The food, the staff, the location and the wine, all fantastic. Wine from owners own vineyard! Foie gras on steak - exceptional! Super creme brulee!

We had a table booked at Château de Pray the following evening so we wanted something a bit more relaxed. We were recommended Chez Bruno by our hotel, who told us that is was good bistro food, and they very kindly reserved us a table for 8pm. When we arrived, it was very busy so we were glad we had a table waiting for us. We were given the menu which had a good choice of simple but tasty sounding food on. I started with the chicken and pork terrine which was flavoursome, whilst my wife chose foie gras, which was the best she had eaten during our holiday. For my main, I went with lamb cutlets. These were cooked perfectly (nice and pink) and had good flavour. My wife chose steak for her main, and whilst it wasn't a patch on some of the steak we've had before, it was one of the better ones we had in France. We both had a glass of Vouvray during our meal which was very nice and reasonably priced.
Service was quick, polite and friendly, and like all of the restaurants we visited in Amboise, English was spoken by the service team.
Had we stayed longer in Amboise, we certainly would have returned here for another meal.

Chez Bruno must have been doing something right, because we ended up dining there three times during our short stay in Amboise. Reasons that come to mind: the excellent setting, under the ramparts of the chateau; the friendly and helpful service; the great food (the duck with armagnac sauce was really good). One other good detail: it was possible to have wine by the glass, and then purchase bottles of some of it, so that we could have a chance to try wines out with food, and then buy bottles of the wines that we liked the best. Chez Bruno was definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Amboise, and we would happily go back again.

Very good and friendly little restaurant.
1st we were afraid because it is located in the main tourist street.
No reason to be scared, as this little restaurant is very good.
Eat my best steak tartar in France. Everything from appetizers to desserts was very good.
Service was both attentive and friendly and they are all young people.
Good wine from its own winery.
So fortunate to have found this place..
