This is a wonderful family owned business with a European flair. The food came piping hot and was very tasty. The wiener schnitzel was lightly breaded and didn't taste heavy with grease. We were there on a Tuesday night when the early bird fixed price dinners are available all night so it was a very good value.

The she crab soup is superb and the sauted soft shell crab is unique. Service is excellent in a cozy, relaxed environment.

We ate here on Christmas Eve. I expected to be wowed due to its high rating. The food was average, not good, not bad. The restaurant is in need of renovations badly! I felt as if I had stepped back into the 70's! Service was excellent, price was way over what it should be. We might give it another try... More

We've been here before and the place has never failed to provide excellent service and fantastic food. We always ask for Amanda (daughter of owners) to be our server. She is terrific. The "early bird special" (which now seems to be both Monday and Tuesday all evening) is a great deal. The gazpacho is excellent. We almost always order the... More

No where else in Bluffton or Hilton Head SC would you experience Pate, Souffles and many delectable main courses. Claude, the chef never disappoints with his culinary creations. The staff is so welcoming. Close your eyes and you will be transported to a bistro in Paris.

Our first time to the quaint Claude & Uli's Bistro. We decided to enjoy the Prix Fixe (3 course special). Atmosphere very nice although the tables are very close (european style, waiter okay (nothing special) and the service was good.
