Gourmet restaurant in Amboise

A feast for all the senses in the Loire valley

Ideally located in the heart of the Loire castles, 2 km from the royal city of Amboise in a bucolic park overlooking the Loire, the Château de Pray offers the ideal setting for a highly gourmet journey! Its gastronomic restaurant, one star in the Michelin Guide, invites you to taste a subtle cuisine with perfumes and flavors from here and elsewhere in an atypical place: a spacious and luminous partly troglodyte room or during the fine weather our south-facing terrace overlooking the Loire.

Opening hours: 
Lunch: 12pm - 1:30pm
Dinner: 7pm - 9pm 

Welcome to L’Orangerie

Our troglodyte room to welcome you

A feast for the eyes! Our restaurant, just a stone’s throw from Amboise, welcomes you to our beautiful troglodyte dining room, L’Orangerie. This unique 120 m² room is 4 metres in height with a stone ceiling carved into the hillside. Its two bay windows with wide arched windows open onto the castle’s main courtyard, letting in natural daylight. 
Our team will be delighted to welcome you whatever the season to discover the gastronomic cuisine of our Chef Arnaud Philippon.
