Excellent meal in an unhurried setting. We both enjoyed our dishes...my scallops were superb and my husband's chicken outstanding. Attention to detail worth noting. The only disappointment was the salad which was uninspiring, just lettuce and dressing.

Gloria from Le Vieux Manior send us here on our first evening. We were able to walk from the B&B and enjoyed a fine meal. The first of many "amuse bouche" during our trip.

This is a french pub with an offer of honest food. The menu is not extensive and the products and quality is very good. The prices are very reasonable for the food you're having.

Per recommendation of our B&B hosts, we came to this lovely restaurant. We enjoyed delicious food and wine at reasonable prices. The service was good. The location was perfect - walking distance from our B&B. Would definitely return.

We spent 5 days in Paris, 4 in Bayeux, and 4 in Amboise, and his was the best restaurant we visited. I have to qualify this comment. We never had a bad meal in France. Generally, the food is well prepared, attractively presented, and good. But this one stood out. If the others were 8, this one was close to... More

We both had the gazpacho, cheese course and panna cotta. For a main, I had fish while he had pork. We accompanied this with a nice bottle of Sancerre. All dishes... More

When in Amboise, we tried L'Alliance Restaurant for one of our dinners. I tried their four course tasting menus and my wife ordered a smaller dinner. Both of our meals were quite tasty, and I found the tasting menu to provide a good overview of their menu. We each were also offered a cheese course at the end with local... More
