This is really a bar with a few nibbles. The caesar salad is really good. If you are looking for a restaurant, this isn't it, but if you want icream, do go. The cocktails are great, the ice creams are amazing, the view is the best anywhere in Amboise and the staff are wonderful. You can ask for a blanket if it gets chilly. Go and watch the sunset!

This bar is on the island in the middle of the Loire river looking towards the Chateau walls on the opposite river bank. What great views, and sometimes the Chateau walls are light up after dark, limited menu but a massive bar list. The cocktails come in large buckets!

Stopped in for a cocktail and for the great view of the château. So much choice but husband and I went for champagne based ones, the framboise was delicious. Cost 10.50 Euros each. Also shared a tasty cheese tart. Drinks came with a fabulous complimentary bar snack ( olives, little toasts with goat cheese and some crudités and dip). Highly recommended.

The view from Le Shaker is unbeatable in Amboise , overlooking the chateaux right across the river. However, the french toast style dessert made this place worthy of going back night after night. You can't go wrong with any of the desserts but we found the recommendation by Phillipe (owner?) to be the best dessert that any in our group had the entire trip (and quite possibly ever). Highly recommend. Also, a nice place to go if eating late.

We had a great dinner with our two young daughters there. It's a funky pub/restaurant that treated our kids like princesses. The chocolate fondue and cheese tart are especially delicious. The music was fun, and had us bouncing and laughing in our seats. Highly recommended for a very reasonably priced, delicious meal!
