Our last night in Amboise was spent here having dinner and it was a good choice. It's a little pricey bu the food and the service was good. The hamburgers are delicious and huge. Check first - you might need a reservation.

I don't get this place at all. Burgers on the menu but the fish we ordered was on a weird bent plate laid out like haute cuisine and a cocktail of the day offered. The bottle of wine we had was recommended by the waitress...More
