I happened to eat at this restaurant, thanks to the courtesy of Le Choiseul staff who, seeing the rainy weather outside make it impossible to travel to the center of the town, talked to the staff of the restaurant to receive our cash if we had no reservation.
The service was impeccable, the food was especially tasty, and the selection of local wines associated with the food I liked very much.
It is worth visiting this restaurant, but do not forget to book early.
I recommend!

Thrilled to report another amazing meal at Amboise. Our hotel recommended Le 36 & we were able to make reservations online. Got seated by the window overlooking the river and the beautiful orange sunset. We picked from a la carte options. The amouse bouche was a great play of flavors - from watermelon juice to chicken fois gras. I had the crispy langoustine, the sea bass with quinoa & mushroom base. And finally the soufflé - no words to describe it!

Had a wonderful dinner with impeccable service. Beautiful 2011 bourguille as well. Amuse Boucher were interesting especially the salmon. Sea bass tartare was excellent as were toasted langoustines. The quail with duck foie gras was artistry on the plate and beautifully done. Definetly would go back.

A really substandard and extremely overpriced restaurant. The food was formally presented but with no flavour or originality to back it up. The langoustine starter was a particular low point - the langoustine put me in mind of a greasy crispy shrimp from a low-grade Chinese takeout joint, and was served with two indistinguishable dollops of flavourless whipped cream (one of which was apparently supposed to be apple flavoured). The quail was served with a smear of over-salty, over-reduced jus which tasted like packet gravy granules. The amuse-bouches and petits-fours were stale and bland. And to add insult to injury, they tried to charge us for a significantly more expensive bottle of wine than we had drunk - and were reluctant to admit their mistake! Came out at €125 per head - a massive rip-off. You can eat much better in Amboise; for instance, at Les Arpents or Château de Pray

Very attentive service and generally good food (although the base of the pavlova was rock hard). However, the whole experience was over far too quickly. We just got the impression that they wanted to get home.
