Description: Located in Fernandina's Historic District since 1996, Le Clos serves delicious Provençal dishes by candlelight in a charming, intimate 1906 cottage. Chef/Owner Katherine Ewing received full degrees in both cuisine and pastry from Le Cordon Bleu and L'Ecole de Gastronomie Francaise Ritz-Escoffier, Paris, and trained at the Ritz Hotel, Paris, France. The menu items at Le Clos are prepared carefully and presented beautifully with an emphasis on local fresh seafood. The eclectic wine list offers the perfect accompaniment for every menu selection. Attire is resort casual.

This restaurant is a strong notch above the norm in Fernandina Beach. Excellent beef and duck meatloaf. Also they really fill your wine glass, not the usual stinginess!

Came in with a friend and had a great time! The atmosphere was as if we were in France. We started with the calamari and it was so good, not sure what the sauce was but it tasted amazing! The duck was by far the best I’ve ever had. Didn’t think we could have dessert, but we went for it anyway and thank god we did. That chocolate cake was soooo good!!

I had a lovely dinner at Le Clos with my family. It was a special occasion as my brother was home visiting. We needed to take him to our favorite restaurant on our favorite island! The escargot is quite memorable and one of the best I’ve had in all my travels. Le Clos is a wonder restaurant and I highly recommend for any occasion!

This was our first visit to Le Clos and we were thrilled with our choice. The atmosphere was charming and conducive to a relaxed gourmet meal. From appetizers to dessert the meal was Delicious! Our entries were the pork tenderloin, scallops, and their meat loaf.We all loved what we had ordered and were delighted with the presentation and the friendly service. We will certainly look forward to returning to this wonderful restaurant on Amelia Island again and again.

This is Katherine Ewing, Chef/Owner of Le Clos. I'm so glad you enjoyed your evening and I appreciate your comment about "noise". We have many quiet evenings, however, there are times when it can get noisy. We do have a beautiful, quiet garden where you might wish to dine next time. I sincerely appreciate your comments about our food and service. Many thanks, for the time you took to comment.
