Every trip to CFE merits a pit stop at Le Chardonnay. Ris de Veau (a k a SweetBreads) is not an easy find in SC. Especially well prepared. Great wine. Cafe gourmand hit the spot. See you next time. Les Canadiens (plats d'ardoise) Souvenez vous ?

though the food was not 'excellent', it was still tasty and an enjoyable meal, service was appropriate but not exeptionelly attentive, overall a nice decent french restaurant, which I would recomment, but one should not expect a 'wow-factor' for smokers: the terasse is heated and wind protected

A bistro in the centre of town near the cathedral Le Chardonnay is popular with locals. The menu is not extensive but the food is excellent and the staff friendly. Well worth the walk up the hill in our opinion.

The restaurant is situated near the cathedral and is a long walk up the hill . The place is OK, the service is OK and the food is OK+ but I would not walk up the hill again! Clermont- Ferrand is not a friendly tourist town and its difficult to find a good place to eat,

Thank Moonlighter88
