We went for lunch with some friends, I had the steak and dauphinois - was delicious! The service was good but slow and had to ask a few times for a coffee! Would return when next in Amboise! The decor was very trendy and the food was tasty and fresh. (Merci beaucoup)!

We had dinner here twice and on both occasions the food was delightful, served with unobtrusive panache and reasonably priced. Not Michelin, perhaps but very acceptable after a tiring day visiting the sights. The ambience is modern French, light and airy. Highly recommended.

If you are not sure about french food, don't go here. The atmosphere is nice, service fast and efficient We are use to plates a little less elaborated...too much sauce . It looks fresh but I insist....not sure about French Cuisine? Try somewhere else

We enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant. The staff are polite and efficient and the food was well cooked and nicely presented. The menu offers a good selection of dishes and they have an extensive wine list. Good food and reasonably priced.

Decided on having supper at Hippeau Brasserie after looking at various menus in Amboise. Ordered a 1/2 litre of local wine at 13 euro. We each ordered the plat du jour, 24 euro each. My partner had the salmon gravlox with side salad, white fish with risotto for the main and creme brulee for dessert. I had the escargot in... More

We went there for dinner because we reviewed the menu while sightseeing. There was no delay getting a table since we went early. It took about 10 minutes before a waiter came to our table while other tables were being served. I was about ready to leave when a waiter finally showed up and he was not at all helpful.... More

We came in late, unbooked, for lunch and ordered the set menu: terrine, hamburger frites, fromage blanc all for 14,50€. The hamburgers were particularly good, and cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

Could not fault it. Despite reading other reviews, we had really good service on the two evening visits we made last week and the food was of a high standard. The weather was poor for the time of year so glad the restaurant was cosy inside. Will go back next time we are in Amboise.

2 mins to the Amboise Royal Chateau Easy place to go for lunch or dinner. Food is a good bistrot style, french cuisine. Nice salades, hamburgers, dishes from the region of Tours. When weather permitted it is nice to be at the terrasse away from the crowd and so close to the Chateau. No gastronomy, great brasserie, a good price... More
