We were 3 nights in the area & ended up eating here twice, food is lovely, prices are reasonable & wines... Totally fell in love with their Maria Louise cava/bubbles. We ended up visiting their vineyard where they sell them & bought lots of wines & also delicatessen with us. Definitely worth of visit!! Merci!

Dinner starts at 17:00. We had the onion soup gratinee, the toasted goat cheese salad and a Malbec. The bill was under 30€ but the best part is we left satisfied and happy. This is a no frills, clean, relatively fast restaurant that makes you feel like you're eating at a relatives house. No pretensions, just good food at a... More

Had to sit outside as restaurant was so busy, but the food was worth it. Steaming hot and very tasty with a decent price. Good selection of wine also.

While strolling through Amboise saw Chez Bruno and we're lucky to get an early table, as it filled up,very quickly on a Monday evening and many were turned away as we sat there. We had delicious French onion soup only, as we were not too hungry but the other meals looked amazing. But the best for us is how well... More

We spend 4 nights in Amboise and had 2 really great dinners. Chez Bruno was recommended by a local, the atmosphere was a bit lacking but the food and service was excellent. The pork in a butter tarragon sauce was exceptional. Really a great experience and not full of tourist, they had quite a few locals as well.

Extremely slow and apparently unconcerned with table service. In particular, ordered a salad as MAIN PLATE, not entree. They served it to me with others entrees where it sat for 35 minutes letting the warm goat cheese solidify until others had their main course served. Would not return.

As another reviewer notes, hearty inland food. Mainly big portions of meat plus pike as the one fish offering. For starters, we had a good pate de fois gras. One of us enjoyed the onion soup very much but another did not. For mains, the pork shoulder for one was tasty and actually enough for two. The duck with Armagnac... More
