The restaurant is centrally located across the street from the chateau/castle. The street has many restaurants to choose from but, after examining the sidewalk menus, we choose L’Ambacia. All the sidewalk menus were more or less the same which made it difficult to pick a...More

This place came across to me as a tourist trap. It is positioned in a great location, the host seemed friendly. However, the food is very average. The French Onion soup was tasteless and the steak was too and very tough. I would avoid in...More

We enjoyed our lunch here. I had the Croque Chèvre and my husband had the lamb. Both were delicious! The waiter didn’t speak any English but we managed to communicate.
