We chanced upon this little restaurant & I am so glad we did. It was the highlight of our stay in Clermont-Ferrand. As we ate our first meal we just knew we wanted to come back the next day (our last). We savoured every mouthful of every course & neither of us could pick a favourite as they were all... More

It was a bistro style restaurant with great value-for-money lunch menu. If you wish to have more time to travelling instead of sitting hours for fine dining, it really is the perfect choice for you. We had this amazing escalope of veal and it was just so tender and special. The rissoto with truffles was also so goood! The millie... More
