Vous n'avez rien fait remarquer sur place pour la viande ......et votre remarque m'étonne vraiment compte tenu de la qualité des produits que nous servons.
Et je vous assure que "The owner" n'avait pas disparu, mais pourquoi ne pas faire part de votre mécontentement sur place plutôt que sur un clavier !
Bonne continuation,
Aurore DUGOUJON

I've been there yesterday with my tour group. The place is wonderful and everything was good. I've liked the wine, the menu was the one decided with the tour operator (I read it's the same for every group and it's described in other users'reviews too). The restaurant is set in a cave and the atmosphere is very suggestive, with candles and wooden furniture but quite elegant.

We went there on a recommendation from the owner of the gite and it was not disappointing. This place is entirely inside the mountain (the Cave) - thus comfortable temperature even the outside was 36C when we were there.
The beef on the grill was so tempting that even there was only 2 of us, we ordered the 1.5kg T-bone! It was done very nice, rare inside and charred, smoky all around.
What got us was the souffle. We have had the privilege to sample souffle from all over the world and it is hard pressed to find one done so perfectly. We had the grand marnier souffle and when it came out, you can't help but notice the aroma, the lightness and the "size" - it was large!
We learned that you cannot just order the souffle, you would need to order at least another Starter before they would let you order.
We would go back without any hesitation.

This place is fantastic. Roaring wood fire in the center of the dining room. Elegant professional service. My choice: delicate Foie gras de Canard and magnificent Coquille de St. Jacques. All the little extras made the lunch special. An amuse-bouche, welcoming glass of champagne, great dessert, wine of our choice at the table and coffee all for a 49€ menu. After you do this, go to Amboise and enjoy that beautiful city. My friends took me to both places, wouldn't have found them by myself.
