Interesting to read previous reviews before we arrived as casual customers for a Thursday lunch in late September. A very gracious welcome and we were happy to be given water and some amuse bouche before considering which of the set menus to select. It certainly was not hurried but as we had cycled there from Villefranche a quick meal was... More

Beautiful restaurant, but all and all this did not live up to its expectations. After more than 1 hour, we still didn't had a chance to look at the menu. During this time, the water glasses were also empty. After 2 hours we almost asked for the bread basket that fortunatly arrived a bit later with the first plate. When... More

What a fantastic find. Lovely hotel, modern, light and airy. My only recommendation would be the addition of air conditioning the rooms were so hot. The restaurant was truly wonderful and each course was a delight. Expect to dine for 3-4 hours to savour the food. Will definitely be back

Hopefully my title says it all - the food and flavours continue to surprise (this wasn't our first visit). The style has developed and is improved. The dining room was full the staff always on hand but never too assertive. My one small gripe - wine not on the table - I know this is a style and service thing... More

As another reviewer points out, dinner here is an endless procession of tiny plates with inventive and novel tastes and combinations. This is a gastronomic experience, not necessarily a dining one. And service is excellent and reasonably attentive. I'm not sure I would use the word "fussy," as the other review does, but I understand that concept -- I'd call... More

The food is inventive – a surprise menu only – and they pay extra attention to the wine matches. Service is friendly and professional. Prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

I am going to go against the general flow of opinion here as everyone else seems to love it. There are just too many small bites of food, too many foams, creams and panacottas. I do not deny it is all very carefully assembled and looks nice but there is no substance, nothing to get your teeth into, If i... More

Splendid gastronomique restaurant - very attentive but discrete service. Excellent quality food with delicate & sophisticated presentation. The restaurant itself is a blend of modern - an environment of warmth and calm. We will be back!!

Decided to stop off in Beaujolais after a visit to Aubusson and found the Auberge du Clochemerle as it was recommended online I believe on Decanter magazine. Didn't check trip advisor this time. What a marvellous surprise. Quite simply the food, service and all round experience was one of the best gourmet tasting meals I have ever had. There are... More

The cooking here is spectacular. I can't recall how many amuse bouches arrived but each was both stunning in presentation and taste. My starter was a slice of Foie Gras on a slice of apple with grapes, my wife had mushrooms in a cream sauce. Mains were pigeon and veal, both cooked and presented to perfection. If I'm to be...
