Having read the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we set off to find this restaurant on our arrival in Amboise. At first, I was put off by the small menu and burgers on offer. We almost went somewhere else, but SO glad we didn't! Whatever you do, don't miss out on this relaxed, friendly restaurant with excellent cooking! I had a salmon dish that was simply divine and everything was made from scratch on the premises. The wine choice was overwhelming, but we were given a lovely guide through the many bottled by the owner/manager, who was more than happy to chat in French or English. He only stocks local wines and the red we chose (made by the man up the road!) was glorious.

Great atmosphere and great value for money.

The place for wine lovers!! A large choice of wine from the area that you can drink in or take away.
The decoration is original and refined! Nice Terrasse
As refined as the food! Great burgers and you can try some specialities from the area such as: La fouace à 'landouillette" or the revisited "soupe de fraise au coteaux du layon".
2 minutes from the castle, really worth to walk a bit more to find that place!!

This is a lovely restaurant that has charming service and a unique menu--"steak hache" with a variety of condiments and perfect pomme frites, and the surprising bonus of ketchup! Glorious, rich, salty Heinz tasting stuff, the only proper accompaniment to fries, I don't know how the French get along without it, except, perhaps, that their mayo is so good. The wine list is very well chosen and available to go, even to taste if that's what's open for the house. Service was friendly, attentive, and informative when needed, speaking good English, but not flaunting it. Patio dining was a relief from the busy streets of Amboise. We would recommend L'Echanson to anyone ready for a break from typical "French" cuisine.
