Like most restau in France the service is not rushed and you can really enjoy a dinner. We loved the rabbit in aspic for an entree and the filet of bf and sweet breads for a main course. Another big, mouth filling, hearty Loire red.

Unpretentious setting and ambiance . Skilful cooking but nothing exceptional or particularly memorable . Delays between courses and quite a long wait for the bill. We dined there on a Sunday night when perhaps the service was not at its strongest . Overall experience average to good . Wouldn’t make any particular point of eating there again on our next visit to Amboise.

Food was above average but not mind blowing. I had the Foie Gras which was mild but nice and tenderloin which was cooked well. My wife had a salad which was nice and fresh and the turbot which she like a lot. French menu nice staff who had little English but were helpful. Relaxed atmosphere compared to some places and they seem to do what they do well.

The menu offers plenty of choices to satisfy most palates. The entrees and the plats were very tasty and creatively presented. They have a very deep wine list. The desserts are "to die for".

After reading other reviewers' complaints I feel even more compelled to leave a review about our wonderful experience at L'Alliance!

We were delighted to find this lovely, quiet restaurant in off the main tourist streets of Amboise, which was described as having fresh, seasonal menus with modern takes on traditional French cuisine. It was definitely one of our favorite dining experiences in France. We enjoyed beautiful, interesting food from a choice of set menus while being served by a gracious, warm staff.

Each of our dishes was fresh and delicious, and portions were appropriate to allow us to linger and enjoy all four courses. And the presentation of each dish was lovely and thoughtful.

English was not the first language for any of the staff we engaged, and that was absolutely fine - and even delightful - as they graciously smiled and nodded and gestured to help us understand.

We did find the inside of the restaurant a little stiff, so we opted for the outdoor patio/terrace and it was perfect! Absolutely lovely, comfortable ambiance for a quiet evening sipping our beverages and enjoying each course as it was presented to us.

Would definitely recommend and hope to return someday!
